I have already disabled PressAndHold through terminal, but I see that it still appears as a process on Activity Monitor. It is taking 2.9 MB for me, but I want it to stop and not to begin at all. When I try force quitting, it pops back up. How do you permanently remove this process OR prevent it from activating and taking RAM resources?

What process is that? I can't find it on mine. – Shane Hsu Jan 13 '14 at 9:20
