    Actually, Keychain First Aid is built-in to some versions of OS X. Before trying  the download above, go to your Applications:Utility folder and open KeyChain Assistant. The pull down the first menu to "KeyChain First Aid"

    Assisted Solution

    this happen because your key chain password is not synchronized anymore.

    try to in the account preference pane and change your password (you can put your old password as your new password if you don't want to change it).

    see that works and lets us know !
