    Upon starup, OS X is looking to start uninstalled software
    Basically, I installed PDAnet last week, didn't like it and used App Cleaner to delete it totally. However, whenever I boot up I get the message as seen in the attached screen shot. I've gone into security preferences, and everywhere else I could think of to see where it's coming from but am stumped.

    What to do?

    Thanks!

    Thanks to both of you gents. There was indeed a lil' PDA bugger hiding out in that folder. Tis' gone now, and I'll reboot to check later on.

    BTW MacsWork.. what is that app I'm looking at on your screen shot?
