    Hi there, i was wondering if anyone could help me resolve my problem with my login screen. Its not a problem but rather an inquiry. I have SAASPASS setup to use for authentication to get into my computer the problem is that there is an annoying help button right in the dead middle of the screen and I cannot delete it. Ive gone through all the package contents and .nibs nothing. Can anyone give this a look and see where the application is reading to put that there so i can delete a string or something I've been on this for 5 hours come up empty.

    Seriously, you expect someone to search for that.

    It looks like a standard OS X help button. It could have been dragged there via Interface Builder in a nib file, but since you can't find it, the likelihood of it being programmatically added is more likely.

    also there was one .nib in an en.Iproj folder called MainMenu.nib that i couldn't open. is there a way to open these up without the application I am currently using called NibUnlocker?

    I've never heard of NibUnlocker. You could download Xcode and try that. It's free in the Mac App Store.

    If the button was added via code, it is something you can't get to without knowing a lot about disassembling code and restructuring it. With code signing it may even more difficult.

    yeah i cannot open it with Xcode unless it is in .xib format. I've been working to make a decompiler but thats still not looking promising.
