    I recently installed Clamscan on my iMac, didnt like it, so I removed it....or thought I did. A few minutes ago, I opened iStat to check the Processes running, and there it was, Clamscan.
    I opened the Applications Folder, and the program is not there. I did a Spotlight search for Clamscan and found lots of Document and Text files for the program (no application file). do I get rid of this program and all the garbage it left behind when I dragged the application file into the trash?
    Any ideas? Thanks.

    Look on the web for an app called AppCleaner, next time you don't like an app you should delete it with AppCleaner. It will look all over the computer for related files and ask you to delete them to. Works for me.... cool

    AppZapper is another option and one that I've used with excellent results.

    AppTrap too. it's a System Pref pane that you never have to mess with; it just leaps into action when you move an app to the trash, finds the app's associated files, displays them in a dialog and asks you if you want to delete them or leave them where they are. couldn't be simpler.

    (and this is still true even though it's been three years since this thread was started. :eek:)

    You might try this method to completely delete an app.
