    Have you got an Epson printer, or had one - it might just be an old print job that is always trying to print

    Try going to System Preferences, printers and delete the printer

    if it persists that app is at

    I had tried deleting the printer which I used to own before i posted this message. Unfortunately it didn't help. I tried looking in the location and the EPW directory does not exist. I thought it might be hidden so i tried deleting it using the terminal and the terminal doesn't think it exists either. I think thats the problem. Something is trying to open that directory but it doesn't exist. Any idea how i can stop it from trying to open it?
