    What are you trying to do?  Are you using the Console application from the Utilities folder?

    there are a lot of errors massages, so I do not know how to correct them

    (com.zeobit.MacKeeper.Helper[14928]) posix_spawn("/Applications/MacKeeper.app/Contents/Resources/MacKeeper Helper.app/Contents/MacOS/MacKeeper Helper", ...): No such file or directory

    Aaaaack!  MacKeeper!

     

    Looks like you tried to uninstall it, but didn't get it all.  Something is trying to run another part that isn't there.  I'll bet you've got zillions of those messages.

     

    If there's an uninstaller, use that instead of just deleting the app.

     

    I think there have been some posts about how to get rid of that #$&#@; I'll look around and post back.

    Ah, here it is:

     

    A User Tip:  Do not install MacKeeper

     

     

    Once you get this sorted out, you may want to see if you have bloated system logs, and if space is tight, delete them.  See the green box in OSX Log Files.

    The first means something is missing, most likely on an external HD.

    If the other two were sent at the same time, they're probably all related to a video capture problem.

     

    Many of the messages you'll see in your logs don't indicate a real problem -- they'll be status messages, info for developers, etc., so don't try to figure out every message you see.

     

    If you see the same message repeated over and over (as the MacKeeper ones probably did), that's clearly a problem, of course.

     

    If you're having specific problems, but not getting messages on your screen, check for log messages that seem related (ie, sent at the same time, and/or from a process you recognize as being related).  See the blue box in OSX Log Files for help deciphering the messages.  If you're not sure about what a particular process does, many of the names of Apple processes are listed here: http://triviaware.com/macprocess/all with a brief explanation.

     

    For other processes, or other references, Google will often turn up some info.

     

    If none of that helps, post a new thread for each such problem, with as much detail as you can about what you were doing and what kind of difficulty you were having, and, of course, the message(s) that seem related.

     

    Try to post them in the appropriate forum; if you're having a problem with a specific Apple app, there may be a forum for that app, where folks who know it well hang out.

    here I come again but this time I have dragged backup files from the external hard drive in the trash can and I can't delete them cause they are locked, everytime I unplugged it they disappear if plug it files appear in the trash can.please help

  • Pondini Level 8 Level 8 (38,715 points)

    When you delete files on an external HD, they go to a (hidden) trash folder on that drive (not copied to your internal HD).  That's why they appear only when the drive is connected.

     

    Try holding down the Alt/Option key while emptying the trash.  Note that it may take quite a while to delete large backup files.

     

    If these are Time Machine backup files, and that doesn't help, see #E6 in Time Machine - Troubleshooting.

     

    Also if these are Time Machine backups, you shouldn't have to delete backups manually; Time Machine will do that for you, automatically, when it runs out of space.  See Time Machine - Frequently Asked Question #12.
