Hi all,

I am new here. i searched on the forum and on the internet, but found no solution yet to my problem.
I removed an app (microsoft Office) recently, but it appears as there are still some .sfl aliases which I am not able to delete.
i don't even get a path to them! They only appear if I search for "microsoft" in the library folder. If i right click and ask for more infos, it simpy tells me "unknown access".
Any idea how to get rid of these?

Thanks in advance

From a Terminal window, do the following: are there any results?

Code:
cd /Library
find . -name 'com.microsoft*' -exec ls -l {} \;

If nothing showing, likely Spotlight index not up-to-date and or corrupt. If so:

Code:
sudo mdutil -E /
