Programs needing internet will not launch

Post by dneloso » Tue Apr 10, 2018 1:09 pm

I am using mint 18 on an HP desktop. After a shutdown I turned the computer on
And got a popup saying a plugin was trying to start to many times and would be
removed. Stupidly I said OK. Since then any program that needs access to internet
will not launch. I have no idea what plugin was removed or how to get it back. I have
Wicd network manager which connects to the internet but no use without a program
To use it. Very grateful for any for any help I can get. Thank you David Nelson

Turns out an update caused the problem. Removed virtualbox-guest and all is well.
Thanks to everyone who looked at or commented on my post. David
