    Hello guys

    I had same problem here, installed maverick last night then MacBook went all touchy with keychain, Mail , Safari not loading pages , impossible to log in in iCloud neither in settings or thru safari, no iMessages , etc. I tried almost all the tips on this post and nothing. Today I was on chat with a apple genius and after almost 2 hours of this and that , he decided to reinstall the software. So, this is what I did ( genius instructions )

    Shut down Mac

    Start back up the mac. Hold on command and R keys

    Choose your language. English default

    Install osx

     

    Will give you options , reinstall the software or use time machine, which I was tempted to do and go back to Mountain, but I gave a try and reinstall Mavericks. About hour and half software was installed and restart MacBook.

    Since then all was ok

    No keychain messages

    No mail password confirmation every 10 seconds

    No expired certificates in safari

    Pages loading normally

    I lost all the passwords , but  I'm trying to retrieve from my other MacBook.

    If lucky  will let you know.

    Thank you for all the post  and help by the way.

    Hope this help :)

    So it's a fresh install? You loose all your data photos etc? What's the best way to reinstall it all. I can't get time machine to work properly so that's an issue but don't want to loose all my photos etc

  • Lifeinmono Level 1 (0 points)

    I didnt loose any data so far, Iphoto ok, Itunes ok, and i just retieve all my passwords as i had hem with icloud keychain sync with my other macbook and ipad ( phew!)

    So this was the instruction genius gave me

     

    Shut down Mac

    Start up the mac. Hold on command and R keys

    Choose your language.

    Install osx

     

    computer will do the rest.

    It works for me, hope it helps...

    Here - Shellcode's reply - bingo - all sorted!

    1. Open terminal
    2. cd ~/Library/Keychains
    3. ls   
      1. When you 'ls' here you will see a folder that contains a bunch of random number liks so:
      2. 94ED610F-DD96-4ECF-A2BC-7D2F8651A464  (this number is unique on each system)
    4. rm -rf 94ED610F-DD96-4ECF-A2BC-7D2F8651A464
    5. Reboot
    6. <when you log back in everything should be back to normal>

    This worked for me. But if I clicked on the password box 1st I couldn't get into any other application.

    Hi Steve, many people seem to have succes with your sollution so I'd like to give it a try. But I'm stuck already on point 2..
    I don't get what you mean by
    2. Look for library in favourites.

    I don't see any of those in the Finder menus..

    Sorry I seems to be wired differently a lot of the time I just don't get what other get really easy..
    Could you be a bit more presize for this dummie ..?!

     

    Kind regards
    Petra

    This fixed it. You may have to right click on your /Users/<name> folder to make "Library" folder visible.

  • signs Level 1 (10 points)

  • signs Level 1 (10 points)

    This is how I solved the keychain problem...I went into an apple store and asked how do I defeat this and after a few minutes the guy said "I will have to charge you if I give you more information" so I grabbed him by the coller slapped him twice and dared him to say that again...by the time I was done he was willing to blow me....**** apple and their keychain...
