    As the title states, it won't allow me to uninstall macfuse. :( Whenever I click on uninstall macfuse in the pref. pane, it seems to just check for updates and says "no updates available"

    it says "installed version 2.1.9"

    how do i get rid of it? :confused:

    Why not just right click (command+click) on the panel and click remove.. alternatively manually drag the MacFUSE.prefPane to the trash and logout/restart??

    didn't know if just right clicking on it and hitting remove actually uninstalled the app or just "removed it" from my sys. preferences.

    i was also unsure if macfuse.prefpane is the only file associated with it?
    based on this webpage (link) i see that there is also this file associated with it?


    I just wanted to be precautions before i removed something like macfuse. :eek:

    At the time, mine was the most recent free version available, after discarding/removal, the said prefPane ended up in my trash can like everything else. Usually any preference files left behind shouldn't auto load without the initial application anyway therefore shouldn't harm your system.

    After manually checking my preference folder for supporting files, non where discovered soo I'm willing to bet it'll be safe to remove the said panel manually or via CMD+click if you prefer.


    No harm in that at all! :)

    I also need to get rid of MacFUSE under Lion.

    One question:

    Where did it come from?

    I always write down what I install and from where I get it,
    I couldn't find any notes about MacFUSE!
    Did it come bundled with another App...?

    Thanks.

    (BTW: I never installed Chrome or anything from Google.)

    ----------

    I guess it came with Parallels Trial version and hadn't been removed when uninstalling it. Can this be...?
