Recently I have been getting this message sporadically with some applications after a restart.  Parallels even asks to be re activated sometimes.  Also, more often than not after a restart my Safari home page has defaulted back to the apple web site. 

 

I have done a complete reinstall of the OS from the retail SL disk and run the software updater.  I have repaired permissions and verified the disk.  Lastly I have dumped the com.apple.luanchservice.plst and cache.

 

Please... any other suggestions.  Its a macbook pro.

    Mackeeper, Macaroni, Onyx, cache cleaner tools of various types can make perpetually corrupted cache files.   If you are using any of these tools stop.  The only maintenance Mac OS X needs is a backup tool.

    Me, maybe, maybe not.  Alas I don't have as much time to spend on this board as I used to.  The first time may also happen if you are opening the file from a disk image as opposed to the Applications folder.

    Get Onyx and do Rebuild the Launch Services Database.

    I can assure you that Unsanity haxies and Application Enhancer in particular frequently cause major problems, especially during system or security updates.

     

    While I appreciate the usefulness of some of them, I won't use them now myself.

    None I'm afraid; and yes, I found it useful too.

     

    Interestingly there's still one application which still uses windowshade minimising - Stickies. The notes also still have that OS9 closure button on the left with the other two buttons on the right.
