Default Terminal App Opening Randomly? Thank Avid's Application Manager

https://origin-discussions-us.apple....art=0&tstart=0

If you're noticing that Terminal opens randomly on your Mac for no reason and you've run BitDefender and other virus checkers to no avail, look no further than Avid's Application Manager, which does this.

Really wish the developer team would check their work before submitting out in the wild, but that would take time and resources...

Avid - please fix this or just kill the Application Manager. You only get so many tries to get a simple app right.

I did wonder what was causing this! Thanks for the info.

Overall, I quite like the app manager, so don't plan on removing it, but that's definitely something that should be fixed.

John - thanks and totally aware I could delete the app, but would like Avid to fix the app and test before releasing going forward. Not asking much.

It's been badly designed and broken since release. I am not confident that whoever Avid outsourced this development work to has any clue what they are doing. I don't want anything here. Avid should leave it as is for all I care. As long as users can easily remove it.

Yes, this happens here too, randomly.

I think it must have something to do with automatic installs, because once I turned that off Terminal stopped poppihg up

hi Ned, this does not uninstall the App ... just stops it from launching on startup / restart .. this way the terminal should not come up and you can still use the App Mn if you like .. Q; if you toss the Launch agent file does the Terminal still come up when you launch App Man manually ???

cheers john
