i installed NTFS for Mac OS X (trial version) and removed it when it expired, but now every time I log on, I see this box that says "Your trial version has expired. To continue using the driver please buy it online" etc.

I removed the application and there's no entry under System Preferences -> Accounts -> Login Items for the application. I do have QuickApps (which lists all apps) under Login Items.

Are all of the files removed?

They include:

/Applications/Paragon NTFS for Mac OS X /Manual.pdf
/Applications/Paragon NTFS for Mac OS X/Register NTFS for Mac OS X.app
/Library/Application Support/Paragon NTFS for Mac OS X/NTFS for Mac OS X.app
/Library/PreferencePanes/NTFSforMacOSX.prefPane
/System/Library/Filesystems/ufsd_NTFS.fs
/System/Library/LaunchAgents/com.paragon.NTFS.trial.plist
/etc/mach_init_per_user.d/trial_expired_NTFS.plist
/sbin/fsck_ufsd_NTFS
/sbin/mount_ufsd_NTFS
/sbin/newfs_ufsd_NTFS
/usr/lib/libUFSDNTFS.dylib
/usr/sbin/fsctl_ufsd
/Library/Logs/ufsd.log
/tmp/ufsd.log
/usr/share/.intelligence
/Library/Receipts/$PRODUCT.pkg/Archive.bom

The PDFs and such don't matter, it's just for complete removals sake. It's likely only the trial_expired_NTFS.plist and com.paragon.NTFS.trial.plist files.

Thanks a lot!!! This was driving me nuts. I was missing the app support files. – Joel Jan 27 '10 at 0:55

In latest versions you can just do

System Preferences -> Paragon NTFS -> Settings tab -> Uninstall

I have had the same problem(s). Mac OSX 10.5.8. Try accessing the following file:

/username/Library/Preferences/loginwindow.plist

Edit with a text editor (some will not work -- "Text Wrangler" worked for me. Make a duplicate file BEFORE editing (just in case). Remove the unnecessary coding -- everything between the <dict> AND </dict> coding INCLUDING the <dict> and </dict> coding as well.

Example:

 <dict>
   <key>AliasData</key>
   <data>
   AAAAAADmAAMAAQAAfCWwgFwYSCsAAAAAAFe3TQBXumkAAMZc/kwA
   L1Jlc291cmNlcy9Hcm93bE1lbnUuYXBwAAATAAEvAP//AAA=
   </data>
   <key>Hide</key>
   <false/>
   <key>Path</key>
   <string>/Library/PreferencePanes/Growl.prefPane/Contents/Resources/NTFS.app</string>
  </dict>

Go to System Preferences, open NTFS and press uninstall.
