    Reference: Finder, Go To, What is "Go To " ? When I bring up "Finder" no where can I locate: "Go To".

    That's used to go to a particular folder. For example, Finder > Go > Go To > type: /Volumes

    Launch Finder and click Go > Go to Folder and type: /Library or ~/Library
    Hold the Option key while clicking the Go menu item, which reveals your ~/Library folder in the menu.
    Make it permanently visible by entering the following command in Terminal, then press the Enter key:

    Note above, I still cannot locate "Go To".

    What version of OS X are you running? What happens if you press Shift-Command-G in Finder? You might try deleting the following, then relaunching Finder:
    /Users/yourusername/Library/Preferences/com.apple.finder.plist​

    I am running Lion OS X 10 7.4
    When I use Shift-Command-G in Finder it brings up "Go To Folder" I type in: /"Library", 60 folders come up. Where do I look for the "Insecure Startup Item ? Also, what key is "Go To" ?

    Using "Repair Disc Permissions" I receive the following:

    Repairing permissions for “Lion OSX”
    Warning: SUID file “System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/ARDAgent.app/Contents/MacOS/ARDAgent” has been modified and will not be repaired.
    Permissions differ on “usr/lib/ruby”; should be lrwxr-xr-x ; they are drwxr-xr-x .
    Repaired “usr/lib/ruby”

    Can I do anything about this ?

    Open Finder then hit shift-command-g (all three keys at once). That will popup the Go to box. Then copy/paste in the path below.

    Code:
    /Library/StartupItems
    Give this a read also.

    You can ignore it. There are some permissions errors like that that persist and do no harm.
