    Question Error message after I installed anti virus
    I received an error message after I installed an Anti Virus program for Mac.
    the message was:
    System/Library/Extension/CDSDAudioCaptureSupport.kext was installed improperly and cannot be used. Please try reinstalling it or contact vendor for update.

    Can anyone help me with this, what it means and how I can correct it. The program installed properly.
    I am new to Apple and would like to learn properly. Thanks.

    If it was caused by installing the A-V, best recommendation I can make is uninstall the anti-virus program.

    There are at this time, no viruses that can affect OS X. It is an unnecessary application on your Mac.

    What were you doing when you received this error message?
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    Mac system extension error
    I have had the very same error and it was after installing the recent mac update which I did just after xmas 2009, Just before it asked me to complete the install with a restart, that message popped up... No idea what or where to find the application to re install it!

    I am just about to do a gloabal search as its not bothered me until now when I tried to install an application from Elgato and it cant becuse these files are missing or installed in correctly.

    Gotta say its a first for me for this to happen and Ive had my MAC since 1999 (not same machine lol)
