Throttling respawn errors -- help!

Anyone have any thoughts on how to deal with this Console message?

10/8/09 2:13:11 PM[1] (com.freemacsoft.appcleanerdaemon[531]) posix_spawn("/Library/Application Support/AppCleaner/AppCleaner Daemon", ...): No such file or directory
10/8/09 2:13:11 PM[1] (com.freemacsoft.appcleanerdaemon[531]) Exited with exit code: 1
10/8/09 2:13:11 PM[1] (com.freemacsoft.appcleanerdaemon) Throttling respawn: Will start in 10 seconds

I can't figure out how to get this process stopped.

This app was, apparently, installed at one time and appears to be launched at Startup/Login.

Right, sorry I didn't explain before:

I once had AppCleaner installed, but I've since uninstalled it. There's nothing to indicate that it still exists on my machine in the Login Items window, the StartupItems directory, the LaunchAgents or LaunchDaemons directories (both in the system folder and in my user folder), or on the Activity Monitor. But when I open up the Console, it shows the throttling respawn error repeating over and over again.
