    Use this:

    ^^The best uninstaller for the Mac bar-none

    You might have to reinstall desktoptopia IOT re-establish the application paths for it to uninstall properly. In other words, install Clean-app first so it is able to log the reinstallation of desktoptopia...then delete it.

    clean app couldnt find it

    its not even in my pref pane anymore so clean app didnt find it ...its only on my toolbar thingy up at the top of the screen... it has a line through it, but its still there..does this have anything to do with cache files?

    reinstall the app, then go download a app remover, like appdelete, app zapper, or the one the other poster mentioned. all of them work. then clean out the app.

    thanks mike! if you really like my videos, please subscribe if you have an account. anyway, yes I do. I don't use them a lot, but have always been tech geeks for friends who need garageband or iweb for a new website. it's illegal to talk about torrents here on the MR forums, but no rules against PMs. :D no problem.
