    When I go to Library/Application Support...iStat Local is not there. Why isn't that in my folder?
    I don't want the new paid version. I just want to keep what I have and not have the update checker pop up every 10 minutes.

    Sorry, I cannot help you.

    But have you tried atMonitor? It does the same thing, but is a free app. I, personally, have not used either one.

    Looks very similar.

    Asked them a while ago and this was there reply:

    We are very sorry about the problem. Its caused by a bug in the update checker in version 2.
    We are looking at releasing a patch but until we do you can fix it by removing the update checker which is located at - /Library/Application Support/iStat local/iStat menus Updater.app

    Cheers,
    Bjango Support Team


    Of course it isn't, so I'm not sure what to do.

    Uh, I just want to get rid of the updater. I don't care about switching apps.

    Library

    You say the item is not where support said it would be. Question for you, did you try /Library or ~/Library. Hint, it's the first one. In the finder click on your HDD then Library and you should be able to find your way from there.

    Thank you sooooo much.

    This has solved so many "problems".

    Even if OSX is soo better and simpler than windows, I am still learning how it works...

    Thanks again
