Well of course, because Apple, ha, forget that story.

The orphan files are usually preference files in your Library/Preferences folder and perhaps some others in your Library/Application Support folder. I think that is the name. I'm, unfortunately, not at a Mac right now.

These possible orphans do not run, they are just support files, so all they do is take up a little bit of room.

It is possible some applications use the system locations for those files, but rare.
