Hi everyone,

I'm trying to remove the remaining vestiges of a program that added menu options when right-clicking on a file in the hard disk (see attached picture). The program was Intego Virus Barrier X5. I uninstalled it using their official uninstall program, yet you will notice the option to "Submit Suspicious File to Intego" and "Add to VirusBarrier X5 Trusted Zone" still exists somewhere in my system when I right-click on a file. I'm at a loss at how to remove these annoying menu options. Any ideas?

The most effective method for complete app removal is manual deletion:

Check in the two Library folders for contextual menu items; probably there.
