    The Keychain is a way to save all your passwords to servers elsewhere,
    protected by a single master password. To get rid of it, try moving the
    contents of the "Keychains" folder (in the Preferences folder in the
    System Folder) to the Trash or, if you want to be safe, to some other
    temporary holding place. Then when you restart, you should find that you
    have no keychain defined.

    As far as I recall, the Keychain is not used to control access to the
    machine itself.

    Run /Applications/Utilities/Keychain Access and delete all your
    keys.

    If the system wants to access something and can't find a key for
    it it'll just stop and ask you for your password.
