Browsing through process viewer I noticed that there are entries for [email protected] and [email protected] Since I long ago deleted [email protected], why are these two entries still there? I searched the HD for anything Seti, and couldn't find anything. How do I permanently kill off Seti?

    "Removing [email protected] from your OS X system



    Note: terminal commands are case-sensitive, so be careful of upper and lower case when typing.



    The "[email protected]_Docs" folder contains a shell script which will completely remove [email protected] from your OS X system. To do this:



    (1) Log in as the system administrator.



    (2) In the Applications/Utilities folder, launch the Terminal application.



    (3) Enter "source" and a space. From the Finder, drag the [email protected]_Uninstall_Script file onto the Terminal window. This should complete the "Source" command. Press return.



    (4) Enter "exit" and a return.



    (5) This does not remove the "[email protected]_Docs" folder; you can do this manually by dragging it to the trash.



    OS X Public Beta used a slightly different spelling for the "Application Support" folder; the space between the words was missing under Public beta. With [email protected] for OS X Public Beta, the [email protected] Preferences file and [email protected]_Data folder were in the "ApplicationSupport" folder; for the release version they are in the "Application Support" folder.



    Earlier versions of the Macintosh operating system allowed you to restart your computer while holding down the shift key to disable all system extensions. This was useful if you were unable to boot your computer due to a problem with one of the extensions.



    Mac OS X does not have this feature. While it is very unlikely that [email protected] would prevent you from starting up your computer, you can restart without [email protected] by booting from the CD-ROM which you used to install OS X. Insert the CD into the drive and hold down the "c" key while restarting the computer. You can then run the [email protected]_Uninstall_Script as describe above to completely remove [email protected] from your system."

    This is false.



    Next time you restart your Mac, hold shift and be pleasantly surprised.

    OK, we'll see about that whole shift key thing.
