Steve Herrod :

Hi, I'll be happy to help with this issue

Steve Herrod :

You've mentioned that you are using a Mac but most of the utilities to remove eblaster are based on Windows

Steve Herrod :

however, you can use a utility like littlesnitch to see what is happening exactly on the system

Steve Herrod :

and this should help show whether there is any eblaster process running

Steve Herrod :

Let me know

Steve Herrod :

Cheers

Steve Herrod :

Reviewing the new information now

Steve Herrod :

ok, are you able to go to Macintosh HD-->Applications-->Utilities-->Terminal

Steve Herrod :

and once that loads up type the following

Steve Herrod :

cat /Library/Preferences/.msptrpref

Steve Herrod :

that should show the e-mail address of whoever installed the software, as it looks like it is installed

Steve Herrod :

once you have checked that you need to remove these files

Steve Herrod :

/Library/Preferences/.msptrpref
/Library/Preferences/sptrapp prefs
/Library/Preferences/.abcd
/Library/startupitems/LiloDS
/Library/startupitems/DriverSPD
/Library/startupitems/SystemStart
/Library/startupitems/SystemStartState
/Library/startupitems/StartupParameters.plist

Steve Herrod :

and that should complete the removal

Steve Herrod :

let me know

Steve Herrod :

Cheers

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
