Timemachine problem

Story:
On my previous MacBookPro I tried Time Machine and let it backup to a firewire disk. Then I decided that this kind of a backup was not what I wanted and I took this disk to use for other purposes and I turned Time Machine off in the System Preferences.

Problem:
Still it kept nagging: Time Machine could not complete the backup. No backup disk has been selected. Open Time Machine preferences to select a backup disk.

Problem continues on a new MacBook Pro:
I got a new MBP and transfered my account over from the old machine. I still get this error message but I have never turned TM on on that Mac and TM is in off position.

It's quite obvious that there is some setting or a file in my account that is keeping this going on.

The question is:
How can I get rid of this error message?

I just removed com.klieme.TimeMachineScheduler.plist I found in /Library/Launch Agents. It's from 2007.

Possible solution. Waiting for the next nag.

Ok. This seems to have cured the problem.

It turns out that I was too silly not to try any serious trouble shooting. I found no solution online. Writing the request for a solution made me think again and the problem was solved.
