    So im on my MacBook, i try to open an application on the dock and then an error with the logo of the app comes up saying "Application could not be opened due to error -10810". So then i tried opening other apps on my dock no luck, same error, then i tried opening through my Applications folder same thing. All my currently opened apps work fine, but if i quit them and try to reopen them the error comes up.

    So i restarted, all was fine after that, i could open and close and reopen apps fine, but after 3-4 hours i come back and then i try to open apps and the thing error comes back! i restarted 2-3 times but it still comes back after some time!!

    My specs are MacBook 1.83 GHz Intel Core Duo 1.5 gb ram running Mac OS X 10.5.4... I don't want to reinstall leopard!

    1. Run disk utilities from the HD, and repair permissions.

    2. Remove or update old 3rd Party System Preference panes.

    2a. The ones in System Preferences > Other. ;)

    Any luck? Because I occasionally get the error, but not for several days. There is another guy here that gets it almost every day.

    unfortunately I found no answer for this problem no matter what I did. I resorted to reinstalling leopard, it was a pain but I already had most of my stuff backed up already. No problems since then. Good luck if you find anything please share I'm curious what you can do.

    Error 10810

    Does anybody have any news on how to solve this problem? - it's driving us nuts. The only solution I've found is a leopard reinstall which seems a little drastic.

    Mine has not done it in a while. I didn't do anything to fix it. I'm not considering it to have gone away, but it hasn't pop'd up in a while. Also the other guy has not come complaining to me in a while. So I don't know if he is just not bothering me or if it has stopped on his as well. If I find out anything, I'll be sure to post.

    No cure at present for 10810 at present - Apple running for the hills

    I have been discussing this problem with various levels of tech at Apple for the last two and a half months. The level 2 and above techs are pretty good in comparison to the level one techs, whose level of knowledge is less than my dog (my dog knows that Mac remotes don't taste good even after a good chew, so that is at least one fact more than most of these "read off the list" guys know). There is no cure for this issue at the moment. A reinstall may make it go away or it may not. Setting up a new user and running from that may make it go away or usually not. The main prevention is not to attach any external storage devices but that is hardly a practical solution in this networked age.

    The really bad news is: APPLE IS NOT WORKING ON A SOLUTION FOR 10.6.3. Can you believe that!

    The two threads on Apple's forum have had close to 75,000 hits on them and they have still got their head in the sand on this. A friend of mine bought a new 27" iMac and had it on his first day, before he had installed any other software, so it is without doubt an Apple issue not down to us the end users (otherwise known as MUGS). Some of the level 2 techs say "oh yes, we know all about this" and others say "Apple is not aware of an issue". Well with 75,000 hits on threads on this issue on their own forum, you would rather hope that they might - idiots. This issue has riled me more than anything else to do with software since leaving Windoze behind some 6 years ago.

    What with Adobe issuing a Lightroom update (2.6) that crashes on pretty much every 64 bit system (W7 and OSX.6), when importing DNG's, you wonder about the testing procedures of these guys.

    That's junk. Don't download it. The first thing I saw was "Registry" and since Mac OS X does not have one, it's a junk application.

    Salmar,

    This is what is called "scareware".It is a criminal operation and the trolls selling it are fraudsters. It will do nothing on a Mac but on a PC, it will usually instal a Botnet or a trojan that sends all your credit card data (looks for 16 digit numbers, either stored or as keystrokes) to a nice man in Latvia, who will spend your money for you to save you the trouble.

    DO NOT NOT NOT DOWNLOAD ANYTHING FROM THIS SITE

    Apple now censoring posts on this subject that they don't like

    Guys,

    The cover up on this 10810 Finder Error is getting serious. Apple has taken to censoring posts, which they don't like, on the 10810 thread on their forum. This one of mine got removed - it was in reply to a guy with a band new i7 iMac that was doing it all the time. If they only want a forum which makes sycophantic comments on how the sun shines out of Apple's proverbial, then fine but most will stop using it and go over to a real forum like MacRumors - Thank you MacRumors.

    Nick,

    As one of the newest machines suffering this problem, may I ask you to write a "signed for" legalistic letter to Apple's customer relations department, demanding a solution. A similar letter to the operation from whom you purchased should also be sent, as your contractual relationship lies with the seller. The more pressure we can apply to Apple on this issue, the more likely we are to wake them out of their apparent somnolent state on this.

    If nothing is contained in 10.6.3 on this, which is what I suspect, I may well contact one of the Californian (the state of registration of Apple Corp) legal companies specialising in class action suits and see if they would be interested in taking this on. I have had it with Apple's buck passing, evasion and dilatoriness on this matter.
