Keychain on Safari

I got a MacBook Pro from my uncle about 2 months ago. He had previously used it. I opened up the keychain access and got rid of all the keychains. However, every time I open Safari, it asks for a keychain password. I can hit cancel, but it pops up with almost every page. This really gets annoying and frustrating.

Does anyone know what to do in order to get this from stop popping up? Thanks!

Mine is also called login for Safari, however, I can't find that on the left of the Keychain Access. It has:

All items
Passwords
Certificates
My Certificates
Keys
Secure Notes

Under passwords, it has AppleShare, Application and Internet, but I can't delete any of those.
