Application keeps trying non-existent server on launch

Recommended Posts


Running 10.11.2 (purchased 11/2015)

Initial LAN configuration was straightforward -- had USB external device off of my Linksys EA6900 (poor man's media server, network storage), which allowed for to resolve as a server, when connecting to smb://  Since that initial configuration, I've ditched the USB storage off of the router and instead use a NAS storage device.  Everything works great, except for one thing...

I purchased a software bundle from MacPaw (CleanMyMac3, Hider2, Gemini).  The Hider2 application is meant for creating a Vault and securing whatever files/folders you choose to include.  Hider2 was installed while I was still using the USB storage.  Now that I'm not using it, smb:// is not a valid server address, but Hider2 is still trying to access it on launch.  I've worked with MacPaw's support and Apple's support in an effort to remove the connection attempts, but they both threw their hands up.  I've run a grep through Terminal and EasyFind (3rd party search app) for that IP address, I've uninstalled all 3 apps (via AppCleaner) and removed any residual files.  The problem still exists...and for the life of me, I can't figure out a solution.  I don't even care about the Hider2 app at this point, but it's become my mission to figure it out before I resort to a system restore.  Any help you can provide would be most appreciated.

Other than the screenshot below, I was able to narrow down the Console log entry that relates to this Hider2 application -- although I'm not familiar with the Agents or Daemens that might be at play:

Console log entry --- Dec 30 00:51:02 IMAC NetAuthSysAgent[597]: smb_mount: mount failed to, syserr = No such file or directory
