on Mac, program password protected


I just bought this Mac from a friend. Dreamweaver is password protected. They gave me my password, but when I enter my password, it just keeps asking for my password again.

How do I get into my program?

Is it asking for your keychain password? (something akin to the screenshot below)?  If so, ask your friend what the keychain password is.  You're not trying to install the program, are you?

Now it's just pausing for a long time and doing nothing when I double click on the dreamweaver icon.

How do I know if I have access to this program?

Thanks btw :)
Is anything showing up in the logs?  Watch the Console.app while you try to start the application, and see what gets logged. (It's in the utilities folder)  The other thing to try is delete your Dreamweaver preferences.  In the Finder, go to the "Go" menu, and select "Go to Folder" then type in: ~/Library/Preferences/ making sure that the finder window is in "List View" so you can sort the list by "Date Modified" look for adobe stuff, and move those files to a new folder on the desktop -- you'll prbably delete them later, but dont' delete them yet, as you may want to restore them if something doesn't work out.  Try restarting Dreamweaver, and see what happens.  If you could tell me what the logs say, and what happens after you remove the preferences, that would help me troubleshoot a little farther.
