This is the first I've heard of an app that creates hidden files/folders as part of its installation, but as simsaladimbamba said, you can add that criteria to your search to catch those. Thanks for the "heads up"!

You are welcome GGJstudios

By the way, when I ran muCommander, I noticed there were some other hidden folders, can't remember them all, wish I had have taken notice to report, which I had to manually remove as well which the steps you outlined missed to delete.

Adding the file visibility criteria to your search should find all of them.

Yep, thank you.

I wish someone would write a script or app that helps this process, as it can get tedious, especially for newbies to iMac as myself who want to install many Apps to play around with and test etc.

Once I have used iMac for awhile I will have a better idea what Apps I need and won't need to install so many Apps anymore.
