    ello everyone
    just need a bit of help with this annoyance.
    recently i changed some things so that i had to have a password to get onto my computer (to stop my brother using it) but now everytime i open msn messanger after startup i get a thing that keeps askin for my keychain access password, i enter the password and it works.
    does anyone know how i can stop this from happening cos its annoying.
    thank you

    Open Keychain Access-->Click MSN Messenger--> click Access Control tab.

    Probably has the box checked to ask for password

    ok you did it right delet all of it and when it asks for a password tell it cancel(or no i think) well any way dont give it a password. then it will ask to let the keychan just this once or cancel and tell it to always allow* tell me if you got more problems. that keychan is good if you know how to use it.lots of protecting.good luck



    warcraft 3 is the best

    woo, when the password thing came up i just pressed cancel and the box changed a little bit but everytime i pressed cancel it just came back, so i entered the password and it worked. i think its gone away now cos i logged out and back in again and it didnt happen.
    thanks matey

    Shot in the dark but try running cron jobs and repairing permissions.

    To run cron jobs, download a copy of MacJanitor. To repair permissions, launch Disk Utility, which is in the Utilities folder in the Applications folder.
