After loading lion, I am now getting pop-ups saying NotificationExec is no longer supported. I cannot find what this relates to. Please tell me how to get this pop up to stop.

Navigate to: XXXXX XXXXX – you should see NotificationExec.app in that folder
Go to Force Quit (Apple menu) and make sure there aren’t any instances of the popup hanging out
Wait for the popup and click: “Not Now”
Then trash: NotificationExec.app
You may have to enter your admin password XXXXX you can change Finder
Empty trash and resume life!

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
