After the login refused to allow me access (my password was correct), I reset the password then ever since, I keep getting this annoying keychain login pop-ups. It has never happened before. How do I get rid of it? (all of the pop-ups using the Safari, iChat, etc)

Mac OS X (10.5.8)

    If you reset your password from the accounts window, it should have reset your keychain. If you reset your password from the install disk, you may have to manually reset your keychain through keychain access or advanced options. Apple's article shows how the keychain needs to be reset. If all else fails, and you feel comfortable navigating in finder window, go to your home folder, library, keychains, and move your keychain.login to the desktop area, log out/back in. Then you can test with Safari, iChat, etc, and it should not prompt for password. If it does, then enter it...hope this helps : )
