Ok, so this problem came along just a day ago. Heres what happened.

 

It started with comments not showing up on YouTube. Then, when I would try to login it would say "login failed, try again". For my Google account I couldn't login either. When I tried to login to my Google account it simply redirected me to the login page, and it doesn't say wrong password either. There is no error message. This happens with all other websites! I'm surprised discussions.apple.com let me in. Phew. But other than that, all of the other websites wont let me log in!! Its really annoying and I'm starting to think my accounts/internet was hacked.

 

THINGS I'VE TRIED

-Switching browsers

-Resetting my browsers and emptying their caches.

-Completely resetting my computer with a hard reset.

-I did a zero-pass overwrite on it too.

 

note- the hard reset may have not worked completely tho, my computer originally has 640 gb of memory. But when i reset the computer I still only had 582 left. Thanks for the help.

 

I ALSO WAS ABLE TO LOGIN ON MY MOMS COMPUTER WHO IS RUNNING THE SAME INTERNET AS ME! ALL MY ACCOUNTS WORK ON HER LAPTOP. THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS THAT I'M RUNNING OFF OF A WIRELESS ROUTER IN HER ROOM.

    Hi Jesse,

     

    Sounds like you've developed a Permissions problem or Keychain problem on your Mac.

     

    Safe Boot from the HD, (holding Shift key down at bootup), run Disk Utility in Applications>Utilities, then highlight your drive, click on Repair Permissions.

     

    In Finder do a get Info on...

     

    /Users/YourUserName/Library/Keychains/

     

    Folder, do you see any strange rights there?

     

    Open Keychain Access in Utilities, use Keychain First Aid under the Window Menu item, then either check the Password under that item, change it, or delete it and start over.

     

    Then See if this helps...

    Resetting your keychain in Mac OS X...

     

    If Keychain First Aid finds an issue that it cannot repair, or if you do not know your keychain password, you may need to reset your keychain.
