    I reformatted my Hard disk before I installed leopard, of course I made a back up of everything important first. but there was one application that I forgot. it was some kind of application removal application. It was like app zapper, but it was free, and the icon was a wooden trash can. can anyone help me out and point me to the application or one that does the same thing for free?

    thank you very much. It's not quite what I used earlier but I'm sure this will work just the same.
    One question... How do I use it? the other one was an application, while this is a preference pane.

    With AppTrap, when you drag an app to the trash it will ask you if you want to remove the related files also. Click Yes/No and done.

    The app your thinking of AppDelete which is listed in the link below

    here's a few more from another thread With most of these you just install them like a normal apps and just drag the app to it ,the only one thats different is AppTrap were you put stuff in the bin first
