Remove Application - CrashPlan Pro
Hello everyone, I may have a newby question here but here goes
The CrashPlan Pro application that was installed on the iMac I am using is locked and I am not finding success in removing/uninstalling it. (When I try to unlock the check box in the 'Get Info' pane the box repeatedly re-checks.)
I am logged in as ADMIN with the Master Password and have attempted to simply drag the icon to the trash- no success. I also tried to remove the application by using spotlight to locate all files/folders and was able to delete everything but the actual application.
I end up getting a message that states I don't have permission to delete the application... Pretty frustrating!
Thanks for any help on this.

What Mac OS X version do you use?
And Spotlight is not as effective as the built in search.
Best way to FULLY DELETE a program without the need of any additional, inefficient applications

Did you try changing the system and user immutable flags? In the terminal window as root type the following after cd /Applications/
ls -lhdO /Applications/CrashPlan.app
drwxrwxr-x 3 root admin schg,uchg 102B Apr 8 2013 /Applications/CrashPlan.app
schg,uchg are the system and user immutable flags. To remove them, do the following:
chflags noschg CrashPlan.app # this removes system immutable flag
chflags nouchg CrashPlan.app # this removes the user immutable flags
