Uninstall Drive Genius 5 Mac

AppCleaner & Uninstaller. If you only need to uninstall apps on Mac, AppCleaner is a good pick. AppCleaner only removes applications, plugins, and widgets, which are again, small apps. AppCleaner works in a familiar drag & drop mode. Its interface is also clean and easy to understand for a newbie. The biggest new feature added by Drive Genius 5 is the ability to perform near real-time and manual malware scans on storage devices connected to your computer. Our existing DrivePulse utility that automatically monitors the health of your hard drives now also monitors downloaded files for potential malware threats.

To review, I already deleted these folders and files:

/Library/Application Support/DriveGenius

/Applications/Drive Genius 3.app

/Users/Library/Application Support/DriveGenius

/Users/Library/Preferences/com.prosofteng.DriveGenius2.plist

/Users/Library/Preferences/com.prosofteng.DGAgent.plist


I found this file and tried to remove it:

Driver Genius Professional

/Users/jimp/Library/LaunchAgents/com.prosofteng.DGMonitor.plist


Dragging the file to the trash did not work. Trying to remove the file via the Terminal 'rm' command did not work. Even doing

'sudo rm com.prosofteng.DGMonitor.plist' would not work, resulting in the message:

'rm: com.prosofteng.DGMonitor.plist: Operation not permitted' and the file was still there.


I used COMMAND-I to change the file permission to READ AND WRITE and then used the VI editor in Terminal to 'comment out' every line of the file by adding a '#' at the start of each line. Then I wrote out the file.


I still could not remove the file---I don't know why--- but I suppose it is now inert and can't do anything.


Drive

Upon restarting, the Console log no longer shows those 'every-10-seconds' errors.

I assume my problem is solved?

I have yet to determine whether the Mac Pro will go to sleep as it used to do.


Now I need to remember to NEVER TRY INSTALLING DRIVE GENIUS or other dangerous applications again.

I hope these notes are of some value to other Mac 10.6.8 users out there.
