Security Update? No thank you.
The last time I updated it resulted in that notorious 'your network settings have been changed by another application' dialog popping up. It appeared at a most inconvinient time - when I was trying to get connected to the wifi link at a friends office. As thousands of others have found out before me, no amount of clicking on it will make the rediculous dialog go away. So I had no choice but to pack up and go home and get online with my Linux box to find the cure. What's the cure?
Go to Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration and delete the following (suggest make copies to the desktop first if in doubt): com.apple.airport.preferences.plist NetworkInterfaces.plist preferences.plist com.apple.nat.plistThe above remedy is not something I came up with on my own - i found it on a site - several sites in fact. It has plagarised so often that it's impossible to find the original source - so I am not going to give a link. The same update caused my father's bluetooth mouse to stop working - the update had effected his bluetooth preferences instead of the network preferences.
