    Hi. I recently changed my password. I forgot it and had to reset it from another account. Now, every time a program tries to save a password (use keychain) it asks for my old password, which I don't know. Now, I can't use keychain and have to re-enter my password for everything! This is especially annoying for my WiFi passwords!

    Please Help! How do I fix this?

    Thanks,
    ARDesigns

    You can't. The whole point about keychain passwords are that they are secure.

    Edit: by that I mean you cannot recover your existing keychain. You should be able to create a new login keychain. Your current one is at ~/Library/Keychains/login.keychain. Try renaming that and then use the Keychain utility to create a new one called that...
