You should uninstall LS with its own uninstaller.

You can't delete Little Snitch in the same way as other OSX apps as it has little kernel extensions to filter traffic that must also be removed. Download the Installer program off their website and run it, then select Uninstall when the option is presented.

Little Snitch and menu bar

Hi all, I'm having the very same problem, but I've done everything the correct way, as discussed in this forum. I installed Little Snitch on my computer, I then decided it wasn't for me and uninstalled it. I then noticed a hand sign (icon) in the menu bar with a prohibited sign (red circle with a bar across) over the hand. I went into the Library having read a number of these posts on other sites as well as this one and deleted anything to do with Little Snitch, many of which were in the preference files, still could not remove the hand icon. I then reinstalled and again uninstalled the software, again removed the files from the Library and also went into system preferences, user groups and looked for anything to do with Little Snitch in there to no avail, now I'm stuck with this hand icon on the menu bar with no way to remove it. Anyone have any other ideas.

Regards

Pozzy
