mac cleaning software?

is there a good mac cleaner to clean up any unwanted, uneeded files from instalations? Because i know some software does install and leave behind junk when you uninstall because when i got rid of photoshop trial there was still all this photoshop stuff lying around. So im looking for a good cleaner to get rid of unwanted , uneeded files! thanks!

Monolingual for getting rid of other languages you wont need: http://versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/13031

I know there is another tool that was just relases lately that helps remove everything at one time when you remove it. But if you basically do a Spotlight search for Photoshop, you can just delete everything it finds that deals with what you had installed before.

Long Lost Apple Feature!

Appzapper!
All you will need... it does a wonderful job and really is what Apple is missing in the OS!

I use Onyx and the Finder for general cleaning.

When I need to remove software, I use AppZapper.
