    igetter is free as long as you dont mind waiting a 10 or 15 seconds count down at the startup of a program. works very good too. www.igetter.net

    I know you said free, but speed download has a trial version and is infact very good!

    It looks better than iGetter and has a proper uninstall!

    I did try out iGetter then tried to delete it but I still get this!

    I've tried spotlighting it but nothing comes up!

    try looking in your Macintosh HD/Library/Contextual Menu Items/ directory
    also check your user folder/Library/Contextual Menu Items/

    I have iGetter and I have even had it linked to Safari but I removed it (seemed a bit buggy under leopard) however I don't have that.

    Have a look in these places to see if you can find something related to iGetter

    /Users/username/Library/InputManagers
    /Users/username/Library/Internet Plug-Ins
    /Users/username/Library/Contextual Menu Items

    Leave it in the trash and next time you reboot/login they will no longer be in use and then you can delete them.

    Speed Download and iGetter are the only two I have come across. iGetter is essentially shareware with the limitation you have to wait for a startup message.

    Both are priced pretty much the same (iGetter is 18p more expensive)
