    Hi Chris,

    welcome to the GPGTools support platform. Sorry you are having problems using GPG Suite.

    You can always contact us when you are running into trouble using GPG Suite.

    From your debug info it looks as if you removed GPG Keychain from your system which is the key manager.

    If you want to remove GPG Suite altogether, this KB-article explains how to uninstall GPGTools.

    If you want to get your setup right and running, I'd suggest to re-install the latest GPG Suite so that you have access to GPG Keychain again.

    Let me know if you further want to debug this problem and I'll provide additional steps how to get your setup right.
