    A week ago moved to Curve 9300 from T-Mobile. Have a Macbook with 10.5.8. Had BBDTM installed for about 2 years - no problems.

    A few days ago I got a quick message that popped up that indicated that something related to BB (I read it very quickly) wanted access to my keychain. I clicked yes. Now I have Macintosh HD icon in my dock. When I click it, the upper left frame states 'BBLaunchAgent'. When I click the 'BBLaunchAgent' there is no menu drop down. I can't remove the HD icon from the dock - it just pops back.

    I don't know if its coincidence, but a day before this happened, I purchased a new wireless router (Belkin N150). I do use the UMA function on the T-Mobile service to make calls over WiFi.

    I have uninstalled BBDTM. Even go through the libraries to ensure that all the remnants are removed. I even went and deleted any BB related keys in keychain. That does make the icon go away.

    But when I reinstall BBDTM, the icon reappears.

    The icon makes me concerned - I don't want to screw anything up very badly. Admittedly I am not very computer 'saavy' (why I purchased a Mac to begin with).

    Any help or guidance to get rid of this would be very helpful.

    Thanks!

    I installed said router today and randomly got this bblaunchagent program running as my macHD on my dock too. I have a blackberry and maybe at one point downloaded something, but it looks like the launchagent was installed at the same exact time as I installed my router, so I doubt it's related to having anything on my computer (and any searches for blackberry or other key words I found on another forum of this problem showed up no results).

    I'm going to try and uninstall the Belkin wireless router, which will hopefully make the bblaunchagent go away. I was told not to use the disk when hooking up to the wireless router to avoid what is in my opinion a wonderful waste of time and energy.

    Solution found
    I ran the Activity Monitor, and selected All Processes, and found Bblaunchagent, then dbl clicked and selected open files and ports. Should find :/Library/Application Support/Blackberry... I moved the whole folder to trash, but couldn't empty it because BBDaemon was running. Find it in the activity monitor and quit the process. Then you can delete and be rid of this cpu burning crapfest.

    I also installed the new Belkin router and have this problem. Unfortunately, the solution did not work for me. Please help!

    I went to Activity Monitor and here is what I got under Open Files and Ports (below). But I couldn't find any of these folders on my Macbook! For example, in Library>Application Support>BlackberryDesktop, there is no BBLaunchAgent! (There isn't even a Library>Application Support>Blackberry!)

    /
    /Library/Application Support/BlackBerry/BBLaunchAgent.app
    /Library/Frameworks/RimBlackBerryUSB.framework/Versions/A/RimBlackBerryUSB
    /Library/Caches/com.apple.LaunchServices-023501.csstore
