This answer was rated:

After loading lion, I am now getting pop-ups saying NotificationExec is no longer supported. I cannot find what this relates to. Please tell me how to get this pop up to stop.
Navigate to: XXXXX XXXXX – you should see in that folder
Go to Force Quit (Apple menu) and make sure there aren’t any instances of the popup hanging out
Wait for the popup and click: “Not Now”
Then trash:
You may have to enter your admin password XXXXX you can change Finder
Empty trash and resume life!

OK I cant get access to the computer now becasue it's off line. So I will try this later. Do I approve now, or wait until I get on the computer?
Either way you can come back here.

So if I approve now, and I still have an issue, I can get with you tonight or tomorrow without having to pay again? Correct?

I only looked in both. Only thing that cones up is a read me file.
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Yes both
So you went to Macintosh HD/Library/Driver Support/ – you don't see in that folder?

Do you have a Maxtor One Touch drive?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Yesbut I can’t find it either!
Go to System Preferences / Users & Groups / choose your name and go to Login Items if you see it there select it and hit the minus sign, then see if it is in Applications folder and trash it there too.
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
not there
What about Applications?

Its not anywhere including trash
Ok look in both Libraries / Startup Items
