Well, it's something in the MessagesKit framework ;-)
I don't know specifically what it does, but I have it running on my machine, and it's built into an OS X framework. I figure if you kill it, then Messages may stop working or something.

That whole framework should not be there. You may have installed the expired beta of Messages. Back up all data, then reinstall the OS. Even that may not get rid of it. In that case, you'll have to erase, install, and restore your data from a backup.

Thanks William & Linc,
Yes Linc you are correct I did install the expired iMessages Beta.
This may also be linked to another problem I have been having, again for which you were assisting...
(This has incidentally become a problem again, and I will respond to that as suggested.)
A sample of the process reveals references to the AddressBook, etc processes.
It seems as though an erase, install and restore is almost inevitable

Not true. I have this framework on my machines, and it's running:

So the answer here is a little unclear and I have this issue as well where soagent is constantly "Not Responding" ... should I remove this file or should it be there?
I really don't want to go through the fresh install of Mavericks and restore from Time Machine process, we're not using Windows after all.
I should be able to go into the depths of the files and remove what needs removing no? Any guidance on a solution?

An upgrade to Mavericks solved this problem for me. While I eventually did a fresh reinstall for other reasons, the Mavericks upgrade had already eliminated this bug.
Apologies but I don't have the technical knowledge to assist with your idea to remove / reinstall the associated files. I'd recommend against this path, unless you can find someone out there with the in depth knowledge to achieve this without "breaking" anything else.

I am having the same problem. Not sure what this is. Upgrade to Mavericks caused the problem.

I think you mentioned that soagent shouldn't be running ? Is that still the case? I've not noticed that process running until more recently it's running on all of my machines
Thanks for your help.
