    Every time I power up my mac pro, I get the attached message upon start-up.

    If I click on 'Relaunch' it does nothing.
    I have reported it, but nothing has changed.
    Clicking on 'ignore' makes it go away, but it reappears every time I power up my CPU.

    AppleCare didn't even know what it meant either!

    Any suggestions? What is "LOGINserver" anyway? :confused:

    Mkrishnan you are totally brilliant! Yes, I do have a Brother printer installed, and after reading all the postings you linked to, I now know the remedy.

    I will uninstall the printer and get the latest driver from Brother. I will send an update once I have done this. Thank you ever so much. It was driving me crazy!

    p.s. The Brother printer sucks anyway (eats ink even when not powered up) so I will consider dumping it soon.

    Cheers!

    Glad to help. :) These kinds of bugs are a major pain, because you would never expect that having a printer plugged into your computer would cause the login process to fail. :rolleyes: And I very much sympathize about ink eating printers... they're such a pain. If I ever get a home printer again, I'm sticking with laser just to be able to do things like print boarding passes and so on.
