    So I had this anti-virus pu on my computer when I went to Cardiff (its required to get on the network). Now I deleted all of the files associated with it without checking if it had an uninstaller, but now, the icon still appears in my System Preferences. Does anyone know how to get it out?

    Thanks

    Check /Library/PreferencePanes for third-party preference pane add-ons.

    AppZapper is also a nice little application that helps to uninstall programs without uninstallers.
