    So, I updated to Snow Leopard, but now for some reason applications ask me for my password every time. For instance whenever I try to connect to a networked computer (with a static IP), it asks me for the Username+Password every time, and Adium asks me for my IM passwords every time I sign on.

    I checked the Keychain Access app, and the passwords are in the list, for many applications they're in it 3 or 4 times. I tried deleting them and seeing if that helps, it doesn't. I also tried making a whole new Keychain file but that didn't help either.

    Anyone know if this is a bug in Snow Leopard or something? Or any way to fix it?

    Thanks in advance:D

    I'm having the same problem.

    I don't know if it is related, but every time I open iChat, it prompts me to re-enter my password even though i have the 'remember password' box checked

    Doesn't happen to me on Adium on Snow Leopard. But I did have to click Always Allow keychain access instead of just Allow.

    You can't click Always Allow for Adium... Just the regular allow....
