Hi all,

Well when I first got my MBP I figured hey why not, and ran the folding team software for a little while, but I now live on campus, and accordingly have only a 4gb monthly download limit.. So I dragged the folding software to the trash, and it was gone.

Today, (about 2 weeks later i think), my MBP fans turned on after i restarted and it got very hot. Curious, I find out this is because there were 4 "fahcore_a1.exe" processes running.. well, i forced quit 1 of them, and all 4 disappeared, and almost immediately my mbp fan started ramping down.

Question: Why wasn't the application removed when I dragged it to the trash? Why has it only started today after having done so, and how do I remove it for the future? (In no time flat it used about 60mb of my download limit).

Thanks.

Have you tried a spotlight search for anything related to the Folding Team software, or anything containing "fahcore" in the title?

hey, yeah i did and removed the items that came up (there were 4 that resulted from a "fahcore" spotlight search). But I was still curious as to whether or not this would have completely solved the problem.

Make sure that your CPU usage is lower than when it was running (usually around 90% for me). As long as that's down, then at least it isn't running.
