Did that annoy you? Well, it annoys me to constantly see this in my system.log. I would like to understand what is going on and why this is happening. What do these messages mean?

I have an iMac (obviously) and its pretty new. I don't have a lot of programs on my Mac. Regardless of what is installed (Avast was the first thing I installed and I have SecureLine VPN as well) this message has been a constant. I have tried searching the internet in general and the Avast forum but no luck. Nothing appears to be a match to help me understand what the problem is.

Can anyone help?

I'd appreciate it. Thanks.
