Shut down and restart in Safe mode or restart in the Recovery drive and use Disk Utility to Repair Disk. That should give the best chance for getting Safari running again. Now download Firefox or Chrome as a backup browser for the future. If you have Time Machine running, you could revert your Home/Library/Safari to a date before the problem occurred.

I just found ControlPlane, lasted version is 1.6.5. It's a great application that can take certain actions upon certain context change events, e.g. context change event can be connected to a specified WiFi network (per SSID), and action can be switch locations. And here is a step-by-step guide, which explains how to achieve this using ControlPlane.

I'm not a developer or a guru in all of the available keys with launch daemons, but that is kind of a tall order as by design, root can do anything. I'm thinking you would basically be creating a security "virus" that would have a helper mechanism reload the daemon if it gets unloaded.

First things first: Don't! I had a similar situation a while ago – but since I already knew what is possible, I didn't even consider installing or running or loading anything personal on that machine.

I have so many questions right now. What would you do if you're in my situation? Personally I would not load anything terribly personal onto the company owned Mac. This is especially true if you're loading anything ONLY onto that Mac, as the company likely has no obligation to allow retrieval of the data if you are terminated. Should ...

If they own the hardware then you have no rights whatsoever beyond what they might extend to you and they can do whatever they so please. I would never under any circumstances mix and or access anything personal from a work computer!

Yosemite is taking all RAM during the dead start, allow it to boot for more than 40 minutes. The screen will eventually go black, allow it to continue... finally, it will finish the start up and present the normal login screen. After 10 minutes of sluggish operation, it will be normal. Eventually Apple may fix the problem.

This post seems like the most likely answer to your question. In Terminal, cd to your drive where ls should list all files, including your hidden ones. To 'unhide' a file in Finder, type chflags nohidden [folder name] Where [folder name] is obviously the name of your hidden folder. Note I've confirmed this working on my Mac running OSX.10 Yosemite and ...

I assume you're using an operating system greater than 10.7 (10.8 - 10.10)? With Mountain Lion (10.8), Apple moved the software update process to the Mac App Store application. Prior to 10.8 Software Updates were handled in the manner the link describes. As such System Preferences had a Software Update section for managing timing of update checks. ...

Try and format the disk by using Disk Utility built into the installer (Utility > Disk Utility) then try and reinstall. This should work since 'Macintosh HD' is only a volume and not the actual SSD. I used this method to fix the b-node tree error or whatever it is where I couldn't write to it.

[Edited to reflect screen shots] Technically that is 1 Hard Drive and 4 partitions (see how they are all indented from the drive they are in).

I have experimented a bit with this, and I found out that on a non retina display, a screen capture is done with 150 dpi when using the pdf format from the commandline.
