Speaking of Input Managers...

Some app installed Smart Crash Reports without my knowledge or consent again.

I hate when apps do stuff like that.

Of course, whatever app did it also failed to leave a log entry about it so it's next to impossible for me to figure out which app did it without re-installing and running every program that I've got or have tried out on my Mac in the last few months.

It somehow got past both disabled write-access to the folder and a folder action that is supposed to warn me when something is dropped into the Input Managers folder so I suspect that it was one of those apps that uses an installer to get admin authorization. That barely narrows the list down.

'Seems like half the Mac programmers out there don't know how to distribute an app without using an obnoxious installer.
