    Question iMac EFI Firmware Update problem
    Hi,

    Every time I do a Software Update check on my computer (iMac OS X), it keeps telling me to download the iMac EFI Firmware Update. It's version 1.3 and its size is 2.2MB. I download it fine, or at least it says it's been updated, but then when I restart my computer it is still on the Software Update list. It's kind of annoying since it gets downloaded every time. It's been doing this for months now. Any idea as to how I can fix the problem?

    Many thanks!

    Go to Disk Utility in the Utilities section, select the OS icon and hit Repair Permissions.

    Great, thanks! That definitely worked. It's just been one of those things that has been annoying me, even though it's something small. I appreciate your help!
