Hi guys..

I have a problem, I cannot seem to solve on my own;
After I've removed TVShows on my mac, it still downloads (?) and opens the torrents in my BitTorrent-client.
How do I remove it completely?

Thank you very much

    Hi Jacob,

    You need to stop the background process before removing the PrefPane. Can you still see the PrefPane in System Preferences? If not, just install TVShows it so it appears again.

    Then, open the PrefPane, go to the About tab and click the uninstall button. This should stop the background process and remove the PrefPane, but just in case, open System Preferences and if the PrefPane is still there, now you can safely right click it and remove it.

    Please let us know if this worked.

    Hi Cristina.

    Thank you very much. I've just applied your changes - but I can't really tell you if it's working until a new torrent is available (I'll let you know in next week??

    Yours truly
