Looking at Console I see very long strings of the same thing, "waiting the veneer insert" Can anyone explain this please?

    I think it is a log message from some third-party software you installed.  If you really want to find out post the filenames from the following folders.  Perhaps it can be narrowed down from these.

     

    your Accounts login items

    ~/Library/LaunchAgents (i.e., in your home directory)

    /Library/LaunchAgents

    /Library/LaunchDaemons

    /Library/StartupItems

    If you post what I asked I might be able to tell you.  There may be other pieces floating around but the directories I mentioned would contain the key pieces that would cause the errant software to execute.

    Which would be great if the OP knew what he was looking for!

    Quick reply -- they are not just plists in the preference sense (although they are xml files like most plists).  These are files which are looked at boot time which direct various agents and daemons to execute as part of the boot process.

     

    That was a quick reply because I'm still looking at the items you listed.

    That description of your agents and daemons is hard to follow.  So instead use terminal and post the output from the following four commands (cut/paste them into terminal).  Just post the terminal output.

     

    ls -l ~/Library/LaunchAgents

    ls -l /Library/LaunchAgents

    ls -l /Library/LauncDaemons

    ls -l /Library/StartupItems

    If you are so adament about posting the listings I asked for I can't be of any further help.

    Remove the two items in /Library/StartupItems and I think your "strange message" will no longer be reported in the log.

     

    Reboot after removal.  Just taking them out of StarupItems is sufficient.  Whether you trash them or not is your choice.

     

    D@mn, I made a typo, so for the sake of completeness:

     

    ls -l /Library/LaunchDaemons

     

    I left the "h" out of LaunchDaemons.  Just want to make sure what's in there but I pretty sure its the StartupItems that are the problem.
