    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 /
