    when you remove/delete something from Mac OSX you have to then empty the trash.

    This also applies to USB sticks/external hard drives-the memory you fill up won't show/change until you empty the trash.

    You can empty the trash by using the key command shft+cmd+bkspc or by going to the dock, its the bin in the right hand corner.

    Hope that helps.

    Stuff sometimes doesn't disappear until after a reboot. If emptying the trash didn't solve the problem, try a reboot.

    no! But I has finally solve the problem. So for other people who may it be has or had similar problem. Problem wash t by day-o application and wrong delete it. I did install a LAUNCHPAD CONTROL. And from some reason after deleted day-o, the day-o icon still launchpad control remembered and for that still was in launchpad. I deleted launchpad control from application folder and the day-o icon disappear too ;)
