    I recently updated Yosemite and came across an old application (Sophos) which I attempted to remove. Everything is gone except the Keychain!

    No matter what I try I cannot get rid of it including following their video instructions!

    When I open ‘Terminal’ I get this below:

    Last login: Mon Oct 20 20:50:11 on ttys000
    Canon-MG3570:~ andrewlaird$

    I type in the command:

    sudo /Applications/Utilities/Keychain\ Access.app/Contents/MacOS/Keychain\ Access/

    This is supposed top open the ‘Keychain List’ but I find it’s not there!

    Another strange behavior, unless I’m suffering from paranoia is that when I log into my iCloud my MacPro device is listed as my Canon printer: MG3570


    I’d really appreciate any assistance ;-)

    You can name your device in OS X by opening System Preferences->Sharing Pane. Did you check there?

    Plus did you check /Applications/Utilities/KeyChain Access.app?

    Printer name removed

    Thank you. I feel a little silly for not knowing something so simple regarding the sharing pane!

    Regarding the Sophos. Yes, I went into keychain but it is 'read only' and cannot be deleted. There are quite a few posts floating around different forums and this is one nasty little program!

    They say to type in the command as per my first post but Yosemite has no 'Keychain List'

    OK.then try a different tack. When in Keychain Access right click on or do a Get Info on the entry and find the location it is located. Them use the Terminal to manually delete it.

    Right Clicking doesn't work

    I tried to right click but all I get is as the screen capture. If anyone knows where or how I could find the Keychain List I think I could then delete it?

    There is a Sophos forum thread that has fix in it that may apply.

    This doesn't work for Yosemite

    No this doesn't work either by following their video! The reason is there is no keychain list!
