    I keep getting this "Choose Application/ Where is GrowlHelperApp?" window popping up intermittently. It started after playing around in Automator & Keyboard Maestro. How do I get rid of it?

    Do you have Growl installed or installed a program lately that wants to use Growl?

    Yes, I do have Growl Installed; I've installed several programs within the previous week. So, I should select the Growl Helper?

    That window appears whenever an Applescript is loaded, and the System can't find an App which the script tells to do something: Tell blocks.
    One of your Automator or Keyboard maestro scripts is trying to use "GrowlHelperApp"
    If you don't have:
    either install it and select it in the dialog window, or find and eliminate the Applescript that is calling it.

    I selected Growl from the list of applications and discovered an app called "Synkron" was asking for the path to GrowlHelperApp. I'm not sure what would cause this behavior. Synkron normally sits in the menu bar and backs up a handful of files on an hourly basis, which kind of explains the frequency of the at which the input box appeared. Seems to be resolved for the time being.Thanks again.

    Seems to be, the second I selected Growl, I got several Growl notifications from Synkron. I haven't seen the input box since.
