Hi there--

The GoogleDesktop daemon is hogging my CPU. I've deleted the application, but can't find where the actual daemon is located. I've logged in as Root, looked in the System folder's Library, /private and it's subdirectories.

I've got to get rid of this as it's giving me the Spinning Pizza of Death regularly


MacBook Pro 2.5 Core 2 Duo, Mac OS X (10.5.6), 4Gb RAM

    Open the Activity Monitor in the /Applications/Utilities/ folder, select it, choose Inspect, and look through the items under Open Files and Ports for its location. Alternatively, running the following from the Terminal may reveal its location:

    locate Google

    Thanks for the quick reply - Inspected the process, but didn't see any reference to Open Files or Ports in the Activity Monitor, but the terminal command worked and I found the offending daemon and deleted it. It was in /Library/Google.
