    I used to have iStat and I uninstalled it through TrashMe, which i guess I wasn't supposed to do because now there's two iStat daemons in Activity Monitor. When I kill them, they just come back. How do I get rid of them?

    Yeah, but searching yields no results except for one file that's from macports, whatever the hell that is :\

    Delete the following files and reboot.

    /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.bjango.istatlocaldaemon.plist
    ~/Library/Preferences/com.bjango.istatlocal.plist
    ~/Library/Preferences/com.bjango.istatmenus.plist
    ~/Library/Preferences/com.bjango.systemuiserver.plist
    ~/Library/Caches/com.bjango.istatmenus
    ~/Library/LaunchAgents/com.bjango.istatlocal.plist

    Can you open up activity monitor and tell me who the process user is? You, or root?

    Edit.

    An easier solution to your problem is to re-download istat menus, install, launch the app, click on istat menus>uninstall.
