    This error message pops up every 10 seconds and i have tried everything to get rid of it. The process is called "nsapAgent" in the activity monitor. any help would be great!

    do a search in the finder for "spyalert" or "internet cleanup".

    once you find the program, drag it to the trash unless you intend to purchase a license for it, which is the other way to make that message go away.

    How to get rid of annoying "Network SpyAlert Protection Expired!" alert

    Product Platform: MacOSX
    Used Product For: Less than a month

    This was supplied by a helpful member who got it from the software development board. It seemed a common enough problem that I felt it warranted posting here to help other unfortunates who dared to trust Allume.

    1) I want you to go to the "Applications" folder and check to see there are NO "Internet Cleanup 1.0.x" or "Internet Cleanup 2.0.x" folders there. If they're there, please delete them.

    2) Go to your "MacintoshHD:Library:CFMSupport:" location, where "MacintoshHD" is the name of your hard drive and check to see that "ICRuntimeSupportLib2" has been deleted. If it hasn't, please delete it.

    3) Please navigate to "MacintoshHD:System:Library:Extensions:" and make sure that "NetBlockade.kext" and "NetworkSpyAlert.kext" have been removed. If they haven't, please delete them. You'll need to authenticate to remove them. If you have trouble with step, please let me know. It's very important these files are removed or you'll continue to get expiration alerts.

    4) Go to "MacintoshHD:Library:preferences:" and remove any file that contains the "aladdinsys" or "allume" name in it.

    5) Go to "MacintoshHD:Users:username:Library:preferences:", where "username" is your login name and "MacintoshHD" is your hard drive, and remove any file that contains the "aladdinsys" or "allume" name in it.

    6) Reboot your machine again. Make sure your trash is empty.

    it's true though, no real need for it at this point in time; all the big flaws for the most part seem to be unix level, and those get patched fairly quickly by the open source community :cool:
