    I tried to kill a process from an app that I thought I had uninstalled and it just keeps coming back. I want to delete it, but Spotlight can't find it. Does anyone know how I can find a file that Spotlight can't?

    I'm not sure if this will work, but you might give it a try.

    Try the app iFileX to search. If you are on Mavericks, Finder is broken and currently will not find many system files even if you tell it to specifically search for them. This app makes it much easier.
