    If this is applications that you used an installer to, well, install... then very often that same installer will work as an uninstaller. Run the installer again and see if there's not an uninstall options somewhere along the way.

    Alternatively you could search for the apps using Spotlight (if you have Tiger, regular cmd-F in Finder if not).

    most of the time you can drag and drop. find where the app you downloaded is saved to and then just drag and drop it to the waste bin.

    I usually use spotlight to search for terms that relate to the name of the application or the company that made it.

    As for an uninstaller for typical applications you might like: http://appzapper.com
