    Hi everyone. I am new here but not to Macs. I am currently running Mac OS X v10.6.5 on my MacBook Pro. Recently, everytime I restart I get an icon for "starfield update." The folder is located in my Applications folder but I don't know where it came from. A Google search didn't turn anything up. I can't close the app I have to force it closed. Is this something that should exist on my machine or is it some sort of malware?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Nonsense. Everyone knows there is no malware on Macs.

    I figured as much, but what is it? Why won't it close without forcing it closed?

    Might put a ;) smiley at the end of your joke.

    There is a reason e.g. why we got a XProtect malware-definitions update with 10.6.4 :)

    ...not nearly as spread as Windows malware - but there is [sic] malware for OsX out there...
