Seven of my addons have a warning symbol adjacent to them in the Curse Client that reads, "(addon name) appears to have been modified and no long matches our database"
ArkInventory, Auctioneer, Deadly Boss Mods, NeedToKnow, Omen Threat Meter, Recount and X-Perl Unitframes.
Why would this happen? And what do I do to correct the issue. I might also add I no longer have a couple of WOW's functions, for example I no longer see the LFR or Dungeon eye on my minimap and I must disable all my addons to play the carnival games at the Darkmoon Faire because the action bar does not change from my normal action bar, Bartender 4, to the action bar specific to each individual game. I disable all the addons because I do not know which addon is interferring with these functions.
This is caused by using another addon updater on the same addon you update with the Curse Client. For example, say you have Bartender4 installed, and then you checked for updates using WowInterface's Minion updater. The Curse Client would in turn give you the error mentioned because Minion puts a tiny file into every addon folder it updates. The file is benign and causes no damage, but the CC sees the folder as altered from Curse's DB.

Back to WoW on Llane in Knights of the Storm, Alliance (Myrroddin, Jelia, BadAsh, Vanhoeffen)
myrroddin, could you please point me in the right direction to find the file that Minion puts in addons it updates?
I use several addons that are hosted on both Curse.com and WoWInterface.com, but can't seem to find any files that Minion leaves behind. The only time I've ever seen that notice is after I changed a bit of code in an addon to make it work with something Blizzard changed. The next time I opened the Client to update my addons that notice appeared.
