    Can anyone tell me what the AppDaemon process is (OS 10.4.11)? I can't seem to find info on it anywhere.

    Thank you

    I would very much like to know the same. Google hasn't brought me much of an answer so far. It's listed as a PowerPC process, but I did a clean install of Snow Leopard. So, SOMETHING ELSE must have installed it?

    Found it!

    So shortly after posting I discovered where this process came from. It was from a driver install to a USB wireless card. It's some rather old software. Oddly, there was an uninstall shell script included on the installer disc image. Here is the script ("flair" and usage responsibility warnings removed):

    . /etc/rc.common
    echo "                                                                  "
    echo "Please type the password of \"root\" to uninstall ..."
    #echo "Removing Preference Pane..."
    #sudo rm -r /System/Library/PreferencePanes/Wireless\ Adaptor.prefPane
    echo "Removing Startup Items..."
    [B]sudo rm -r /System/Library/StartupItems/WiUtilityUSBStartUp
    [/B]echo "Removing Driver..."
    sudo rm -r /System/Library/Extensions/RT2500USBWirelessDriver.kext
    echo "Removing Application"
    sudo rm -r /Applications/Belkin\ Wireless\ USB.app
    echo "Removing Pkg"
    sudo rm -r /Library/Receipts/install.pkg
    echo "                                                                  "
    echo "Uninstall Complete."
    I marked where the AppDaemon process exists in bold. However, it might be worth looking in the other directories for some of the other items listed; they may not be needed either. Hope that helps anyone trying to find and remove that old process.
