The three are:

EyeTV Helper
Microsoft AU Daemon
AdobeResourceSynchronizer

The EyeTV Helper has an icon that is the same as EyeTV's icon in the Dock while the other two have the same icon - the one that looks like two sheets of paper with the pencil, brush and ruler forming an A.

For some reason, only the EyeTV Helper and AdobeResourceSynchronizer have the boxes checked.

I'm not familiar with any of those items, so I won't suggest that you mess with them.

You can, however, try moving

~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginitems.plist
~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginwindow.plist
~/Library/Preferences/loginwindow.plist

to your desktop and restarting to see what happens.

(Edited) If you don't see any changes in your situation you can simply restore them to ~/Library/Preferences and overwrite any new files (only the 3rd one, but unpopulated, in my instance) that have been created.

If, however, you see positive changes, we can take it from there.

Note: It didn't occurr to me until just now to mention that when you ran the OS X 10.6.8 Combo it overwrote Safari 5.1 with Safari 5.0.5 (which, for some unknown reason, Software Update doesn't pick up on), so you need to d/l and install the v 5.1 standalone to get current if you haven't already done so. (Edit: You can check your current version of Safari at Safari > menu bar > Safari > About Safari.)

Edit: The checked boxes tell OS X to hide the applications when you log in, so I guess the unchecked box means that that app isn't visible under any circumstances.

I did that and interestingly, on restart, only com.apple.loginwindow.plist appeared in the Prefs Folder. I figured that having the other prefs might require some change, so I removed and re-added the Volume Control.

However, on re-start I still have only com.apple.loginwindow.plist. The Terminal instruction defaults read com.apple.systemuiserver shows a list with the Volume Control.

I then did the same as above in my User Library except that it only contained:

com.apple.loginitems.plist
loginwindow.plist

and on restart only com.apple.loginitems.plist appeared in the Prefs Folder.

The non-appearance of the other Prefs doesn't seem to be having any adverse effects so I'll just leave them out and let the system restore them when it thinks they're necessary. Since everything seems to be okay, and the Menu Bar is not only loading okay but also loading more quickly, I'll press on.

Thanks for everything so far.

I'm running Safari 5.1

Thanks for the heads-up.

Update:

At this log-in the machine took a moment to pop in my All Sites pages so I checked toe Prefs folder and the User Library now has loginwindow.plist. So it appears: "Just leave them alone and they'll come home, wagging their tails behind them".

Aside from the fact that what you've reported does not jive with my (repeated) experience, while researching another issue I just deleted ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginwindow.plist and it hasn't been recreated after multiple restarts, so I'm assuming that it became a redundant leftover when I upgraded from Leopard to Snow Leopard.

Whoa there! You've gotten your apples and oranges confused... SystemUIServer has nothing to do with Login Items; the former controls the icons on the right side of your menu bar, while your Login Items are the apps and/or utilities that automatically launch at log-in.

I dunno, ryck... Under the same circumstances, I just moved both files to my desktop and restarted, and, again, only loginwindow.plist was recreated. I'm confused , but I don't think it's critical.

You've got your apples and oranges confused again... If you look in /Apps/Sys Prefs > Accounts > Login Items you'll likely find that it has not repopulated itself fully, if at all, and whichever of

EyeTV Helper
Microsoft AU Daemon
AdobeResourceSynchronizer


is/are not present is/are not launching at login, which is probably costing you functionality. Further, I not only doubt that OS X will restore them, I've got no idea how to restore them (which is why I didn't suggest that you mess with them), so it may be helpful if you've still got the original files that you moved.

On the other hand, though, it seems like one of those three items was affecting the loading of your menu bar!

Thanks for the heads-up.


Aaah! I just searched this thread and found that you've apparently never rerun the OS X 10.6.8 Combo, so my heads-up was moot.

> Update:

Thoroughly confused in addition to not even knowing what your "All Sites pages" are.

Isn't that interesting. Even though I'm also Snow Leopard 10.6.8, I get different results.

~Hard Drive/Library/Preferences ....still only has com.apple.loginwindow.plist and things are working fine.

The only change, and it's cosmetic, is that the picture behind the login window reverted to that purple, cosmos thing that the OS comes with. However, even after restoring it to one of Apple's Nature images, no other plist has yet appeared. I thought that changing a "preference" might create a plist to keep track of it.

Another interesting one. In my case ~User/Library/Preferences ....has com.apple.loginwindow.plist and loginwindow.plist.

Actually, I didn't realize that would happen by removing a plist....however it's not an issue. I did keep the previous plists but I don't think I'll need them.

I started EyeTV and opened the Help file. The EyeTV Helper was restored in Login Items.

I checked around and learned that Microsoft AU Daemon is associated with MS Office 2004 and allows for checking updates automatically. I opened the MS Updater and set it to Automatic and Microsoft AU Daemon is back in Login Items.

The AdobeResourceSynchronizer is another story. It seems this has been a problem for a few people (a real CPU hog). Now, the plot thickens.

I located AdobeResourceSynchronizer (Applications Folder - right click on Adobe Reader - Show Package Contents/Contents/Support) and dragged it to the trash. Then my CleanApp opened and it had nearly 20 entries called:

AdobeResourceSynchronizer_Date and File number_User-Names-iMac.crash

They are all in a document called:

/Users/usernames/Library/Logs/CrashReporter/AdobeResourceSynchronizer...et cetera

My bad. Terminology failure...I meant the Top Sites...that little grid near the top left of Safari that provides images of the sites you most often frequent.

Got me beat!

I just did it again...moved com.apple.loginitems.plist and loginwindow.plist to my desktop and restarted, and once again, loginwindow.plist was recreated, and I've got my expected functionality; how about you in your circumstances?

Note: As I mentioned, com.apple.loginwindow.plist has not been recreated, so on the assumption that it's no longer necessary, I trashed it.

Correction: only loginwindow.plist reappears.

I note that my Tiger volume has no com.apple.loginitems.plist; login items in Tiger appear to be maintained by loginwindow.plist. In Leopard, that functionality appears to have been taken on by com.apple.loginitems.plist—its contents are similar to those of loginwindow.plist, but include redundant data and "com.apple.loginitems.legacypref" entries.

However, since my Leopard installations have all been completely fresh, loginwindow.plist cannot have been a holdover from Tiger, so apparently it still plays some necessary role in Leopard.

So we're left with ryck's anomaly.

I was confused by the fact that loginwindow.plist and com.apple.loginitems.plist seem to have overlapping functionality, but since the former is recreated and the latter follows on its heels I've just accepted the fact that that's the way it is.

The rest of your analysis agrees with my own conclusions.

And, on my machine, this morning ~Hard Drive/Library/Preferences ....continues to have only com.apple.loginwindow.plist.

However ~User/Library/Preferences now has three .... com.apple.loginwindow.plist, loginwindow.plist, and com.apple.loginitems.plist.

Perhaps that's a result of restoring EyeTV Helper and Microsoft AU Daemon.

....and ryck is happy at this point, so I wouldn't lose too much sleep over it. Everything is working well and I probably should let things go along until something happens that provides a meaningful clue. There is also the possibility that, even with an anomaly, things are fixed.

FYI....I opened the last of those AdobeResourceSynchronizer logs that CleanApp found and, in case it's of interest, the contents follow.

Well, part of the confusion is due to differing uses of the tilde character (~). In Unix, the tilde is used as shorthand for /Users/your_short_username/, so when artie suggested moving those three prefs files, he was explicitly referring to those found in your user Library: ~/Library/Preferences, not the boot volume level Library: /Library/Preferences.

I got lazy recently and began using the tilde rather than /Users/Your short name as had been my habit...short-lived exercise that was!

> ~Hard Drive/Library/Preferences ....still only has com.apple.loginwindow.plist and things are working fine.

dkmarsh has discussed the nomenclature issue, but not the file, itself... I've got the same file in /Library/Preferences, and its functionality (in my instance, anyhow) doesn't include anything that has any apparent connection to any of your issues.

> The only change, and it's cosmetic, is that the picture behind the login window reverted to that purple, cosmos thing that the OS comes with. However, even after restoring it to one of Apple's Nature images, no other plist has yet appeared. I thought that changing a "preference" might create a plist to keep track of it.

I'm totally confused by that... The default "Cosmos" image behind the login window can be changed only by a 3rd party app, not by a preference; Apple's "Nature" images (Those located at /Apps/SysPrefs > Desktop & Screensaver > Desktop > Apple are the only such items of which I'm aware.) are desktop images that affect only the default "Cosmos" desktop image.

> At this log-in the machine took a moment to pop in my All Sites pages so I checked toe Prefs folder and the User Library now has loginwindow.plist. So it appears: "Just leave them alone and they'll come home, wagging their tails behind them".

Confused again... How does Safari's "Top Sites" (Terminology failure...I meant the Top Sites...[....]) functionality fit into this discussion?

> The AdobeResourceSynchronizer is another story. It seems this has been a problem for a few people (a real CPU hog).

And that sounds like the answer to your slow-loading menu bar issue... If AdobeResourceSynchronizer was hogging resources when it loaded it would, in all likelihood, have slowed down the entire login process, and if you haven't restored ARS as a Login Item and you're no longer experiencing menu bar hangs, you've got corroborating evidence.

And, finally, please humor me, because the nomenclature issue discussed by dkmarsh has cast a bit of a shadow on your earlier reports.

You've now got com.apple.loginitems.plist,
loginwindow.plist, and
com.apple.loginwindow.plist in /Users/Your short name/Library/Preferences.

Pleeeze, just one last time, move those three files to your desktop, restart, and post which of the three is immediately recreated in /Users/Your short name/Library/Preferences. (Afterwards, you can restore the first two files to /Users/Your short name/Library/Preferences and leave the third one on your desktop; its absence should not have any adverse effects, and it should not be recreated, as it's apparently an unneeded Leopard leftover.)

Many thanks for that last. smile

Not sure whence comes your vehemence regarding one's ability to change the login window's default image without a third-party app, but you're incorrect.

I currently have displaying at the login window may_tomatoes.jpg, and this is maintained in /Library/Preferences/loginwindow.plist as follows:

Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
	<key>AdminHostInfo</key>
	<string>HostName</string>
	<key>DesktopPicture</key>
	<string>/Library/Desktop Pictures/may_tomatoes.jpg</string>
	<key>RetriesUntilHint</key>
	<integer>0</integer>
	<key>SHOWFULLNAME</key>
	<false/>
	<key>lastUser</key>
	<string>loggedIn</string>
	<key>lastUserName</key>
	<string>dkmarsh</string>
</dict>
</plist>

To effect such a change, copy the desired image to /Library/Desktop Pictures, and then in Terminal enter this command:

defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginwindow DesktopPicture "/Library/Desktop\ Pictures/image_name"

To assure yourself that this preference is really maintained by this plist, after having made such a change via a third-party app, drag the plist to the Desktop and visit the login window; it will have reverted to cosmos.jpg.

(Further note: I don't think the desired replacement picture needs to be in /Library/Desktop Pictures, but I wasn't able to change the picture to one located in my Pictures folder, apparently because the permissions on an image located there (correctly) preclude its being read by other users.)

BTW, I have plists in /Library/Preferences with the same three names as those we've been discussing in the user's prefs folder. Once again, loginwindow.plist and com.apple.loginitems.plist seem to cover the same territory—in this case, some HP login items of uncertain function which were part of my AIO software installation.

Again, I didn't know whether or not it would shed any light. However, since it occurred concurrent with everything else that was being done, I thought I should report it. I don't have sufficient knowledge to know fully what may or may not be important, so I just throw it all in.

I hope so. Right now I'm not running either Adobe Reader or Flash but, should I decide to re-install I will check to see if Adobe has popped AdobeResourceSynchronizer back in. If so, I'll just pop it back out.

Done and you're welcome. There was now only one and it was: loginwindow.plist

A check of Apps/System Prefs/Accounts/Login Items showed that EyeTV Helper and Microsoft AU Daemon were gone which, I assume, was expected.

Both EyeTV Helper and Microsoft AU Daemon have been restored and I now have the addition of com.apple.loginitems.plist

I took a little longer route as I did not know how to do it with software. I opened the Nature pictures file and copied the one I wanted. I did not make any changes to it at all, leaving it exactly the same as Apple has created it.

I opened HD/System/Library/CoreServices and removed DefaultDesktop.jpg and then renamed my Nature jpg as DefaultDesktop.jpg

I put the new DefaultDesktop.jpg into the CoreServices Folder.

Thanks for the Terminal tip.

As I indicated in my previous post, your selection for the login window picture is maintained in /Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginwindow.plist, so when you moved that file the selection reverted to the default.

When you restored it to your preferred image, no additional plist appeared because /Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginwindow.plist was already in existence. I suspect you'll see the path to that Nature image you restored to the login window if you enter the Terminal command

defaults read /Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginwindow DesktopPicture

Edited to add: That command is the Terminal equivalent to opening /Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginwindow.plist and examining the value of the Desktop Picture attribute; my point in mentioning it is just to show that the change you made is in fact recorded in that plist (assuming that it is!).

It appears to be elusive. Entering the command generated the following.

The domain/default pair of (com.apple.loginwindow, DesktopPicture) does not exist

It happened because you moved the plist in /Library rather than the one in /Users/Your short name/Library, and thanks for reporting what happened; I learned something new.

I wonder whether it was AdobeResourceSynchronizer, per se, that was at the root of your issue (assuming it's gone) or whether it was a corrupt ARS? I guess you'll find out if it's ever resurrected as a Login Item.

For the moment, though, this thread has apparently reached its logical conclusion.

Great... We've now got consistency, between you, me, and dk, anyhow, on the apparent loginwindow.plist anomaly.

Also, your assumption is correct, and the recreation of com.apple.loginitems.plist is consistent with what I've experienced.

Hopefully, "Case Closed!" is not unwarranted optimism.
