    I have something that is bothering me, maybe someone can help. I have a subscription to MLBTV. To watch games in HD/higher quality, they have this plug in called NexDef. This plug in is always running. I can do a force quit, but it comes back two seconds later. Killing it also doesn't seem to work.

    Not in my startup processes either, but once I do a restart, it on cue starts running again. I have done some searching, but nothing has worked. Would anyone know how to kill this?

    It is always running about 53-55 threads as well. Way more than anything else I have running.

    Thanks if anyone can help, or help me better understand this.

    It's probably set to auto-respawn via launchd. You might want to read this
