I'm running the latest version of Leopard, just throwing that out there.

First: I recently bought a 500GB External hard drive that came with its own backup software. I ended up installing it like a retard, and then deleting it. I even formatted the HD so there's nothing of the original software left on it. There is an icon of the application on my menu bar on top of the screen. I know I can go to Activity Monitor and quit the process, but is there a way to block it??

Second: I have some files that I'm not sure how to open. They came in a Video_TS folder. So...can you help me out with that?

Much thanks to those that can help me out

the files in the video ts foldr can be opened by vlc media player (this will open most forms of video files)

as for the icon of the application...i dont seem to understand how it loads when you say that you removed it...maybe you could try & click on the icon & see if there is an option/menu that hav settings that allow you to disable it

<< i can explain it to you...but i can't understand it for you... >>

well, the program is called Memeo LifeAgent. I can right click the icon and it brings up options, but it doesn't matter. When I click on them, nothing happens. It's like I removed everything but that dumb little icon. I hate it! lol

cool...if the icon leads to nowhere...then just go to system preferences...accounts....& then select login items for the account you normally log into...the application will probably be listed there....just remove it from the list...hope this clears it out

I have an idea for the menu bar thing.

I'm taking a guess at it's most likely location. Check in your home folder>library>application support. See if there is a folder there named Memeo LifeAgent or similar. If there is delete it.

if not, then do a system search for ".menu" and find the one that called memeo lifeagent.

Neither Alycia or Rohan's ideas worked. Although, I did find a folder in application support, I deleted it and it still shows up.

In the find window (Press command+F while in finder) go to where it says kind and choose other.. from the drop down menu. Then choose system files from the list. And then set it to include.

Oh, you know what, I just remembered something. Press Command and drag the icon off the menu!

for future uninstalls get apptrap...its a free application that allows you to chose remove all files that may have been installed /created when you drap an application to the trash...
