    Yes, that's safe to delete; it hasn't existed in years.
    If you look in your home folder, then Library and then LaunchAgents, you'll see the file there.

    Yup... I actually found this lingering on my system the other day. I think it was left over from MobileMe or even DotMac bookmark sync.

    OP> If it helps you navigate just click the desktop then hit shift.command-g and paste this line in and return.

    Code:
    ~/Library/LaunchAgents

    Did you delete the file from that launch agents folder then restart?

    Logout should suffice too. But it's not an issue: the 'warning' in EtreCheck only means that your system is trying to launch a process upon login, but it doesn't do anything when the binary it is supposed to execute does not exist. It just generates a harmless error message, nothing else.
