    I downloaded the free trial of a program called "Snaps Pro X" for taking screen captures. To make a long story short, it won't move to the trash can. It says the application is open, but I can't quit it. Unlike most programs, the menu bar doesn't change when I am using it, and there is no quit button in the app. Suggestions?

    Make sure it's not in your user's Login Items/Startup items in the System Preferences, log out and log back in.

    Command-Click on the icon in your menu bar, and drag it to hell.

    Then restart your computer and try again.

    If you have Panther, it's in the Accounts PrefPane.

    If you have Jaguar, it's the Login Items prefpane.

    Okay. I found where my startup items were listed, and it was there, so I removed it from the list. I logged out, and in, then I was able to drag it to the trash. That was a mean app.

    BTW, yellow, you answered my question in less than a minute! That's gotta be some kind of a record.
