    You may have no choice by to wipe the iPad and restore it to factory settings. You then restore it with the backup stored in iTunes on your computer.

    Backups contain the password settings, so unless the backup predates the password, restoring from a backup just restores the problem.

    So the only solution would be to add the apps one at a time from the purchased list in the app store,as well as any movies,tv shows,music,etc. From the purchased list in iTunes?

    No, you can sync the apps back via iTunes. App syncing is separate from a backup restore.

    You won't get the app's data back, though iCloud documents & data should be recoverable if the app uses that iCloud feature.

    That's good to know. Thanks for explaining it more accurately than I did.
