Since a power outage a couple of days ago (when the computer was off but still plugged in), the system keeps asking me if I want to allow incoming connections for AppleVNCServer.bundle. I click "allow" but it asks me again and all other users at login. In fact, it sometimes asks at the main login screen, too.

 

In Firewall I have checked "Set access for specific services and applications". I have tried deleting everything from the firewall list and checking "Allow all incoming connections", which fixes it, but I want to limit access. When I go back and re-check specific services, the system again asks me to allow incoming connections for AppleVNCServer.bundle along with a bunch of other things. I "allow" all those it asks for but the AppleVNCServer.bundle setting doesn't stick. It keeps asking me to allow or deny, even though it is listed in the firewall as an allowed application.

 

I'm very frustrated. I'm considering using Time Machine to go back to the pre-power outage state, but what exactly should I recover from Time Machine? The whole system folder?

 

Any other ideas to solve this problem?

 

Thanks very much.
