    Open up system preferences adn then click Users. After that click on login options. Check the box automatically login, and change the user to yours.

    I believe you have a corrupt keychain. The first thing to try is opening Keychain Access (in the Utilities folder inside the Applications folder) and running Keychain First Aid from the Keychain Access menu. If that fails, try deleting your login keychain then recreating it.
