    Hi, I refuse to use it, but...

     

    Have you looked through Pondini's extensive TM help site?

     

    http://Pondini.org/TM/FAQ.html

    http://pondini.org/TM/Troubleshooting.html

     

    Can't imaging something not being covered there.

    Open Console in Utilities & see if there are any clues or repeating messages when trying to open it.

    Do you still have a MobileM eprefpane in System Preferences, if so remove the login info there & reboot.

    Signing out should be sufficient: don't try to remove the actul preference pane (never tamper with things which are part of the System).

     

    If you are still having problems, go to (user)/Library/Preferences/ByHost and remove all .plist files beginning with com.apple.DotMac or com.apple.idisk (depending on what your System is there may not be a ByHost folder, so just in the Preferences folder). Then reboot.

    Hmmm,same error here, which implied deeper problems...

    Outside of reinstalling the OS, I don't know what recommend other than a good reliable Backup App.
