I know what multiple means. Your comments can be misleading, making readers think they have to search "over and over", when in fact, it's one search, then one more search. Technically, it's search, then "search over", not "search over and over". It's not a hardship to perform 2 searches, and certainly not as difficult as locating, downloading, installing and learning to use another app, when another 30 seconds or less to perform one additional search would have done the job.

It shows the software in finder, but it says "no matches found" in iFileX

Where are you seeing it in Finder?

If it can be seen in Finder a search like this in iFileX should show it.

Okay, so, when trying to search for files in finder.. when I add search system files .. visible or invisible, why does it show my bookmarks in safari?

The same thing happened when I tried uninstalling another app, the search showed my emails too! I don't know what I'm doing wrong

You're not doing anything wrong. It's normal that search results may include emails, bookmarks and other items you don't want to delete. That's why you should exercise care when choosing items for deletion.

There is nothing misleading at all about what I said. I simply provided another tool to do the job without multiple searches. If you don't want to use that tool, don't use it. Simple as that.

Odd. In that Finder screenshot, select DiscCatalogMaker and hit command-i to bring up the get info pane and tell me what file path it shows at the top under Where:.

That's normal. Those are all just different files on your drive.
