Cool Reset Keyring Password

I'm brand new to Linux. I installed Ubuntu with WUBI installer but then forgot my password. I reset that. But now I need a password for my KeyRing (because of my Wireless password?). In order to reset that I need to know the previous password. But I don't remember that.

What do you suggest I do?

There is a similar question from 2005 on this forum

smp1980uk resolved the problem as follows
downloaed the gaim rpm and did a
rpm -Uhv gaim-1.5.0-67.i586.rpm
Does that seem like the best solution to you, despite its age?

Try deleting the directory ~/.gnome2/keyrings
From the command line it is rm -rf ~/.gnome2/keyrings
Logout, login again.
