    OK, got it. I cannot use that site because as soon as I put in my information the zip code doesn't match anything in Canada, obviously, so I get the "no service" response. But I know what you are...

    krs, I'm puzzled because that is entirely different from what I am seeing. I opened Brave, Preferences, Additional Settings, Addresses and more and make sure the slider for "Save and fill addresses"...

    Sly, it's not a warning, it's more of an option. I seem to recall that it asked if I wanted to delete the song from iTunes only, or also from the computer. So the default seems to be iTunes only, but...

    I'm with Raz0rEdge here. No third party fan controls, just let the OS handle it. I do use iStats to monitor temps. I had gotten rid of it a few years ago, for some reason I cannot remember. But now...

    Sarah, is this your first Mac? Knowing that may help us communicate better with you. You didn't answer what Mac it was, just gave the operating system. The disk being locked may be because you are...

    I don't use iTunes, but can he sort or filter on "loved" status and get all the unloved songs together, select them all and delete them all at once? I remember that the option to keep or delete the...

    Well, at first that sort of worked, but it quickly degenerated. RS-232 was a protocol for serial connections but quickly became shorthand for a cable with a DB-25 or DB-9 connector on it. Then the...

    @krs, have you actually entered addresses into the fields at any website using Brave? The reason I ask is that from the setting screens it looks like Brave will save an address if you enable it to do...

    OK, apparently Apple created VM as a partition/volume back in history at some time. It's mounted at /private/var/vm for those interested. Mine is just over 1GB in size because there is a file called...

    OnyX did not change the VM Volume size. That size is dynamic, so there really is 1GB of *something* cached there. This may take some research to find out what's going on.
  11. UPDATE: I found this at eclecticlight.co: ...

    UPDATE: I found this at eclecticlight.co:



    Clearly, VM can get much larger than 20KB. Wonder if OnyX purges that in maintenance? And what the impact would be?
  12. Patrick, not a developer debug menu (Isn't that...

    Patrick, not a developer debug menu (Isn't that in Safari?) but it does have a "View" option in the upper left corner of the default window where you can select to View Only Volumes or All Devices....
  13. @krs, the feature in Safari is called "autofill"...

    @krs, the feature in Safari is called "autofill" and is found in Safari/Preferences with a tab labelled just that. There you can control what Safari fills in for you. Brave has that same feature...

    The installer is most likely a hidden .dmg file. Starting an upgrade like that changes certain parts of the OS to boot differently because installation is a bit of a trick. The system on the boot...

    Ian, as I recall, if you select "Remove from Library" you are given the choice of keeping the file itself or deleting it totally. That was what I was trying to remember in post #7. I haven't used...

    Hello, Keith. To solve your original problem,...

    Hello, Keith. To solve your original problem, find the app that won't open, right click on it and then choose Open. You will get a warning of some sort that it is not an "official" or "approved" app...
  17. The reason I asked that question twice is that...

    The reason I asked that question twice is that the installer may well be a hidden (to you) dmg file that has been set to the default startup. It won't show in DU or Finder unless it is mounted, but...
  18. Actually, I think you get the option to delete...

    Actually, I think you get the option to delete both the track from iTunes and the track from the computer. I don't use iTunes any more, but I recall there was a popup box that asked if I wanted to...
  19. Nah, Patrick, if it doesn't get answered I'll...

    Nah, Patrick, if it doesn't get answered I'll just move on. The interrupted upgrade has changed the default boot drive, I think, and until we know what it says and that he's looked at it there just...
  20. Again, did you follow Patrick's suggestion in...

    Again, did you follow Patrick's suggestion in post #3 to make sure the right drive is set for boot?

    Yes, it would be very reasonable to do that. EasyFind won't "fix" anything, but it will allow you to find anything on any drive.

    Let me suggest instead of "tooth n nail" to use "sweetness and light" in your approach. The Apple folks sometimes stretch warranty work, and it seems to be more often when the interaction is nice....

    @johnchristy44, I think you are moving the mouse, ever so slightly, as you click. I just tried it on your post and was able to click on a single character (space) just fine.

    On the other hand, to...

    The sooner you send it in, the sooner you get it back. Sounds like the PSU has issues. That's about all I've got. Is it still under AppleCare?

    You left out that after entering that command, she will be prompted to enter her password, and that as she types it in, it will NOT appear. Just enter it, press Return and it will execute.
