Which of our tools is giving you problems? (possible options: GPGMail, GPGServices, GPG Keychain Access, …)


What’s the version of that tool? (read the following knowledge base article to learn how to find a tool's version:


What version of OS X are you using? (e.g.: 10.8.4, 10.7.5)


Please describe your problem. Add as much detail as possible.

[After uninstalling GPGTools according to the instruction (by finally running the remover script, GPG Preferences still show up under system prefs even after a reboot]

Please describe what you did expect instead

[I expected that it is fully removed]

If you remember, please describe the steps leading up to the problem

[see above - uninstall GPGtools]

    The uninstaller is fixed and will be included in the next stable release of the GPG Suite.
