I stumbled across this within my 09 17" uni-body MBP. (that dents VERY easily, btw) I've researched it and it worries/bothers me that it is imbeded into my laptop. Why would my MBP come with a software that I, the end-user, should choose whether or not it is in my VERY E'FING EXPENSIVE MACHINE? I've been to 2 Apple stores and talked to regular staff and (coff, coff) the genius on duty. Their answers were confusing and laughable. They acted as if I couldn't read simple instructions and information. I am a suspicious bloke by nature and when they gave me the looks that they gave and brushed me off the way they did, well, let's say I upped my dose of my morning meds to get home. I'm wondering if anyone has ANY info for me that might be helpful. Yes, it can be removed. It is only imbeded and runs in the background of 5 (FIVE) major places. Simple fix, I s'pose. HEEELP!!!! dey is wachin meeeee!!!!!
