Everytime I boot my mac, I get a message telling me to install an se6 runtime. This happened ever since I updated to OS X 10.9 Mavericks. I already installed it, but keeps appeaaring evey time I turn it on. How do I stop this?


MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Late 2012), OS X Mavericks (10.9)

    One of your login items is probably causing it.

    Go to System Preferences > Users and Groups > Login Items

     

    Select anything that you don't need to use at start up and remove them.

    It has notihng to do with my login items. Apparently, as I've tried stating earlier, this is a strange message that tells me that I need to install something called SE6 runtime to be able to run java. Do Macs even need java? This message kept popping up ever since I installed mavericks. I tried downloading this so-called se6 runtime software with a successfully installed alert at the end. But the next day when I power on my mac again, and again with it. Please help! thanksScreen Shot 2013-11-26 at 11.20.39 AM.png

    Triple-click anywhere in the line below on this page to select it:

    find /[AL]* -type d -name *.app -prune -exec sh -c 'ls -R "$1" | grep -q \.jar\$' {} {} \; -print0 2> /dev/null | xargs -0 basename -s .app | open -ef

     

    Copy the selected text to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination command-C.

     

    Launch the Terminal application in any of the following ways:

     

    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)

     

    ☞ In the Finder, select Go Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.

     

    ☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Terminal in the icon grid.

     

    Paste into the Terminal window by pressing the key combination command-V. I've tested these instructions only with the Safari web browser. If you use another browser, you may have to press the return key after pasting.

     

    The command may take a noticeable amount of time to run. Wait for a new line ending in a dollar sign (“$”) to appear.

     

    A TextEdit window will open with the output of the command. If the command produced no output, the window will be empty. The applications listed in the output have Java components.

    I tried doing all that. I don't know what for and why exactly. But the problem still persists. I keep receiving this window whenever I power on or restart my computer. Plus, I'm not exactly sure if a Mac really needs Java. This might be a potential virus probably. Fortunately though I heard that apple products are not prone to viruses, so it won't affect any files within the laptop. Apparently, this window keeps popping up in front of me and I just click not now.

    Java is common on Macs, viruses are uncommon. It's not a virus.

     

    Do a safe mode start, does it appear then?

  • Fadi1992 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Ok, how do I do a safe mode start?

  • Csound1 Level 8 Level 8 (40,340 points)

    Hold the shift key down as soon as you hear the startup chime, hold it until the progress bar appears.

     

    Safe mode takes longer to boot, don't interrupt the startup, be patient. :)

    I tried doing all that. I don't know what for and why exactly.

     

    As I wrote earlier, the purpose was to find out which Java applications you've installed. One of them is causing the problem.

  • Fadi1992 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Ok, so I did a safe boot to my mac, and the window that told me that I need to install an SE6 runtime did not pop up fortuantely. After that, I booted my mac normally as I would do often, and the window reappeared. Any solution to that?

  • Fadi1992 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Adding to that, as I've tried stating earlier, I already installed this software for around 5 times already, but the same exact window keeps showing.

  • Fadi1992 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Ok, so I did all this. There was no output. The second window that popped up was empty. I believe this is something really strange, and I don't know if any other user has experienced this same exact problem.

  • Fadi1992 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I seriously think this is a bug. I did not even have Java installed on my mac up until just now, in hope that it will solve the problem but didn't. I also tried reporting it to apple by chatting live with an agent. They told me that they cannot provide help with any third-party software. However, I did not even install that.Screen Shot 2013-12-07 at 1.16.54 PM.png
