This has started popping up after booting since I upgraded to ML.
The odd thing is I had uninstalled Little Snitch (using App Zapper) way before upgrading the OS. I can't find any refrences to it in Startup Items or anywhere else.

Anybody know how I can get rid of this?

Thanks

You should have used the Uninstaller that comes with the program. It's probably installed a kernel extension that needs cleaning up. You may find installing it again with a compatible version, rebooting, then running the uninstaller, will sort out the error. Either that or it's time to start hunting through your file system in the Terminal.

Have you used the uninstaller in Little Snitch's application installer?

Like the others have pointed out you need to use the Little Snitch Uninstaller.
Per their FAQ

The developer's web site says: "Little Snitch 3 is fully compatible with OS X Mountain Lion."

Perhaps if the OP upgrades to v3.x

Good catch, I did not notice his version.

Actually Little Snitch Version 2.5.3 also works on ML. The OP probably pirated it and runs a much older version.

Download version 2.5 on www.obdev.at site Mount it, run the installer and choose uninstall. Restart. Done.

Or he deleted it before installing mountain lion, so he does not have the current version.

I deleted it because it was annoying, not cause it was pirated. :rolleyes:

Atanyrate, I'd gotten rid of it some time ago, so totally forgot there was an unistaller. Thanks for the tips.

I don't believe you - you knew what it does when you installed it.

I am sure the OP will be devastated that a stranger on the Internet doesn't believe them.

I installed Little Snitch and it was initially interesting to see how many times my MBA communicated with the Internet. After a week of it, it became annoying. However, I found the Uninstaller.

No need to cast aspersions, at one point of owning little snitch, I too forgot about the installer and I also started getting annoyed with the notifications of stuff being blocked. Sure, that its job, but with so many apps "phoning home" for what ever reason it got old fast.

As for uninstalling, its easy to forget that it has its own uninstaller because so many OSX are uninstalled by way of drag and drop

The 2.5.3 version runs perfectly on ML indeed.
