I am having trouble with HWmonitor. I keep getting a warning
The computer keeps asking for this, "HWMonitor is trying to install a new helper tool." This happens about every five minutes. What is this? I deinstalled HWMonitor and then re-installed it with Multibeast and I am still getting "request". Thank you for your help.

If you want HMMonitor to load on boot you need to install the Helper app.

Closed, not a bug.

I do understand that but having the pop-up asking me if I want to load a helper, inputting my password and then 5 minute later getting the same pop-up every 5 minutes is not acceptable. As far as closed is concerned, your response has not helped the problem. If you can, please help. Thank you.

This is a problem that has surfaced several times in the past.
Search for "install a new helper tool" for details and possible solutions.
It is not a MultiBeast bug.

I found this, "Navigate to ~/Library/Application Support/HWMonitor and delete Configuration.xml. Restart and HWMonitor will re-write it's vanilla config file. I just did this and it worked perfectly."
Does this make sense?

This solve the problem:
