not getting much help int he macbook pro forum, so i will try here. long story short, downloaded a bunch of apps last night, woke up this morning, and my macbook was in a tizzy like i'd never seen. The night before it was working better than ever after deleting 10 gbs worth of files, trimming back some apps, upgrading the ram, etc. Now it is barely useable, with the console releasing an error a second or more, keyboard and mouse freezing every minutes, most programs not opening. Solutions tried so far: 1. Put old ram back in. nothing. 2. osx reinstall from startup, nothing. 3. attempts to uninstall clean my mac and bluestacks, so far unsuccessful, as they are stil showing up in the console. 4. Cleared out stsrtup sgents and cache in ~/library/ folder. here is my most recent post from the old thread: still getting the "kernel panics", reinstalled OSX, and put old ram back in, still the console is greaking out. I have however, gone in and deleted the cache files in ~/library/, which too had no effect. I just went back in and looked at the startup agents. This, however, seems promising, as the every single file in this folder has shown up in an error in the last 24 hours in my console. I deleted all of them, stil getting tons of errors and freezing but this has to be some kind of indication of what is going on? I think i have narrowed down the culprit to either: A.)bluestacks for mac, despite attempts to remove, this app not only did not uninstall but it managed to bring itself back from the "Dead" after a clean osx reinstall. USE WITH CAUTION B.) Clean my mac- as i said earlier, i downloaded this app, and am not even sure I installed it before it seems to have infiltrated my entire system. Despite not running in activity monitor, not having an icon anywhere on my computer, and not showing up at all in any search, it was the first and has been the most frequent error in console in last 24 hours, and had about three entires in my launch agents folder, a folder that as stated earlier, seems to contain almost every program that the mac is having trouble connecting with or freaking out about. more specifically it is the "helper" file that is causing chaos, and it seems the same thing is happening with the google daemon helper (?) gmail, bluestacks helper, chrome helper, and a couple others. Alfred, the search app, is another one that seems to be a problem for clean my mac. it keeps trying to delete it according to console saying something along the lines that it is an old unnecessary app, ( it is a couple weeks old). I previously had no problems with this macbook prior to this morning, with the exception of the annoying freezing magic mouse problem with lion that makes my trackpad useless most of the time, which my research has shown to be largely insolvable, but it is managed with the use of an external, which up until today had always worked if the trackpad was turned off. I am going to search and see if i can find an effective way to delete these two apps for good. Any other ideas?
