Cool Uninstalled/Old Prgms still appearing in System Information/Installations

Hello --


I have a macbook running ML, and i've been trying to pull crap off of it as to make it faster / free up RAM/CPU / free up storage, etc....

1. i have a problem -- even though i uninstall apps/services through terminal commands, and they no longer appear in the Activity Monitor, they still appear under Installations. This also appears with old versions of programs (look at pics for example).

2. Do you know how i can remove apps/services that are in that page (see pics)? I do not even know how to located them.



3. any tips on how else i can make it (the mac) faster?



Thanks a lot for any help



ps: if this is in the wrong section, please (and sorry) move it. thanks.


thanks

What Terminal commands/procedures did you use to uninstall applications?
Tried the following method yet?
Best way to FULLY DELETE a program without the need of any additional, inefficient applications

Visual presentation of the steps outlined in above link:
If you want to enhance the performance of your Mac, be sure to check these two articles, do not just use applications, that promise to do it for you.

Those are not necessarily apps that are still installed. What you are looking at there is a system log of all apps that have ever been installed. So if you install Battery Health 2.3 then Battery Health 2.4... then remove the Battery Health app completely, it will still be shown on that log because it was once installed on the machine. It just a historical log of apps installed.

You are fine.
