Hiya, Raam Dev!
It’s been awhile (April ’10 & before that, June ’09), but I’m back. Two questions for you & the gang here:
Doing some routine maintenance tonight & came across some GSU stuff — again! — and also some other Google goo I’m not sure about. Take a look at these:
Question 1 — how much, if any, of these Google files, etc. can I remove? Other than doing a LOT of Google searches in connection with my work, Gmail, and occasional use of Google Maps, I don’t have Gears or any other Google downloadables I’m aware of using. Be specific, I’m under-caffeinated right now 😉 Also, I’m assuming anything I can toss will be a simple drag-to-trash or highlight & “Move to trash” unless told otherwise.
Since the GSU found it’s way back somehow — apparently — I ran these again:
sudo /Library/Google/GoogleSoftwareUpdate/GoogleSoftwareUpdate.bundle/Contents/Resources/GoogleSoftwareUpdateAgent.app/Contents/Resources/install.py –uninstall
I thought the sudo judo had done its magic but, looked again, and the GSU is still there. Tried the ~/Library, etc. and got the Terminal equivalent of “return to sender, address unknown”.
Question 2 – Uh, now what?
