I have four computers synchronized using mobile me to one mobile me account.  This has usually worked flawlessly recently one of the computers is having keychain problems though.  It seems that it is not getting access anymore.  If you try to open any item in the keychain you get a message that says Access to this Item is Restricted.  This lack of access is creating alot of problems on this machine.  I have this set up this way so that My wife and two daughters and I can share accounts and access, etc...  I have tried the Keychain first aid, I have tried replacing the Keychain in the sync process (by deregistering and then reregistering this computer and replacing the keychain instead of merging, I have tried deleting com.apple.keychainaccess.plist from library/preferences and then restarting my computer.  I vaguely recall needing to set a value somewhere to allow keychain sharing??? but can't remember for certain and can't find anything like that now.  Your help/Assistance is most appreciated!!! Thank you in advance!

Macbookpro, Mac OS X (10.6.2)

    Open the Date & Time preference pane in System Preferences, select the Date & Time tab, and unlock the pane if necessary by clicking the lock icon and authenticating. If the box labeled "Set date & time automatically" is checked, uncheck it. Check the box. Close the System Preferences window and try again.

    Hi, thank you for the quick reply.  I had it checked, I unchecked then closed system preferences and opened the keychain, same problem.  I also tried restarting but that did not seem to change things.  I think I had previously gone to keychain, then chose edit Keychain list and clicked the shared box?  Is that appropriate or important?

    I am also now getting a message when I go to Mobile Me that Keychain Error There was a problem saving to your keychain.  Try again or use keychain access to verify your keychain.???

    Sorry, I don't use Mobile Me and we've exhausted what I know about the subject. I hope someone else will be able to help you.

    Actually I had this for a moment earlier. But I just put it down to my internet connection.
