    That toolbar/ct plugin seems to cause problems for all who install it!

     

    If you are running Tiger or Leopard:

     

    Close Safari, then locate and delete the following files and it should be gone:

     

    /Library/Application Support/Conduit

    /Library/InputManagers/CTLoader

    /Library/Receipts/ctloader.pkg

    /Library/Receipts/<Toolbar name>.pkg

    /Library/Application Support/SIMBL/Plugins/CT2285220.bundle

    /Users/<User name>/Library/Application Support/Conduit

     

    where / is the root library on your Hard Disk.

     

    If you are running Snow Leopard you should also look here:

     

    Library/launchAgents/com.conduit.loader.agent.plist

    Library/Application support/conduit plugins

     

    Also, as mentioned by Gilli2000:

     

    Library/Receipts - If you read it, it has information in it at the bottom referring extensively to "CT" and "community toolbar".

     

    Maybe it is harmless, but trash those items anyway!

     

    If you are running Lion:

     

    From the Finder Menu bar, select Go ▹ Go to Folder, and in the box that opens write:

     

    ~/Library/Application Support/Conduit

     

    Delete the second item if it is there.

     

    Now select Go to Folder again and enter  /Library

     

    From the folder that opens, delete the following items if they are there (you may need your login password):

     

    Application Support/Conduit

    InputManagers/CTLoader

    LaunchAgents/com.conduit.loader.agent.plist

    ScriptingAdditions/ct_scripting.osax

     

    then close the folder. Now select Go to Folder again and write: /Applications/Toolbars

     

    Delete that item and close the Finder windows you opened. Log out then log back in, and you should be rid of it.

     

    Note: Safari does not support any third-party toolbars except those supplied as an extension to Safari via the Extension Gallery.

    I don't have any files in the locations you listed. Any other thoughts? I tried redownloading the toolbar to go through the uninstall that way but it doesn't support Safari 6. I tried to remove Safari to download an older version but Lion won't let me remove Safari.

    Try draging the internet plug-ins located at your HD Library to your desktop then restart.

    Location:

    Macintosh HD/Library/Internet Plug-ins

     

    Also try dragging the com.safari.plist and lockfile on the desktop.

    Location:

    Macintosh HD/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Safari.plist

  • azhatr Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I removed the plugins (after copying to my desktop) and that appears to fix the issue. Can't believe it was that simple. I could not find the com.apple.Safari.plist in my Preferences folder.

     

    My next steps is I'll go back through the plugins, add them back in and see if I can figure out which one is causing the problem. Will post back what I find.

  • Paldeng Level 2 Level 2 (285 points)

    Fantastic! For the plugins you can anytime download flash etc, if the machine ask for it.

     

    Sorry for the Safari mybad. Its on /Macintosh HD/Users/(your User)/Library/Preferences. No need to reset it though.

  • azhatr Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Interesting. I ended up adding all plugins back in and the error still won't pop up anymore. SWEEET!!!!!

     

    Now I just need to figure out why my icloud bookmarks aren't showing up on my mac (separate issue).

     

    Thanks for the help!!!!

  • Klaus1 Level 8 Level 8 (45,360 points)

    Good to hear - thanks for the feedback!

  • Windy Meadow Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Thanks for information.  I started to remove the plug ins one at a time, until the error message went away.  I just had to remove two.  The information above does work.

  • MRaulli Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Thanks Klaus1, you ROCK!!! I removed the first plugin and now Safari is Community Toolbar error free!
