Mac OS Catalina Dock Problems Resolved with F-Secure Safe Uninstall
I have been having horrible problems with the dock on my MacBook since the install of MacOS Catalina. I have been on the phone with Apple Support multiple times with no resolution. We've tried everything including reinstalling the OS with no fix. I finally noticed that when starting up my MacBook, that whenever the desktop appeared and the status bar icon showed F-Secure Safe was updating - I always had dock problems. When Safe was not updating during the startup process, no problems. I have now completely uninstalled F-Secure Safe and all of my dock problems are magically gone.
These dock problems are very widespread, and I doubt everyone affected is using F-Secure Safe, but it seems that Catalina and F-Secure Safe (and possibly other AV) are not playing well together. I hate to leave my machine unprotected, but it's unusable with F-Secure Safe installed on Catalina. What's the fix for this?
