    Exclamation TechTool Pro 5 ghost alerts
    I keep getting ghost alerts from techtool pro 5 even though I have erased all traces of it. Not one daemon or plugin or preference pane of it is left an I continue to get alerts. Any ideas?

    Possibly someone here is familiar with it to provide help.

    In the meanwhile, I'd suggest you head to their forum.

    I have been to their forums, no help there. In fact they don;t really have forums, just an FAQ. I even read PDFs [of email exchanges] of customers with the same issue and all they gave them were half baked responses on getting rid of daemons and the preference file. I've used clean my mac, AppZapper, and countless other programs to hunt down and delete all of this program's files and none of them have been able to remove the alerts!

    The link above is a direct link to their TTP5 forum.

    As to how much help thry are, don't have a clue. And, I've never even considered buying their software.

    Oh, sorry missed than, thanks! Got my hands on the .dmg though [has an uninstaller] should fix the problem.

    Sounds like another 'drag it to the trash and that gets rid of it on a Mac' story there somewhere. if software comes with an uninstaller, use that each and every time or you are asking for trouble.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
