    Have had some performance issues and found a widget was causing it. Deleted the widget and all seemed to be OK. Now Console is reporting this. Any ideas what this is and how to fix?

    Check out this thread on another forum. It offers some techniques to track down where the cron job responsible for the messages is at. It's likely some app you have installed that added the cron job, but from the message alone you can't tell what app. Report back any progress as it seems to be an issue for a number of people as I was Google searching around.

    Check your crontabs:
    Code:
    crontab -l
    
    and root's crontab:
    Code:
    sudo crontab -l
    
    It appears to run every minute so the line should start with:
    Code:
    */1 * * * * <script>
    
    or
    Code:
    1,2,3,4...,59,60 * * * * <script>

    Go easy on me. Not as technical as you.

    Got this:

    * */5 * * * "/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/AdobeFlash" vx 1>/dev/null 2>&1

    So it seems Flash is the culprit. Now what?

    Flash is always the culprit, it's a horrible program.

    Hmm, this may be bad. Check this site, it mentions that same cron line.

    It's not really a program...
