    Is there a way to do it? I'm trying to create a very small installation of OSX. Appcleaner won't delete some things because they are protected. Oh, and yes, I did try MRoogle. No luck. Thanks,

    Find the app you want to delete, do a Get Info on it, change the permissions so you have full access to it, delete it.

    Thanks for the quick response Matthew. I'll give that a try.

    I know that AppZapper has a check box that says something like "disable deleting Apple apps". There might be a similar preference in AppCleaner.
