Some macOS users are experiencing a problem where their computer constantly receives the “RP2 Quit Unexpectedly” popup. It gets annoying as this message can suddenly occur on your Mac every few minutes.
Two options are available: “Ok” and “Reopen RP2”. It doesn’t matter which option is selected, the RP2 popup will re-appear again.
In this tutorial, I will show you how to fix the annoying RP2 Quit Unexpectedly error on your Mac.
Remove RP2 from your Library folder
One of the easiest way to get rid of the RP2 popup error on your Mac is to remove its content from your Mac’s Library folder.
Step 1: Press Cmd+Shift+G to open the Finder window.

Another suggestion is to search your computer for any application named RP2. If you can’t remember installing it or don’t know what it is, it might be malware.
