    "It hides & keeps reappearing after deleting the program"

    June 5, 2009  |   By shoilc


    I can't think of anything.


    It wasn't what I wanted so I deleted it, but twice since it has popped up telling me to back up where it appeared again in Application and System Preferences. Then I have to Restart in order to empty it out of the trash because it is still running.


    One you delete a program it should stay deleted. I can't find out where whatever it is that keeps reinstalling it is located. Each time, Spotlight shows me it is in Applications and System Preferenes only. You also have to look in Home-Library-Preferences and Library-Application-Support. Even that didn't get rid of it.

    I guess I did it wrong. Instead of dragging BackBlaze to the trash you have to uninstall with the BackBlaze uninstaller which, since I never saw it and I didn't have it anymore, I downloaded from its web site. If that worked I shouldn't have a problem any more. In that case, I'll give it a much better rating.
