    Hey.. unlocking the keychain uses my regular access password (asks for keychain pw, but no problems)... when I go to take a look at a specific password, it asks me to enter my keychain password (problem here) -- this pw is refused.

    seeing as the word pw is in the above paragraph 16 times, here's a grab.

    Thanks for any help.

    Are you entering the same password for unlocking your keychain as you are when looking at a specific password?

    Have you ever had to reset you admin password, because of either forgetting it, or you just wanted to change it?
    If so, any keychains under the old admin password will still require that password, and not your new one. That may be the reason why some keychain entries are showing and others are not.

    nope

    heya,

    to the best of my knowledge, I've never changed the password... also, the specific pw pictured above was entered in the past few days... therefore definitely not under a different admin pw.

    thanks,

    Mike
