    Hello everyone!

    Got my new MBP, but like an idiot, I 'full transferred' all of my apps and files to it from my 12" PowerBook.

    Now I've got a whole buch of PPC apps on my MBP and want to know if there's a way to clean them completely off of my new Mac. Is it sufficient just to drag apps into the trash and empty it? Or is will this create a mess in startup and other processes?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Love the Mac!

    Start off by dragging and trashing the application. Then spotlight (cmd+space) for any files containing the application name and delete all of them.


    Bing Bang Boom. Clean uninstall.

    I BELIEVE dragging them to the trash should be enough.

    Try App Zapper. Works great and grabs every file related to the app you want to get rid of.
