    So i was resetting the admin password for a friend on his macbook and after i have done this ive had nothin but problems. After the reset it kept asking him for keychain passwords when he would try to open programs i got that taken care of but, now everytime he restarts his cmoputer he has to type in his password to login, he wants it set up so that he just hits the on button and thats its. I cant find what to do now, thanks in advance

    You need to set his password to nothing or you can have the computer automatically log in to his account.

    Also, if you're running into Keychain problems, you need to reset your keychain.

    Keychain Access>Preferences>Reset My Keychain.

    What do you see when you go into Accounts (Login Options) in System Preferences?

    Automatic Login: username

    Try resetting the account to auto login. It may be trying to use the old password.
