Apple Error Message persistent under Mavericks : SafariDAVClient quit

Hello Experts,

First, my system:

Model: iMac 21.5, Mid 2011
Processor  2.7 GHz Intel Core i5
Memory  4 GB 1333 MHz DDR3
Graphics  AMD Radeon HD 6770M 512 MB
Software  Mac OS X Ver. 10.9.1 (Mavericks

Since moving to Mavericks and Safari 7, my iMac has been persistently throwing the following Error Message at me :"SafariDAVClient quit." [ Pls see attached clip]. It can occur when using Safari, but just as often when not using Safari! It seems to have no effect on my productivity,, nothing slows down, nothing crashes….mainly just a visual nuisance.Still, there must be something wrong.

Any suggestions?

With Safari open, find this folder and drag it to desktop :

User/library/Preferences/com.apple.iCloudHelper.

Quit Safari. Attempt to open iCloudPreferences again. If it opens, de-select "Safari."

Launch Safari and problem is fixed, no more annoying "SafariDAVClient quit" Error!


Yay!

If all is OK, drag that isolated folder to Trash.

Alternatively, if you need bookmark synching:

- Quit Safari
 
- Turn off bookmark syncing in the iCloud System Preference pane (under the Apple Menu)
 
- Select the Finder, under the GO menu, select "Go to Folder..."
 
- Enter in "~/Library/ " (no quotes, first character is a tilde)
 
- Renamed the files "Bookmarks.plist" and "Bookmarks.sprt" to "Bookmarks-old.plist" and "Bookmark-old.sprt"
(.sprt appears to be a legacy file on my system not being used anymore, so you may not have it.)
 
- Go back into the Systems Preferences and turn on iCloud Bookmark settings
 
- Start Safari, give it some time to resync your bookmarks from the cloud.

strung,

Thanks for all that. However, I've posted  a second question here today that complicates things, here: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Apple/Operating_Systems/Q_28348264.html - my iCloud Pref Pane won't open up!

Any other ideas?

Experts strangely gave little response to my questions, so I found answer on my own, surfing the web.
