The OS X Keychain keeps on popping up on my Mountain Lion Macbook. As soon as I log into my user/admin account, I'm assaulted by three Keychain prompts, one after the other:
- Messages Agent wants to use the "login" keychain.
- Mac OS X wants to use the "login" keychain.
- Google Chrome wants to use the "login" keychain.
To my great misfortune, it is not accepting my User (Admin) password. I have no idea why. When I hit cancel, it cycles through these three prompts. I don't know if this is a virus, a Mountain Lion bug, or what.
I would appreciate it very much if someone could help me solve the issue. I have only one user account on my computer, it is the Admin account. The other account is the Guest account, which I am writing on currently. My user account is totally hosed. I can't do anything on it. I can't even reset my keychain. By "hosed" I mean I will try to delete my keychain, and I'll type in my password, but the program will just crash.
Here are some things I have tried:
- Deleting the keychain from user account (program crashed when I tried to reset it)
- I tried to delete my User/Admin account (remember, they are the same) but when I went to User Accounts, the "minus" sign was grayed out: I could add accounts, but I could not remove my Admin account.
- I do not have the install disc, so I don't know how to reinstall OS X without it.
Thanks so much. I have never ever experienced this before. Don't know if it's a virus, or what!
