    i have google notifier installed, every few minutes this box pops up and asks for my password. if i type in my password it goes away obviously

    i didn't have this trouble before i switched to snow leopard. however i probably have some user error going on.
    anyway to set the password permanently in keychain? i went into applications and removed the googleupdater program, didn't seem to help

    I noticed my dads comp was getting console spam from a different google updater after the upgrade. What google apps do you have installed? do they have the ability to turn off auto-updates (doubtful)..

    Otherwise check your login items (System Prefs > Accounts), after that your in the console looking at */Library/Launch Agents / Daemons

    i just have the gmail updater. i removed the google application updater from login items. i'll give it an hour and see what happens, thanks!

    nope, still came up. i deleted a couple of google folders on the hard drive. i think one was under library...we'll see what happens

    seems like deleting some google folders on the drive did the trick :bowdown:
