    I recently upgraded my wife's MacBook (3 years old) from Tiger to Snow Leopard using the full Snow Leopard CD. (not the $29 upgrade)

    She used to have a Kensington MouseWorks wireless mouse with Tiger, but hasn't used it in over a year and doesn't plan to anymore. The problem is I can't get rid of MouseWorks Background process that is still running. When I kill the process in the Activity Monitor, it is there the next time the computer is rebooted. Any ideas for the safest way to permanently remove this process?

    Kill the process and use Finder to search for the file(s) associated with it.

    Thanks for the quick replies - the MouseWorks process is history now.
