At some point I installed gpgtools to test some gpg specific functionality. Ever since I have not used it. Then all of a sudden I get the big red dialog box that says I need to upgrade and pay. I can either install the update and pay, or remind me later. I keep googling trying to figure out where this dialog is coming from and how I get rid of it. It itself has no option to uninstall.

No nasty red dialog, or one of the buttons on the bottom to allow me to exit/uninstall the whole thing gracefully. As of now I keep dismissing it and having it pop up at random times later.

BIG NASTY RED DIALOG is bad, want it to just go away.
