Machine: MacBook Pro, new as of 11/2010; 8 gigs RAM
Operating system: 10.6.5
I am down to one last vestige of removing the Memeo software that comes shipped with the WD hard drive (external, Western Digital MyBook Essential, USB 2) and I need help.
I now have 8 hours into trying to remove all of the Memeo software installed when I added the My Book Essential USB 2 external drive. I have spent many hours searching the web, in chat rooms, and have gotten close. I have done the following:
- hooked the drive back up, run Uninstall as provided by WD
- erased files in directories that apparently the uninstall does not delete, according to chat chatter
But one process remains that I can’t eliminate.
I use two Mac utilities to monitor this situation: Activity Monitor and Console Messages. I can see from my Activity Monitor, that the WD/Memeo processes are no longer running. That is a huge step forward. However, I can see from the Console messages that something by Memeo is TRYING to run. I see the same three messages in loop, over and over, happening thousands of times a day:
11/28/10 11:10:06 PM com.apple.launchd (com.memeo.WDMemeod) Throttling respawn: Will start in 10 seconds
11/28/10 11:10:16 PM com.apple.launchd (com.memeo.WDMemeod) posix_spawn("/Library/Application Support/Memeo/WD Anywhere Backup/Daemons/WDMemeod", …): No such file or directory
11/28/10 11:10:16 PM com.apple.launchd (com.memeo.WDMemeod) Exited with exit code: 1
How do I shut down this process??? Where is the file that is making this happen??
