    Did you look in your Sys Prefs -> Accounts -> Your account -> Login items to see if there is an item associated with this program? If there is, AppZapper must've missed it. Delete it from the list in Sys Prefs and you should be good.

    Well, I checked that area when I got home from work, and that folder is empty...

    Any other ideas?

    Well, you could check the various StartupItems folders in your hard drive's and your system's Library folder...

    Nope.. I can't find anything related to the cache cleaner in any of the startupitems folders.. I only have 1 user created anyway.

    Maybe I should re-install the app and try the appzapper again...

    Have you considered finding the author of this app and beating the info out of him with a @#$%ing brick?

    Next, check /library/preferencepanes and ~/library/preferencepanes to see if there might be a pane for that app in there. If so, delete it.

    Well, I just went to the author's website and wrote an email... So now I'll just wait for a response.

    I'll post the results when I get an answer just in case anyone else has this problem, or for future reference.

    I finally got the haunting to stop with the help of I guess the author of the application..... Here's a direct quote of their email response.


    Hello,

    TCC is an application, and thus uninstalling is fairly easy. A key to removing it however is to ensure that Automatic Maintenance is off. Instructions to do this are detailed in the users manual. Once Automatic Maintenance is off, just drag TCC to the trash and it is uninstalled. If you wish to be thorough, you can also trash the Preference files as well. If you have already deleted TCC, please feel free to download it again to complete the removal process.

    If you prefer, you can remove TCC manually instead. In the Terminal or Activity Monitor applications, kill the TCC engine process. In the System Preferences, remove the TCC Engine from the Login Items. In your Preferences, delete the TCC related files.

    Regards,
