    Mac Untaint

    Written by a friend a while ago. Should still work...

    Step one: Go to Finder Terminal enter .bash_history then close terminal.

    Step two: All your hidden files should now be showing, if not you may need to restart your computer.

    Step three: Go to Finder Home Delete a file called .ypp_42

    Step four: Go to Library from Home screen in Finder Preferences Delete six files starting with rsrc.

    Step five: Delete Puzzle Pirates off your computer, empty recycle bin.

    Step six: Go to this web address and download the program: http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/25729/macdaddyx

    Step seven: Open Macdaddy, click the Random Button Complete Mac Address Change

    Step eight: Use a VPN, reinstall Puzzle Pirates, enjoy!

    I'm not sure why you think this would show hidden files but it doesn't.

    An easier way to delete all the files without having to fiddle with showing hidden files would be to enter this into Terminal.app:

    sudo rm -r ~/.ypp_42 ; rm -r ~/Library/Preferences/rsrc.config.*

    just launch and press Delete Files and it does the job too.

    Step one: Go to Finder Terminal enter .bash_history then close terminal.

    .bash_history
    -bash: .bash_history: command not found

    that's what happens when I type it in terminal

    if it returns this:
    rm: .ypp_42: No such file or directory
    rm: /Users/dries/Library/Preferences/rsrc.config.*: No such file or directory

    then the files should already have been removed. you can double check it by entering this into terminal:

    ls -a | grep .ypp_42 ; ls -a ~/Library/Preferences/ | grep rsrc.config

    if it doesn't return anything they are definitely removed.


    about the .bash_history thing: it's just a file that stores the commands you entered into terminal in the past so what op is suggesting has no point

    I appreciate you helping me but when I type the second command in it comes up with: ls -a | grep .ypp_42 ; ls -a ~/Library/Preferences/ | grep rsrc.config

    .ypp_42
    rsrc.config.cast.plist
    rsrc.config.media.plist
    rsrc.config.miso.plist
    rsrc.config.presents.plist

    so I tried doing the first command you wrote down and it came up like this:

    user/ rm -r ~/.ypp_42 ; rm -r ~/Library/Preferences/rsrc.config.
    user/ .ypp_42: No such file or directory
