My MacBook Air recently started displaying popups from Keychain Access, even though I never activated it. I tried to reset the keychain to default, but when I create a password for it, it doesn't recognize it.

I recently accessed iCloud via System Preferences to enable keychain (works fine on my MacBook Pro), and now my iCloud won't recognize my username or password, it tells me I can't sign in at this time.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Keychain Access on Mavericks is a complete PITA, and can't be fixed like it used to on Lion.

Save yourself a ballache. Create a new user account, delete your existing one. No more keychain issues.

Thanks for the idea, but I still cannot access anything. The same popup comes up, can't access iTunes, or iMessages. Still can't sign into my iCloud account.
