That DL article works for me on 10.10 - Do you have another browser or computer to do the download? If not, you might have to go to a friend's or Apple Store and get help directly from the genius bar.

It's because it is not an app it's a boot plugin runn by the system, So there is (as far as I know ) no solution to that issue, if you don't want to reverse engineer MacOsX itself.

Does this occur at all times, even after restarts and for other users, too? To test, please logout and then login to the account on which this artifact appears.
