A script to install all required Software Updates
Authored by: kielas on Oct 07, '08 12:28:12AM
I think I was able to execute the script, but now my login box is permanently entiteled "Software updates are currently being installed on this computer. Please do not attempt to log in until this message is gone." How do I remove what became a nag?

A script to install all required Software Updates

Run this command in Terminal:

sudo defaults delete /Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginwindow LoginwindowText

That is part of the cleanup the script does when there are no updates left, not sure why it didn't happen on your machine. I tested this extensively while developing it and never had that problem.
