Any one know how to turn off "keyring" it asks for root pwd, then after that I am basicly running puter as root. + it slows things down for some reason.

What is keyring?

I assume we are talking about:
gnome-keyring is a daemon in the session, similar to ssh-agent, and other applications can use it to store passwords and other sensitive information.

The program can manage several keyrings, each with its own master password, and there is also a session keyring which is never stored to disk, but forgotten when the session ends.

Just open the Gnome System monitor and kill the process.

Thanks for the info. Every day that I learn something new about Debian is a good day.
