I installed this proxy extension in chrome (cant remember what its called) but i couldn't get it to work properly so i removed it. However now i have a hotspot shield banner at the top of my browser and i cant figure out how to remove it!

Applications :: Hotspot Shield Launches Automatically At Startup?

Jan 8, 2010

I have been using Hotspot Shield for a few years now, but the most recent update is for some reason causing it to automatically launch at startup (it has the Hotspot Shield logo in the menu bar).

I have tried looking at the the Startup Items list in System Preferences and looking at the preferences within the application itself. I cannot seem to figure out how to prevent it from launching automatically.

OS X :: Applications Keep Uninstalling Automatically On MBP

Jun 16, 2009

Several applications on my mac keep uninstalling themselves, even whilst In use. For example: I was using firefox, then navigation bar seemed to lock up, so I quit Firefox, then it removed itself from the dock bar - I looked in my applications folder and it was no longer there? Had to download and reinstall to get it working again. Was using photoshop CS4, click 'save for web' and a popup told me it was unable to export as file didn't exist? So I saved my file i was working on, quit photoshop, looked in my applications folder and the entire CS4 package was missing?

To restore this, I opened Time Machine, and found that it had been missing for 3 hours, so restored the Adobe suite (7gb) and it now works again. This has happened to about 8 applications now, cyberduck, carbon copy cloner, adium, appzapper, automater, firefox, adobe? I've ran a disk check on my hard drive and all seems fine, no errors found. I'm also experiencing complete freezes every so often where I'm forced to hold the power button down to turn my mac off and then reboot it - all since this error started happening. I have a Macbook Pro, 17" 2.4ghz, 4gm ram running OS X 10.5.7

Software :: Finding And Uninstalling Applications On MBP

Dec 24, 2009

Can someone tell how to definitively find and remove software that has been installed on my MBP? I've recently tried connecting to my father-in-law's network, but to no avail. The guy from BT did a remote desktop to my MBP via a Citrix app called BT-GoToAssist, which seemed to install a couple of things just prior to running. Can anyone let me know how to find these and get rid of them? I don't like having things on my laptop that I don't use.

The insurance company will give a new macbook to a college at work and he is wondering if he has to uninstall iWork from the old one, to be able to install it on his new macbook. Can he use the same license (iWork came with 3 licenses) or does he loose 1? In other words, if you uninstall iWork con you install it again with the same license.

Applications :: Uninstalling Parallels And Related Stuff?

Jul 30, 2010

So I've installed a few applications here and there that haven't really worked like I wanted them to. I recently installed Parallels and I hated it. I deleted everything I could find but when I search "Parallels" in my finder a bunch of other stuff appears. Is that all related to Parallels, is it okay to delete them all, or not? The only reason it bothers me is because my computer used to shut down literally 5 times faster than it has been since I install Parallels. I think maybe that was the problem and if I delete everything I can find related to Parallels it will shutdown faster.

Applications :: Uninstalling Programs - Not Found On Hard Drive?

Nov 23, 2009

How in the world do I uninstall programs. I downloaded a program called DIVX and it was working for what I downloaded it for but it is nowhere to be found on my harddrive to uninstall it and it is not in my applications list. Does anyone know where it might be on my hard drive? But aside from that alot of programs that are in my applications list do not even have an option to uninstall. I use firefox but if I ever wanted to uninstall it there is no uninstall option, same goes for programs like AIM or Yahoo Messenger.

MacBook Pro :: Unibody MBP - Invisible Shield & Heat ?

Jan 8, 2009

A questions for all of those who have any sort of invisible shield (zagg, bse, bodyguardz etc etc) on their Unibody MBP (or MB for that matter).

Anyone having any issues with the cpu reaching dangerously high temperatures? I heard that the invisible shield is particularly bad because it insulates the aluminum on the mbp, thereby not allowing it to properly dissipate heat. This is one of the things that's preventing me from pulling the trigger on getting one.

OS X :: Zagg Invisible Shield And Snow Leopard

Aug 10, 2009

I just bought a mac and I'm a first time user so I had a few questions regarding the Snow Leopard upgrade and Zagg Invisible Shields.

1. Does the apple retail store install Zagg InvisibleSheilds for MacBook Pro's? If not, does any other store? I tried installing it myself but I ended up frustrated with a crappy looking MBP.

2. I'm trying to upgrade to Snow Leopard through the apple website but after i finish giving the required information, it takes me to the apple store cart, but the problem is that the cart is empty. Am I doing something wrong? I bought my MBP June 23 and I really don't want to buy Snow Leopard if I could just pay the $10 and upgrade it.

Applications :: Unable To Remove Ffmpeg Dependencies / Uninstalling Ffmpeg From Fink?

Jul 16, 2010

I used fink to install ffmpeg so I could convert some flvs I have to MP3s. Wasted at least 2+ hours to compile all the dependencies only to run into some problem where ffmpeg to throw out an error about flv being an unsupported video codec. I know it should have worked as I have done this on *nix systems before. I after fighting with it for an hour or so I broke down and am now using Audacity to rip the audio out (works too).

So I go to uninstall ffmpeg from fink, expecting all the dependencies to go along with it. Except only ffmpeg is removed. dkpg and/or fink will automatically remove/uninstall the dependencies. ATM I am too frustrated to want to waste more time on this, so I come here asking for help. Is there something I am doing wrong for fink and dpkg not to auto-remove the dependencies?

I was able to output all the dependencies to a text file (yay redirect output). IF worse comes to worse, can anyone help me throw together a bash or perl script to go through the text file and "fink purge <dependency>" for me?

Again I normally wouldn't be asking for help without working on the problem myself, but after wasting all that time for the dependencies and ffmpeg to compile, I'm just too angry to think straight.

MacBook Pro :: How To Create A WiFi Hotspot

Sep 5, 2014

Is it possible to create a WiFi-Hotspot from my MacBookPro if it's connected to a WiFi-Network? The reason why I'm asking this question is because in my school you can only connect Laptops to the WiFi. So I thought, I could create a Hotspot from my Mac to connect my iPhone to the Internet/Mac-Hotspot.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Personal Hotspot On IPhone 4s Not Working Via USB Cable

Apr 24, 2012

In the last couple of weeks, I have not been able to use the Personal Hotspot on my iPhone 4s via the USB/sync cable to either of two 2011 Macs, both running the latest version of Lion, with all relevant software updated, including Flashback removal & Java updates. The connection via Bluetooth & wi-fi is unaffected. 

Opening the Network System Preference pane, the connection is shown as iPhone USB, but it is not connected, even with all other internet access methods either deactivated or disconnected. 

This issue is related to Lion, as the G4 & G5 PPC Macs running 10.5.8 which I either use or administer are not affected by this problem. The iPhone is running on iOS 5.1 and is not jailbroken. 

Is it possible that the Flashback/Java issues and Apple's interpretation of their prevention/removal has affected this aspect of internet access via Personal Hotspot?

MacBook Pro :: Internet Connection Stops Working Connected To Wifi Hotspot?

May 9, 2012

I use a 4G Galaxy Nexus to broadcast a private WPA2 network.  The 4G signal is always strong, and I've verified that the internet is active on the broadcasting device, and that other non-Apple devices maintain a solid connection.  However my macbook pro does not lose the network connection, the internet stops working only on the macbook pro and I must "turn Wifi Off" and back on using the top right menu icon in order for the internet connection to resume working on the laptop. It will stop working every 5-10 minutes.

OS X :: Uninstalling Programs On Mac?

Sep 6, 2005

I've just switched over from XP and have been problems with uninstalling programs off the Mac (osx tiger). In XP there would normally be a control panel which would show a list of programs on your computer which you could either modify or uninstall. There doesn't appear to be one in mac osx so I decided to drag the file from the applications folder to the trash. It appeared as though everything was fine until I ran a search in spotlight to still find some of the files still on my computer. I was uninstalling Limewire if this helps. I would like to rid my computer of everything associated to this program.
