    When I first got my MBP few weeks ago, a friend wanted to install and test his 3G USB modem... so we stuck the USB modem in and it installed a bunch of stuff. By chance I discovered this in the system.log tonight:

    Basically it just does that over and over again, every 10-15 seconds or so.

    How do I get rid of it? I've used AppCleaner to delete the corresponding Vodafone app and also removed the 'network adapter' under network.

    It sounds like there's a startup entry for that application. Check MacOSXHints, they should have a guide for finding rogue startup items.
