    So I had to install like flash 10 today or something and now ever since Safari keeps popping up with keychain not find and will not remember any passwords for stuff like facebook. I have hit reset multiple times but it still won't work.
    How can I fix this?

    try creating a new keychain.

    Do you have too many keychains?

    Try editing the one in the keychain app.

    If you have clicked Reset To Defaults twice

    Go to ~/Library/Keychains/
    Delete login.keychain
    Rename the "login_renamed1.keychain" file to "login.keychain"

    Can someone help me with this? I don't know how to do this. I can't find the library.

    It's in your home folder.

    Are you in the library in your user folder, or the library in the Macintosh HD folder?

    You need to be in the one in your user folder.

    after some googling I tried KeyChain first aid, but that did not work either.

    I really need to fix this. I can't browse the internet for more than a few minutes without this stupid window stopping me.

    Do you have a Time Machine backup of the keychain from that folder, one from before this started happening?

    Navigate to the folder where you deleted the one file, then enter TM.

    Wow that is a great idea! I did not even think of that!

    Ok I restored it as of Friday, and just replaced both the files.

    Let's see if it worked....!

    Edit:

    I think that worked!!! I just connected to my server with no pop up windows, and my facebook!
    Thanks!!
