There is an icon next to New Folder in my Finder windows labeled SetupSam.app. Doing a spotlight search for "SetupSam" yields nothing, but I found it in user/Library/toolbar scripts. If I click on the icon I get a "the variable hone is not defined" message and applescript opens.

I think it might have come from the Akamai software I had to install in order to download/install photoshop 9 trial - from the adobe photoshop 9 website. I have uninstalled both photoshop 9 and the akami software. I don't know when this icon showed up in Finder, but I don't think it was there originally when I got my mac in August.

Anyone know what this is? Googling "setupsam" and "setupsam.app" didn't yield anything that seemed pertinent.

I don't know how good Finder's search is but you could see if it can find the original source of the file.
Open a Finder window.
In the Search bar type in SetupSam.app or SetupSam.
Click on the + icon that is next to the Save button.
In the Kind drop down menu choose Other...
Scroll down to choose Original Source.

There might be something that I'm missing as I have never tried this before.

Thanks Buddyme2

I tried a search for Original Source per your directions but it doesn't yield anything. I don't understand why spotlight fails to find the file but I can see it in Finder. I used to sometimes be able to figure out what program dll, exe, etc files came from by rightclick > properties, but the only info I got from command + i was that the file was created Nov 5, 2010.

The file's icon is the script icon and I'm now thinking it's an example I worked of an apple script from an apple training series book. The location is right and it's the only file in that folder.
