    I can't delete any service, i have a bunch of useless graphic converter thing that i dont want. I have unchecked them in System Preferences but the next time i launch System Preferences they are still Checked.

    I have look in The System Library Services Folder, The User Library Services Folder and The General System Library Services Folder.

    When clicking "Show in Finder" i just get the app graphicconverter.

    I also ran this terminal command resetting these preferences

    chmod -RN ~/Library/Preferences
    I also reset all the home folder permissions.

    I also repaired permissions.

    I've got a couple of apps like this, with Services I never use. You missed a place to look... Services can also be residing in the app itself in the App>Right-click>Contents>Resources>en.proj (or your chosen language) Folder>ServicesMenu.strings file.

    Sometimes I just delete the file, or use Xcode to edit the ServicesMenu.strings file. You'll need to work on that file again in the event of an update. That's all I've got for you.

    I actually tried that too, but just for one language, I'm going to delete my language.
