    Hi All,

    New to MacRumors & semi-new to Mac...

    I recently switched from using the Folding@Home Client to the InCrease client. Ever since, when clicking on Terminal I get the error in the below screenshot and the terminal session quits. (this did NOT happen prior to removing FAH client and installing InCrease)

    I imagine some preference file got altered, but I don't know where to look for it / fix it.

    It's in one of two invisible files: .bashrc or .bash_profile, both in your home folder. Open those in a text editor and delete the line "/Applications/fah4.app" or whatever it is.

    Same thing happened to me in my terminal with a different program. The method above works well.

    does that mean it's fixed?

    'cuz it might also be in the Terminal preference pane...
