    Hi folks,

    today I removed GoogleEarth and all the stuff that came with it from my system.
    Now if I do a Finder search and include system files (as proposed in the section for proper manual deleting), I find a file called com.google.GoogleEarthPlus.plist, which is obviously a dead alias, as far as I could find out. At least, if I try to open it, it tells me that the alias cannot be opened.

    My problem is, I cannot remove this file. I can actually do nothing with it, I cannot even drag & drop it.
    Tried to located it via the terminal, but didn't succeed.
    I cannot even locate the path on the hard drive.
    It's not in the Preferences folders, as far as I could make out.

    Any suggestions on how to get rid of this file?

    Thanks a lot!

    Regards,
    Sebastian
