    I've just reset my password on my Macbook Pro running El Capitan using the forced terminal at Recovery 'resetpassword'.

    Since restarting that my laptop went absolutely crazy with popups regarding keychain and the Local Items keychain, which I can't seem to gain access to.

    I have attempted to delete all the keychain data in /Library/Keychain and then restart the laptop as per results via a quick Google search and that didn't achieve anything.
    A second solution I seemed to find looked for a folder with a long string of characters; which I did not seem to find in that library.

    Was just wondering if there was another way of going about this.

    Resetpassword told you what you needed to do: reboot, open Keychain Access and change the password of the keychain.

    In Keychain Access, in order to do that you need to know the old password for 'Local Hosts', one I didn't set, in order to change the password/begin to make any changes, so that's already out the window...
