Since a few days, I have to enter my admin password every time some app wants to access the keychain. I enter the password and every thing works fine. However, the next day I am asked for the password again. This is driving me mad as there are quite a few apps and services asking for the admin password.

I added some examples of this prompt, but I have got more.

I already tried rebooting my iMac, but that didn't help.
I did not change my user/admin password.

Apple support pages say to go to “Change Password for Keychain 'login.'” in the Keychain app, but this option is greyed out......

How do I solve this?

Well, I did a NVRAM reset several times and everything seemed to be working again. However, a few hours later the problem came back :(
