Since Snow Leopard and now Lion, services can be controlled via System preferences > Keyboard. I have plenty of apps which have installed services and when I uninstall them, with cleanapp, they still stick around. My services menu is now full of things I would like to get rid of. Does anyone have any ideas how I can remove these services manually?
I have tried deleting some services that show up in "pbs.plist" in my
/user/library/preferences/ folder, but even when they are deleted there they show up in my system preferences pane as if they were never deleted in the plist; I'm guessing there must be a different file or files which handle the services.
Worse than that is the fact I did a clean install of Lion on an external drive and somehow, I have no idea how, the computer which I used to install Lion on the clean external transferred over all the services I had on that computer. Now I have a ton of services which are not even installed on that hard drive.
