    I have an alias for Appcleaner in my Finder sidebar that doesn't work. I can't click on it, and i can't remove it, and it's REALLY starting to bug me. I tried to fix the alias by locating the app, but i get an error. What do i do?!

    Edit: When I attempt to to fix the alias, I get this-
    An unexpected error occurred (error code -8060)

    The most effective method for complete app removal is manual deletion:
