    You can disable xprotect temporarily with:

    sudo launchctl unload /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.xprotectupdater.plist

    Restart your browser.

    It will be re-enabled on your next reboot.

     

    Or if you want to reactivate it immeditely, run

    sudo launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.xprotectupdater.plist

    Bad idea doing this. However, you have a missing step. I need to enable 434 for a specific app. Once done, I undo the changes. After changing XProtect.meta.plist file, you've likely changed its permissions to:

    -rw-------

     

    You need to fix those permissions for the system to use the file. The permissions should be:

    -rw-r--r--

     

    Fix the permissions with:

     

    sudo chmod 644 /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources/XProtect.meta. plist

     

    An even better option is to use the defaults command. That way you can quickly change it and change it back when you are done. Below is the method to enable Java 1.6.0_37-b06-434, followed by re-enabling Java 1.6.0_37-b06-435 for when you're done.

     

    # Re-enable Java 1.6.0_37-b06-434

    defaults write /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources/XProtect.meta JavaWebComponentVersionMinimum -string 1.6.0_37-b06-434

    chmod 644 /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources/XProtect.meta. plist


     

    # Re-enable Java 1.6.0_37-b06-435

    defaults write /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources/XProtect.meta JavaWebComponentVersionMinimum -string 1.6.0_37-b06-435

    chmod 644 /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources/XProtect.meta. plist

     

     

     

    To change the Plugin Bundle version:

    defaults write /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources/XProtect.meta MinimumPlugInBundleVersion -string 1.7.11.22

    chmod 644 /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources/XProtect.meta. plist

    After I deleted the xprotect.meta.plist, my comp became unable to play all the youtube videos etc. Even after I downloaded Java again, it's still the same problem.

    Can someone help pls? thanks...

    Note that this is a very old thread and I strongly suggest you not pay attention to anything you have read here.

    There is no need to have deleted that file and you have now removed some of the critical security protection provided by OS X to keep you safe while browsing the internet.

     

    Java is unrelated to the playing of YouTube videos, etc.

     

    If you want help you need to start a new thread with a subject related to your problem, otherwise almost nobody else will notice that you have posted here.
