    Hi all,

    Might seem like a strange question but how do you guys uninstall your apps on your Mac? Say for instance you wanted to uninstall iMovie or anothr Program like Spring Clean, do you just drag the whole folder to the bin or do you use a thrid party application that has its own built in installer.

    I ask because sometimes i find loads of little bits and bytes of old programs that i had removed way back (months!).

    Drag it to the trash and do a quick search for the filename to see what's left over, then trash them too.

    A select group of apps (Norton and Office amongst them) need an uninstaller though. :(

    I drag the icon out of the Applications folder into the trash, and then do a search for any remaining bits (Spotlight helps with this sooooo much).
