    For a while Safari has been hella slow on my Macbook, especially when you start doing anything video/audio related. Rewinding or opening a Youtube video sometimes accurs out of sync audio and my machine to lock up.

    So after some inspecting in console I came across this (there's many more lines but just duplicates)

    Boom2 is an audio app, I thought I had fully removed it (following steps from a thread on this forum of how to fully delete an app). There appears to be no remonents of it left on my install of Yosemite yet it is flashing up in console every couple of lines.. could this be my problem as to why the machine literally falls over every 20-30 minutes?

    If so where else could I search for any left overs to delete?

    Thanks.

    Open a finder window for the root of your drive ("MacIntosh HD", probably). Then in the search box type

    com.globaldelight.Boom2Daemon

    If nothing shows up, the click the + button on the top right of the window (beside the save button) and add a category "System files" "are included".

    You could also look for it in:

    • ~/Library/LaunchDaemons
    • ~/Library/LaunchAgents
    • /Library/LaunchDaemons
    • /Library/LaunchAgents
    Where ~ means your home folder.

    The only things it finds are web search results files in my history directory for Safari

    Did you add the line to search system files?

    Did you search in the four folders I suggested?

    If so, also check:

    /system/library/launchAgents

    and

    /system/library/launchDaemons

    Re do the search, this time clicking on "THIS MAC" instead of "APPLE SSD"

    So I reinstalled it and started the removal process again, success.. the log started clearing.

    This morning it's back however

    There's literally nothing left on this machine with that file name, so what's it doing?! Oh and it's crashing the machine out again

    Code:
    /System/Library/Extensions/
    Look in this folder for a Boom kext extension and remove it then reboot.

    There's nothing in there related to it. Could it be possible that it's related to me transferring my Safari data files across from when I reinstalled OS X? Maybe there's a setting looking for "com.globaldelight.Boom2Daemon" ?

    The log is still pointing the finger at "com.apple.xpc.launchd" for launching it however..

    I don't think that would bring it over. Let's try another search, only use the app iFileX to do the search. It will find things Finder has trouble with. Ever since Mavericks some files will not show up in a search unless you are in the folder where the file is.

    OP, how did you uninstall Boom2? I have the older Boom version and you cannot just trash it to uninstall. The uninstall procedure is to open boom window (click on boom icon in toolbar, then click on the arrow/window icon), then open preferences window (click on gear icon on the lower right corner of the boom window; choose preferences), then finally uninstall from the uninstall tab. Not sure if it's the same procedure in Boom2, but I think you should try reinstalling Boom2, then uninstall it using the uninstall option inside the app.

    This is exactly what I did after my first post to remove it's entry from my audio settings in system prefs.

    I also ran the terminal commands to rid any remnants left.

    The only other thing I can think of is that my version of Boom has an option "Keep Boom Helper running when I quit Boom" in the Boom app Preferences>General. Maybe make sure it's not checked, before uninstalling from inside the app?
    Also, there seems to be manual uninstall guide at: http://www.uninstallmacapp.com/boom-2-0-6-removal.html

    So last night I rebuilt the launch services and so far that seems to have ridden it from the log. I have also done a few cosmetic changes such as disabling transparency and turning off the switch option between built in vs dedicated graphics.. and touch wood it's been a hell of a lot faster. I still have an unbelievable amount of windowserver issues in the log but if the machine is happy for now then I'll ignore them - thanks for your input :)
