    Hey guys,

    So basically everything was running smooth on both my computers running el Capitan 10.11.6 and now after yesterday's security update, notification center is unresponsive on both machines. its like it literally froze. Even the clocks dont display properly. I reset PRAM and SMC and nothing. anyone else with this issue? any fixes? appreciate any help.

    UPDATE: Resoolved with the following solution

    wanted to leave what worked for me to fix this and hope it helps anyone who might be faced with the same issue: Also, there was an additional problem where beachball would show up whenver i right clicked on safari and itunes didnt open at all either.

    I went to the console app to see, today extension for itunes kept crashing, uninstalling and reinstalling. So figured itunes was the culpirt. So i reinstalled itunes on my mac from the apple website (make sure to delete itunes first using terminal command - "sudo rm -rf

    AFter resintalling itunes and rebooting the machine, VOILA! it works like a charm on both machines. Hope this helps someone
