    Does anyone know a really good app for either uninstalling apps or clearing out all bits and pieces left behind after uninstalling an app

    Thanks for the recommendation. I guess I get 5 free uses before deciding if I want to purchase. Thanks again!

    Here is a link for the best way to fully delete a program by GGJstudios.

    App Cleaner is another alternative.

    +1 for AppCleaner. None of this apps clean the leftovers fully, though. In most cases you have to finish the process manually using software like EasyFind and deleting the found, relevant entries.

    app zapper does a fine job of deleting the leftovers like cache, library and other odds and ends..

    I use these instructions, and then I've also instructed Hazel to clean up leftovers.

    None of these dedicated apps clean completely the leftovers. And both of these software do exactly the same thing and pick the same files.
