when he tried to login switch is not accepting "7933$Yed852852"
Password to change for login is vty password except in the case that login local is configured on vty line.
So, check is separate password configured under vty line

line vty 0 4
 pasword XXXX

you can crack type 7 password online easily for example - here

if vty line is configured as

line vty 0 4
 login local

Than you need to use local account for login, in your case
username: cisco
password: 7933$Yed852852
also if
(config)# enable secret yyyy
is configure you will be prompt to type password to access privileged mode.
enable secret password
in you case you will be prompt to type: password
since that's the password that you configured to access privileged mode
