    Can anyone recommend any software that will remove old program files for applications that have been deleted through Trash?

    Recently upgraded to Lion and removed a few bits of software I don't need but know there's stray files in Library/Application etc and wondered if there's any software that can highlight redundant files and remove them?

    Thanks

    i'm not sure about the above. I switch from AppZapper to CleanMac or something. I guess I just install good software nowadays, or software I know I'll use.

    Well i had Office 2011 and decided to put iWork on now that it has more Lion compatibility, so I want to remove Office and know what MS are like, so want to know its completely removed.

    I'll check those two you mentioned out though.

    AppZapper is not as effective as the manual method.
