    "Cocktail" is a system modification with components that run all the time, whether you use it or not.

    I uninstalled it (in accordance with its own uninstall procedures) when you first mentioned it...along with Memory Clean. 

     

    If Evernote works properly when in my account Safe Mode and also in a new user account (with only Evernote installed)...where else can I look for the culprit here?  Thanks.

    You haven't removed "Cocktail."

  • 20. Re: This problem defies all logic
    Larry McJunkin Level 1 Level 1 (15 points)

    I removed Cocktail by using the uninstall menu item in the app itself.  According to the Cocktail website...that's the only way to remove all of it.  It's not in the Application folder nor can Finder find any trace of it in even hidden folders.  Where do you see "Cocktail" in the last post of "Step 3 results"?

    com.maintain.ShowUserLibraryDirectory

     

    You must, as I wrote earlier, reboot to complete the removal of a system modification. If that item is still present after you do so, then the uninstaller doesn't work.

    I've rebooted several times since I uninstalled it.  I'll try reinstalling and uninstalling with AppCleaner to see if it goes away. 

     

    BTW, since Bartender wasn't the offending app, I reinstalled it.  I simply can't live with all the crap on the Menu Bar...and in an order I don't like.  It gets rave reviews everywhere and no one has ever reported a problem with it.

     

    I'll post back when I have (hopefully completely removed Cocktail.

    "AppCleaner" is yet another useless crapware "utility."

     

    Open the folder /Library/LaunchAgents and remove everything in it with a name starting in "com.maintain." Then log out and log back in.

  • 24. Re: This problem defies all logic
    Larry McJunkin Level 1 Level 1 (15 points)

    There was only one (com.maintain.Restart.plist) and it contained one reference to "Cocktail".  I deleted the file, logged out then back in.  Evernote still doesn't work.

    Linc, if this ultimately can't be fixed, instead of a complete wipe/reinstall of ML, what about creating a new user, installing all the apps I need that aren't aready installed/available for any user, moving all my files from Documents, Dropbox, etc., then killing the old user (and all files).  Finally, I could rename my new user account short name with guidance from: https://discussions.apple.com/docs/DOC-3872

    Apart from your login items and launch agents, there's nothing in your home folder that could possibly be different in safe versus "unsafe" mode. In safe mode, the operating system itself runs with reduced functionality. If there is some way that could affect Evernote in the way you describe, only the developer would know (and even he may not know.)

     

    What I would do in your place is to wipe out the Evernote configuration completely. Again, only the developer can tell you how to do that. Test it with the default settings, then make changes cautiously to avoid recreating the problem. That's all I can do to help you with software I've never used. I only vaguely know what it is.

  • 27. Re: This problem defies all logic

    Obtaining support for Evernote is worse than from Google...it's just not going to happen.n  Their idiotic advice is to simply drag Evernote to the trash...and even the app deletion apps you don't like find six or seven files for Evernote.  While the home folder may not contain anything different between safe and normal, I wonder why the home folder works fine when it's a new home folder for a new user?  That sort of counters the theory that it's the same both ways.

     

    In any event, thanks for your help.  I'm either going to build a new user folder, then rename the old one immediately so I can rename the new one with my old user name before populating it....or just rebuild the system completely.  The latter is easy to do...but getting everything configured correctly takes several days.  Thanks again, Linc.

    I just tried to download Evernote, it started asking me to check my internet connection, over and over.  I decided this was not a good application for, started trying to remove it, took a while, it's in the trash, won't empty for some of the same reasons mentioned in prior posts, some aspect is being used.  Can't find them on the computer to delete, and the icon is still in the tool bar.

     

    Any help for people who are not develper types?  Simple steps.  I did find things in the Library to remove, still can't empty trash.
