Yes, I can make an exception to Apple, and at that moment I am able to run Tex Live Utility. But the next time everything starts all over again.

>> Howdy,
>> Open the folder that contains the TeX Live Utility (TLU) application. Ctl-Click (or Right-Click) the application icon and choose the Open item in the Contextual Menu. The message you now get has an option to Open the application. After choosing that option TLU will open and then open normally from then on.

I don't understand... are you copying the TLU application to /Applications/TeX and opening it from there? Once it's copied you should be able to  eject the dmg and remove the .dmg file.

Good Luck,
