I accidentally deleted my keychain access utility folder making this a big problem...I get requests on Safari and some other apps prompting me for password XXXXX have to hit cancel twice before going on...needless to say the problem has driven me crazy...I thought the folder deletion was going to cure the problem but has made it much worse...any thoughts how to fix the problem (i.e get the keychain utility) and make it so I don't have to keep hitting cancel on the prompts?

Hello,

Which version of the Mac operating system are you using? If you are using Mac OS 10.5, are you using Time Machine as a backup? If so, we can get it back with Time Machine.

10.4.11
Mac Support Specialist: Rob, Mac Genius replied 8 years ago
Ok, well I guess the simplest way is for me to give you a copy of Keychain Access. You can get it from my Public folder at my me.com account.

Go to the Finder and under the Go menu select iDisk/Other Users Public Folder

enter bub9461

and you can grab it there.

This is the actual Keychain Access app for 10.4.11 that is supposed to be located in the Applications/Utilities folder

Thank you very much. Hope we don't talk for a while. :)
Mac Support Specialist: Rob, Mac Genius replied 8 years ago
Oh, I had to zip it to be able to do this. You will have to double click it to unzip it. Then put it in your Applications/Utilities folder

Mac Support Specialist: Rob, Mac Genius replied 8 years ago
You shouldn't need my password. Make sure you select:

Other User's Public Folder

Not Other User's iDisk

Don't I need a me.com account to do this?
Mac Support Specialist: Rob, Mac Genius replied 8 years ago
I don't think so. Have you tried and it's not working?

Ok, I just put a temporary password XXXXX there so you can grab it. I'm going to change this back to my real password XXXXX so grab it real quick and post back here as soon as you get it.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
