Crontabs wasting my time

I uninstalled some trial software, but apparently it's left entries in some crontabs somewhere, because cron keeps trying to open it even though it's not there. This is a message I received in Mail. The command-line kind, not Mail.app

/bin/sh: /Library/*blah*/*blahd*: No such file or directory


I also get errors in my system.log.

I already deleted one instance of this in a crontab; after rebooting I still get new mail and system.log messages saying that cron failed to start something.
