Right, so I've read a few threads on here and a few other forums about the bullsh*te surrounding the pain-in-the-arse that was Google Desktop, I've tried the solution that seemed to work for most people (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=634221) but to no avail. I've even tried downloading, reinstalling and uninstalling GoogleDesktop but I still have a process called googledesktopdae, which I can see in Activity Monitor, constantly running and sometimes using 94-97% of my CPU capacity. The process seems to pick up (from 5-6% to 80-97%) after coming out of sleep. This is pretty annoying, but I s'pose it's my fault for not uninstalling properly when I got rid of Google Desktop the first time. I'm running 10.5.8 on a mid 2009 Macbook Pro. Any ideas?
