    I'm a recently converted PC user and so far we love our iMac. The only issue we're having is with Key Chain and the Google Notifier. On my account I use the Gmail Notifier with no issues what so ever, on my Wife's account every time she logs in the Gmail Notifier asks her for her account information, when she inputs it, she is then prompted to input another password for the Key Chain. Every time she logs in it happens.

    The odd thing is that when I search for the Key Chain program in her profile I find the program, and I'm able to access it, however when I search for it in mine nothing comes up. We both have admin accounts, and the first account created was mine. Is Key Chain a separate program or does it come as part of OSX?

    You help would be much appreciated as this is starting to drive her crazy.

    Keychain Access is an application that comes with OS X and stores all your passwords and certificates. I haven't used or heard of Google Notifier but I don't think the Keychain prompt should appear all the time. What I suggest you do is reset it and see what happens.
    To reset Keychain Access:

    Keychain Access>Preferences>Reset My Keychain

    After I posted last night I did a bit more playing around, and it appears my Key Chain was corrupt or something like that. All I had to do was click repair and its all fixed!

    Thanks for the reply!
