    I think I have searched around enough to understand -- in VERY basic terms --what "throttling respawn" means. And I think I kind of get that I want to root out the thing that's not starting and stop it from trying to load, but I'm not sure what it is or why it's doing this.

    I hope I don't sound hopelessly stupid, but perhaps I am. Could someone please translate this for me?

    My console reads like this for hours on end, until it finally freezes entirely and I have to power it off and back on:

    I am on a 2008 iMac with 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo on Version 10.9.1

    Run this in Terminal:

    Code:
     launchctl unload -w ~/Library/LaunchAgents/de.ksitec.llakie.StartAtLoginHelper.plist 
    That should immediately stop it and prevent it from reoccurring.

    It tells me that there is "No such file or directory."

    Closest thing I have is ~/Library/Containers/de.ksitec.llakie.StartAtLoginHelper/Data/Library/Preferences/de.ksitec.llakie.StartAtLoginHelper.LSSharedFileList.plist/

    Is that the same thing?

    ----------

    I do have it. I don't use it. It didn't do what I needed.

    Sorry...I'm recovering MicroSoft user from the days of DOS until 2008, so I don't always "think Mac" the way I should, so perhaps this question is not applicable, but:

    How would I uninstall icufree?

    Unfortunately that file is not what is needed.

    None of those would be the file that I was hoping they'd be. You may disregard my first post with the Terminal command.
