Hi everyone.

Does anyone know how to find and get rid of kiesviawifiagent.app? Ideally, I would like to keep the functionality of kies.app to be able to sync the data between my MBP and my mobile. However, I am not quite sure whether it is possible to remove kiesviawifiagent.app, which is unbelievably slowing down my laptop, without loosing the herein mentioned functionality of kies.app. I should stress that I am not concerned about loosing the option of wifi syncing. Does anyone have any reasonable suggestions?

Cheers,
Jiri

Have you asked the developer how/if it can be disabled? Finding it is easy, but there's no point if something else you want to run is built to require it.

Hi. I've faced with this problem too.
Can't find any reasons of this problem.
So, I just deleted kiesviawifiagent.

If kiesviawifiagent is running, kill it.
Open Finder, Application, ctrl+click on Kies, Show Package Contents, open Contents/MacOS, delete kiesviawifiagent.
