    I just installed "Automatic" to my "other" section of my preference pane. I no longer want it. Using a mouse, i was able to right click and remove it from my pane, but in Spotlight, it still seems like its listed under system pref. how do i get rid of it all. Currently, if i select it in Spotlight, i am prompted to re-install to the pref pane.

    It should be in /Library/PreferencePanes, you can delete it there.

    Check the library both in your home folder, and the root folder.

    found out from the delevloper that it saves 2 files in the user/library/application support folder. once those were put in the trash it does not show up in spotlight anymore

    thanks
