Frankly, I really like you last suggestion. If I start with a brand new Mac I won't have any old junk files on it.

Re: Strange New Error Message

You could look in Login Items (Preferences > Users and Groups > Login Items). If you see something there you don't want, select it and hit the "-" button. Does the original program have an uninstaller? If it had installed a certain kind of background application, just deleting files like AppCleaner ...

Re: Calendar Spam Invite

I just got the same invitation. I just right-clicked on it to get a popup menu and chose DELETE from the menu. It asked me if I was sure I wanted to decline the invitation, I said yes, and it went away. Yeah, it just happened to me the morning of 11/25. Not only does the spam show up in Calendar bu...
