Calibrated{Q} issue

I loaned my MBP to a friend and they installed the dreaded Calibrated{Q} program.

Needless to say this has caused me all sorts of problems, XDCAM Transfer 2.9 has the expired licence grey lines through the footage, even if i use a motion template and drop some of my xdcam footage into the drop zone it outputs green.

I have deleted the calibrated{Q} folder from applications, library/quicktime/ and users/../library/preferences/.

FCP is version 6.0.4, I upgraded QT to 7.6.2, XDCAM Transfer is version 2.9, i even deleted all of my footage and re-imported it.

I have restarted, turned my MBP upside down, jumped on one foot whilst pledging allegiance to my countries flag and I still get the demo grey bars.

What else can i do?

Sorry if you're having any problems. Uninstalling is very straight-forward for all of our plugins:

1. Delete Calibrated folder in /Applications directory
2. Delete Calibrated plugins in /Library/QuickTime directory (you musy manually go to this directory and delete the plugins - do not just use spotlight to try to find plugins)
3. restart
4. you're done
