    Hello,

    This is annoying the **** out of me. I've installed El Capitan on my Macbook Pro Retina 2013, when I try to open files I've downloaded I'm prompted with a "verifying file" bar (see pic). It doesn't move, I have to cancel it, open the file again and then no verification needed. IT'S SO ANNOYING!! How can I get it to go away?! I don't have FileVault on.

    That looks like a font you installed trying to verify. Go to the Font Book app and remove that font.

    This isn't part of filevault; the operating system is trying to verify the signature of the file. To stop the verification, if you need to use that font, type the following into Terminal:
    Code:
     xattr -d com.apple.quarantine
    then, before pressing return/enter, put in a space, then drag the file into the Terminal window and press return or enter.
