    I installed WiFind way back probably a year ago. I never used it so I didn't buy it after the free trial ended. Once I migrated over to Leopard I started getting this error. It went away after awhile, but it is back with this new Leopard update. I cannot find any of this plugins components where I think they would be. Can someone help me with this one?

    Thanks

    Just remove the plugin (which will be in /Library/Application Support/SIMBL/plugins or in the equivalent in your home directory).

    Same problem, removing plugin did not work.

    Apologies for the bump, but I'm having the same problem - only removing the plugin does not remove the error dialog box.

    I have removed the files from the SIMBL/Plugins folder, as well as the Input Manager folders, following these instructions:

    I'm still getting the same box as the OP did in his screenshot.

    I would just reinstall Leopard and be done with it but a Time Machine backup would reinstall Wifind all over again. Aagh!

    Try removing SIMBL itself from /Library/InputManagers (that's the main system library, not the one in your user folder). That will, however, disable ALL of your SIMBL plugins (not necessarily a bad thing - SIMBL can be a source of flakiness). You'll need to logout or reboot afterwards for it to go away entirely.

    The WiFind removal instructions mentions removing all of the directories mentioned here (InputManagers and Application Support) explicitly.

    If you've only removed the InputManagers folder and things are working, you should still consider removing the Application Support directory.
