Does anyone know what or why just opening Safari 6.0.3 would produce the following below in my All Messages Log about 30 to 50 entries per minute?


From the All Messages Log

4/1/13 9:16:41.895 AM ReportCrash[2786]: Saved crash report for PluginProcess[2796] version 8536 (8536.28.10) to /Users/myname/Library/Logs/DiagnosticReports/PluginProcess_2013-04-01-091641-1_ imac-name.crash


Safari and the rest of the one year old iMac are functioning fine.

The log files are being turned each morning at about 1am.

The All Messages Log and the System Log are very large only because of my opening Safari.


Thanks. Vince

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3)

    In the Console window, look under User Diagnostic Reports for crash reports related to the process. The report name starts with the name of the crashed process, and ends with ".crash". Select the most recent report and post the entire contents — the text, please, not a screenshot. In the interest of privacy, I suggest that, before posting, you edit out the “Anonymous UUID,” a long string of letters, numbers, and dashes in the header of the report, if it’s present (it may not be.) Please don’t post shutdownStall, spin, or hang logs — they're very long and not helpful.

    Back up all data.

    Triple-click the line below to select it:

    ~/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/npBcsMcTcIO.plugin

    Right-click or control-click the highlighted line and select

    Services Reveal

    from the contextual menu.* A Finder window should open with an item selected. Quit the application if it's running. Move the selected item to the Desktop, leaving the window open. Relaunch the application and test. If there's no change, quit again and put the item you moved back where it was. Otherwise, delete the item you moved.

    *If you don't see the contextual menu item, copy the selected text to the Clipboard (command-C). In the Finder, select

    Go Go to Folder...

    from the menu bar, paste into the box that opens (command-V). You won't see what you pasted because a line break is included. Press return.

    Do I put those two desk items into the trash?

    I have no way of knowing.
