    Uninstall Timbuktu?
    After following these instructions from Tumbuktu's own website: Timbuktu Pro for Macintosh (OS X) FAQs I'm still getting a series of messages in my Console:

    12/24/09 9:40:21 AM com.apple.launchd.peruser.502[862] (com.netopia.timbuktu.pro.host[1229]) posix_spawn("/Applications/Timbuktu Pro/Timbuktu Pro.app/Contents/SharedSupport/Timbuktu Host.app/Contents/MacOS/Timbuktu Host", ...): No such file or directory
    12/24/09 9:40:21 AM com.apple.launchd.peruser.502[862] (com.netopia.timbuktu.pro.host[1229]) Exited with exit code: 1
    12/24/09 9:40:21 AM com.apple.launchd.peruser.502[862] (com.netopia.timbuktu.pro.host) Throttling respawn: Will start in 10 seconds

    Any suggestions?

    Re-boot would be first.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    Yup, that's part of the instructions. Still getting the console messages. Trying to get phone support from Netopia.

    Specs:
    iMac, and Macbook Pro
    I'd go to Activities Monitor and Stop anything related to Timbuktu.

    Then I'd run EasyFind set to find everything, including hidden and system files and folders, looking for anything related to Timbuktu, and delete it all.

    Finally got a human at Netopia tech support. They couldn't help but mentioned that Skype will attach somehow to Timbuktu and will look for it if it's gone.

    I don't know, but I found another thread at Apple Discussions. Deleting /Library/LaunchAgents/com.netopia.timbuktu.pro.host.plist, emptying trash and restarting seems to have done the trick.

    PS: Wow, VegasGeorge, EasyFind rocks! There were still some Timbuktu plists and a log, so got rid of them.
