    I have my spotlight set so only applications come up... but when I search for any program all these .jar files come up as applications.

    They are not applications and filed in the wrong folder. How do I make it so they do not show up? I've tried hiding my entire harddrive except for the App folder to show up but that means not being able to search anything.

    Click on "Show All", right click on one of those files that appear, then "Open Enclosing Folder". So now you know the folder they're in. Go to spotlight preferences and exclude that folder. I can't think of any other way but that should work just fine.

    Edit: .jar are indeed applications, java applications. Thats why they're listed in your search
