Desktop pic changes every time I restart the MAC since the new OIS update

Anybody can help with?

ewaller, thank you for your response and interest! at this moment i'm so happy seeing the correct hour on the screen that all that i want is enyoi it!!!
I live in Barcelona so, teorically my UTC is UTC + 2. During all this time with UTC the time has been changing every time i started the computer but without following a pattern. So one day the time was 30 min. ahead the real time, another day 2 hours before and so on...  a bit crazy!
I have Windows installed on another partition, but I rarely started it.

FYI.  You can prepend LC_ALL=C to a command to force English output.  Example:
LC_ALL=C hwclock --debug
Could have saved you some translating
If you are happy with the clock set to localtime, great.  I prefer having it set to UTC for a variety of reasons that have been discussed on these forums that I'll not repeat here.
The hardware clock is UTC
Your system assumed the clock was set to UTC
Time read from Hardware Clock: 04.22.2012 10:38:11
Hardware Time: 22/04/2012 10:38:11 = 1335091091 seconds after 1969
Sun April 22 2012 12:38:11 CEST -0.381791 seconds
The system shows your time as being two hours ahead of UTC.  UTC does not have summer/winter time adjustments.  I assume that you are one hour ahead of UTC, plus an extra hour of adjustment for summer.
The post I took this from was posted at 01:01:56 PDT (UTC-7).  What time (your local time) did you make that post?
If it took you 20 minutes for the translation your hardware clock at the time would have been about 11:01.  That is  10 hours ahead of me.
I am confused, because I expected it to be about 9.  If things are working right, it should be 7.
Anyway, it would appear if the change you made fixed things then your hardware clock was not set to UTC.  If you want to pursue this, I am glad to help.  If not, I am sure we will be talking about clock settings this fall

  • Every time I turn my mac off, the desktop background changes. It always returns to the same picture, which was the second or third thing I changed my desktop to after getting my mac.

    Every time I turn my mac off, the desktop background changes. It always returns to the same picture, which was the second or third thing I changed my desktop to after getting my mac. I have background switching unchecked in my preferences, and I have never selected it as an option. Also, when I go to my preferences, it will show the icon of the picture I changed it to, even though the desktop itself has switched back.

    I would start with some basic troubleshooting.

  • Every time I restart my mac air some applications like calendar and Microsoft word automatically starts, how can I stop such applications from starting when ever I restart my mac

    Every time I restart my mac air some applications like calendar and Microsoft word automatically starts, how can I stop such applications from starting when ever I restart my mac?

    One thing to check:  when shutting down or restarting, there is a checkbox in the shutdown/restart dialog which asks whether you want currently open applications to open at startup.

  • Asked to Sign-in to iCloud every time I start my Mac since upgrading to Yosemite

    Since upgrading to Yosemite every time I start my computer it goes through the normal grey screen stage and then I get to login as normal. After logging in I then get asked to sign-in to iCloud. I sign-in successfully and agree to the terms and conditions, choose to upgrade to iCloudDrive and then it says setting up my Mac, which takes about 20 seconds before the desktop displays. I'd expect this behaviour on the first reboot after installing Yosemite but it's asking me to sign-in to iCloud every time I restart and taking me through all these steps!
    I'm on iMac, Late 2012, 2.9 GHz Intel Core i5, 8GB

    Just to say I never found a solution to this after hours of looking for answers and trying different things. I finally decided to take the plunge and reformat my hard drive and reinstall OS X Yosemite and now is all good on this front.

  • Every time I restart my Mac, I lose Firefox and have to re-install it.

    I recently purchased my first Mac Book Pro (the 15 inch base model, if it matters) and shortly after tried to install Firefox. I installed it no problem, however, whenever I restart my Mac, it is completely gone. Not in Finder/Applications. I can't seem to figure out what is going on. Help!

    Make sure that Firefox gets installed properly.
    Open the Firefox disk image (DMG) file and drag the Firefox program to the application folder on your hard drive.<br />
    You shouldn't double-click the Firefox application to run it from the disk image, but drag it out of the DMG folder instead.

  • After typing a sudo command on terminal how do you save it so you dont have to keep giving that same command every time I restart my mac??

    I have a 45mb/s internet at home and my youtube videos load extremely slow, after reading many blogs and empting my cache cleaning my history I stumble across a post that told me i had to block two IP's on the terminal using this two commands: " sudo ipfw add reject src-ip 173.194.55.0/24 in" and "sudo ipfw add reject src-ip 206.111.0.0/16 in" that it should help. After I did that and restarted the mac those commads are undone. Is there a way to save thos commands tipped in the terminal??

    Open the AppleScript Editor in the /Applications/Utilities/ folder and paste in the following:
    set thepass to text returned of (display dialog "Your administrator password is needed." default answer "" buttons {"Cancel", "OK"} default button "OK")
    do shell script "ipfw add reject src-ip 173.194.55.0/24 in" password thepass with administrator privileges
    do shell script "ipfw add reject src-ip 206.111.0.0/16 in" password thepass with administrator privileges
    Save it as an application and add it to the list of login items for your user account in the Users & Groups pane of System Preferences.

  • Has anyone experienced lagging when typing on the mac since the mountain lion os x update?

    hey everyone,
    i'm a newbie to this kind of stuff but just curious if anyone has experienced any kind of lag when typing since the mountain lion update. I find then whenever i'm typing it doesn't show up and as soon as i start deleting my sentence it will appear again.
    also, when scrolling over a highlighted word, your typical menu box will drop down. As soon as it drops down it leaves a big white blank where it was and cuts out everything that was in its path.
    please let me know if this is something that can be fixed or if apple's working on something to amend the issue. thanks everyone!

  • I upgraded to os X and when I start my macbook pro it loads ms word, firefox, neatworks, I have to close out those systems every time I restart my mac.

    how do I stop programs from opening at startup

    When you shut down, uncheck the window to reopen applications. If you update to 10.7.4, then it should remain unchecked each time you shutdown. In previous versions of the OS, you will have to uncheck the window each time you shut down or restart.
    You might check your User Account login items for other applications you may not want as startup items if you have any there.

  • I was infected by a virus and this changed proxy config to 127.0.0.1:64727, i removed the virus, but every time i start firefox i find the proxy configuration made by the virus.is there any config file i can change ?

    I was infected by a virus (i can't remember the virus name). Antivirus removed it, but i think it changed some config file on FF, 'cause every time i try to restart it , i find it configured to use proxy 127.0.0.1:64727. I change every time the config, i also tried to change the config on the about:config and set network.proxy.type 5 , no port and no network proxy (so it's all on default) . I changed the config on the gui, i removed the config from windows registry ( IE and chrome start normally, with no proxy), but every time i restart FF i find the proxy config there. How can i fix it ?

    I had the same problem.
    Solution
    '''Clear Virus First'''
    -clear virus using either anti-virus or manually going into task manager and figuring out which processes are bad.
    -If the manual way, go through each process in task manager and right click to "open file location". Depending on where it is located and the name of the process, you can google the process name online to see if it is bad.
    -Delete the bad process file and as added security, create a folder using the name of the process so the file can't be recreated later. (example: If I had a virus "3dcr.exe" in folder c:\user, then delete "3dcr.exe" and create a new folder c:\user\3dcr.exe\ )
    '''Fix Proxy Settings'''
    -If your browser points an proxy server and you can't change the settings because every restart of firefox returns the settings back (even after changing in about:config or prefs.js or options>advanced>network>settings). The answer is to uninstall firefox with all its user preferences and the reinstall it.
    *I know it is a bit brute force, but it was the only method I found to work. Just be sure to save your bookmarks first.

  • Changes made on firefox arent registered and need to change again every time firefox restarts.

    Since I installed firefox on my new PC nothing seems to register. Every time I start it, it wants to give me a tour like the first time I installed it. Fond size on same pages change every time I open them. Change of the home page doesn't register, meaning after I change it on the options it will not remember it next time I restart the program.
    On top of that, even though its shows that I am signed it for syncing, it actually does not sync anything from my older PC.

    It could be the work of one of your add-ons, or even add / mal-ware.
    Look thru your add-ons list and make sure you know what each one is
    and what it does.
    Some added toolbar and anti-virus add-ons are known to cause Firefox issues.
    Open the '''Add-ons Manager <Control><Shift> A''' and '''disable All of them.'''
    Also, check the programs that are on your computer
    '''Windows:''' Start > Control Panel > Uninstall Programs.
    '''Mac:''' Open the "Applications" folder.
    '''Linux:''' Check your user manual.
    Go thru the list. If you find something that you don't
    know what it is, use a web search.

  • Every time i wake my mac i get This computer's local hostname "D-360.local" is already in use on this network. The name has been changed to "D-444.local".

    error message that my local host name is in use and the system generates a new one every time I wake my mac the error mssg reads This computer’s local hostname “D-360.local” is already in use on this network. The name has been changed to “D-444.local”.

    There are several possible causes for this behavior.
    1. Two (or more) computers on the local network have the same Bonjour name, such as "X's-MacBook-Pro.local". Resolve the name conflict by renaming one or more of them in the Sharing preference pane.
    2. You have two simultaneous connections to the same local network: probably Ethernet and Wi-Fi. If applicable, disconnect the Ethernet cable or turn off Wi-Fi.
    3. A Mac wakes from sleep due to network traffic. This is a bug in OS X that may only affect some models.
    4. A device that gets its network address from the router wakes from sleep, and the address it was using before has been assigned to another device.
    5. A third-party wireless router has incompatible settings or firmware. In that case, refer to the manufacturer or ISP for support. Restarting the router may help, temporarily.

  • How do I make a web page that changes every time the user refreshes it? Is it possible in Muse?

    Hi, i'd like to make quite a simple website where the main text in the centre of the page changes every time the user refreshes the page in their browser. I assume i'll have to make one master, and multiple pages that are all the same except for the changes in the text, but i'm not sure how to make it so that every refresh directs to a different page and not just the home page? Is this even possible in Muse?
    This is an example of what i'm going for: :: procatinator ::
    Thanks!

    You can't do it with Muse alone. Would probably be fairly simple to do with a bit of Javascript. Check the widget directory as it is possible someone has made a widget for random content. If not, maybe I will make one this weekend. ;-)
