Just follow the paths...
/Library/Application Support/ Move the Conduit file to the Trash.
/Library/Application Support/ Move all of these files to the Trash: SIMBL/Plugins/CT2285220.bundle
/Library/InputManagers/ Move CTLoader to the Trash.
/Library/Receipts/ Move ctloader.pkg to the Trash.
/Library/ScriptingAdditions/ Move any Conduit / CTLoader related files in that folder to the Trash.
/Users/<User name>/Library/Application Support/ Move Conduit to the Trash.

Most likely, the Community Toolbar snuck onto your Mac when a site that you visit asked you if you wouldn't just love a personalized toolbar to make your browsing experience so much more fun. Or if you wanted to watch sporting events live, etc.
So you clicked "yes" and the damnable thing got installed on your Mac.
And now your Safari is all messed up.
You can't turn it off.
You have to delete all of it, via the instructions above.
Sad, but true.
These files don't usually show up in Finder or Spotlight.
You have to learn how to follow the paths that were given to you.
Click open your Hard Drive Icon. Then look for the Library folder.
In there, you'll find LaunchAgents. Open that to find com.contuit.loader.agent.plist.
Take that last folder to the trash.
This one: _/Users/<User name>/Library/Application Support/ Move Conduit to the Trash. _
Open up the HD icon > go down to Users > YourName Account. (It's also called your HOME folder. Open up the Home folder > go to Library folder > look for Application Support. There you will find a Conduit folder.
Then go back and look for all the other files.
There is no shortcut with Finder. You'll find it very easy to follow the paths, once you get used to it.
I wonder what else is able to HIDE from SPOTLIGHT and cant be found by FINDER
I appreciate your help, I didn't even think to manually search, once I saw that Finder/Spotlight said these files cant be found, I assumed they weren't here.
I can't believe the traffic on this topic. There are more ways to fix this than I can follow, the first 5 tries didn't work. I had a system that worked until last night when I installed the latetes update to Safari, this immplie Safari is the root of mhy problem. Just a comment.
My fix will be to delete Safari and use another browser from now on.
Bee, I get the error message everytime I open Safari. I'm on a MacBook Pro 10.6 latest rev and everything worked until I got a very large software update notification 2 days ago. I updated everything except GarageBand. When the computer re-started I went online and had the problem. I've looked at at least 5 different ways to fix, all had replies that it worked for someone but none of them worked for me. I'm not a power user but have many years of Mac and PC experience and can generally work these things thru. At this stage it seems easier to use Firefox or another browser rather than beat my head on the wall.
I really don't blame you. So if you want to stop trying now, that's OK. It's just hard for me to give up, LOL. If you're getting the Community Toolbar error message, it's definitely on there. Were you able to follow the path?
Here's another way of putting it:
Locate and delete:
HD/Users/<User name>/Library/Application Support/Conduit
It may not be in every single location, but get it out where ever you find it.
Restart Safari. Any Better?
The best way to find it is to click on your Finder icon in the Dock, Click the Column View,
then click on your HD icon there, then Library, then Application Support,for example.
