    I upgraded to 10.12.4 and all good for a day.

    now it asked for:

    System Preferences wants to use the "Local Items" keychain.

    I know my keychain password.

    bit it is rejected.
    tried my login password, it to is rejected.

    It pops up after logging in and I have to click cancel lots of times to get rind of it.

    Can anyone offer and help?

    everytime I start the mac it askes for my keychain password.

    I input it and it rejects it.
    Try the login password it rejects it.

    What did they do?
    Sadly I forgot to make a time machine back up so cant go back.

    Think I have cracked it now.

    restarted and did not ask for my keychain.
    although kicked me out skype and dropbox but just signed back in and all ok again.

    Do the following:

    Hit command-shift-G and type ~/Library and hit go. Open the Keychains folder there and delete its contents.
    Hit command-shift-G again and this time type just /Library and find Keychains again, and again delete its contents. This time you should be prompted for admin password. Restart your computer and problem should be fixed. If you see a pop up again click create new keychain and you should be good. Don't forget to empty trash after the reboot.

    I reset my keychain password in end and all was ok.

    It sent a code to my phone so I was able to change the password.
