Powerchute removal

Hello,

Can anyone tell me how to remove the Powerchute software from my iMac (OS 10.4.11)?

Thanks

I found this on the APC website.

A shell script is provided on this disk image that allows an
Administrator to stop all related processes, and remove all
files, associated with this software. Note this item is not
installed, it remains on the disk image after installation.
You might want to contact them for help. They have an online chat you could try.

APC Powerchute Issue

I had the same issue - I installed it from disc only to find it didn't work on Intel Imac. There is an uninstall command on the disk though and that seemed to work.

OK, just to confirm the latest software you downloaded was PowerChute Personal version 1.3.4 right? I'm just trying to help trace this down as I have that version running on one PPC machine with 10.4.11 and two Intel based Macs with 10.5.6 with no issues so wonder what the heck the difference could be if we are running the same APC software....
