Why don't you just use the Go command to go to the /Library/StartupItems/ folder and move qmaster to the desktop? Then reinstall Final Cut Studio, Logic Studio, and/or Shake, if you still use any of those programs.

Once it's re-installed, you can delete the copy on the desktop.

i was just about to say what GGJstudios suggested worked for the finder window but not the Qmaster. and i went to the folder and these (pic) are the contents, i wasn't sure what they are for and what would happen if i deleted them.

So there for final cut?? i don't have/use that so i can delete them?? can i delete the whole Qmaster folder or just the contents inside it?? thanks.

Wikipedia says that Qmaster is only used for Final Cut Studio, Logic Studio, or Shake. So theoretically, if you don't use any of those, I suppose you could just nuke the entire folder - BUT I have never used those programs myself, and when I used to try deleting things like that when I was younger, I ended up breaking some programs I really wanted.

So why not play it safe and just disable Qmaster by moving it to the Desktop or a backup disk? Once you are POSITIVE you haven't broken anything, then you can delete it. Disabling it should be enough to make the annoying message go away anyway.
