Go to the Applications folder and start up the Font Book app and do File > Restore Standard Fonts and restart. If that doesn't work, try a Safe Boot.

Best guess is font corruption at OS-level Reinstall your current OS's latest combo updater - find it here & refine the search at top left for your actual current OS.

Not really - the OS is designed to do all the network transfer that the routers will allow. From a systems perspective - the network is so slow compared to storage, CPU, memory - that any attempt to hobble that subsystem is really a poor use of the computer. You would need to have traffic shaping tools on the router or connect the Mac to the router using a ...

I don't think you NEED an antivirus (In 25 years I have never used one and never had a virus). I do have the free ClamXav which I use to scan external disks before mounting on my Mac.

There should be a progress bar underneath the Launchpad dock icon. If you removed Launchpad from your dock, open it through Spotlight, then search for the icon of the app you are installing (which in your case would be Xcode). There should be a progress bar and further status information on it.

Slack is a well-known chatting tool and I am yet to hear it does any surveillance. Also, every single Mac app which is submitted into App Store after June 1 of 2012 must have sandboxing implemented or it won't be approved. Additionally, no app is able to access your computer outside of its limits unless you give it your root password (Slack does not ask for ...

After I fought with the issue for a few hours, I found the solution. Open Mac App Store and log out of the account. Restart your Mac. Log in to the account again. You might have to log out of the account first before restarting, for your information.

MDM (Mobile Device Management) profiles can change many settings within the system. As you suspected, in this case the software update mechanism was redirected to a company server. There were likely other settings as well. If the profile forced all network traffic through a VPN, then the company could view it in transit. You can check by looking in the ...

There was an answer here: https://superuser.com/questions/412854/appstore-how-to-use-english-only-interface Here is what was said there: As far as I know, the language of the AppStore App is always determined by the country in which your account was registered. The AppStore app is basically just a webview which means that the localization is done ...

Give that this is an older question, I’m hoping that @wadda_wadda has solved his Mac OS X App Store update problem. For those who might encounter this problem in the future, or need a way of forcing an app update here’s a method that will hopefully help. If you want to see what updates your system already has on it for a specific app, or any app for that ...

As everyone else has mentioned, it's a problem with the serial number. I also just encountered this, but on a virtual machine. By default, Fusion gives it some extremely long serial number, which the App Store doesn't like. To fix, edit the .vmx file and add the following line: SMBIOS.use12CharSerialNumber = "TRUE" Hope this helps!

First, close the app store or itunes, etc. I fixed this by opening a terminal, then getting a super user terminal: sudo su - enter your password now be careful. You are root. Next we want to kill all the App Store related processes. This doesn't hurt anything. Let's find them using the ps command and then using the grep search utility to get down to what we ...
