    First time opening an app EACH time i open it!?
    Hi all,
    Ok, not each time, but i regularly get a message when i open an app, say word, which i don't use regularly, saying that this is the first time i am opening this app, and do i wish to proceed? What's up with that? Not a major prob but annoying. I use onyx to clean my system fairly often. Am i cleaning some log file which makes it appear i haven't used the app before?

    Happens to me, too, after dumping the caches with AppleJack. But not every time.

    Dock means nothing, those are just aliases. Are the Apps inside your Applications Folder?

    Same as Browny. This happens to me sometimes when I deep clean the system with MainMenu. And then again, it isn't all apps that do this, only a couple till, I guess, the system gets its bearings in order again.
