Just got a new iMac and was trying out some programs. I installed iAlertU and decided I didn't want it and deleted it with Appcleaner. Last night I noticed it was still listed in location services in the security section of System Preferences.

1. Why is it there and how can I delete it?
2. If I can't delete it is it harmful to let it remain there?

Did iAlertU come with an installer package or did you just drag it into Applications to install it?

Check you done all of these:
1. Delete iAlertU file
2. Delete
~/Library/Preferences/com.slappingturtle.iAlertU.plist
3. Delete ~/Library/Application Support/iAlertU
4. Delete ~/iAlertU_*.jpg (if any exist)
5. Remove iAlertU from the login items if needed.

I made sure last night that these files were indeed gone. I just wonder how it can show up with no remaining files?

That list shows apps that have permission. Even though you don't have it installed the permission remains. Just remove it.

Uncheck it? I did that. I wanted to remove it from the list. So I guess it is not hurting anything?

Thanks
