    I have a MBPr 2015 that I just purchased not too long ago. I've never used macs before now and just took the plunge. I installed a program called Graboid which I thought I'd find useful but didn't so I went to remove it. I read online how to delete a mac program by dragging it from applications to the trashcan. I did this however the annoying parts of the program are still there. Keeps giving this little "Download" popup over any video. I'm trying to read on my sports forum and it is blocking messages. Plus it really annoys me that I went to delete something and it's still there. One of the reasons I went to mac was to avoid these "windows" annoyances. So what must I do to delete everything about this program? I've been reading and apparently it isn't malware it's just crapware. Are there any good uninstallers that maybe will do the job better? Should i reinstall the program then use some other type of program to uninstall it? Or if there's a list of steps I'll follow them. Frankly I hate this company.

    A guy called Linc Davis is especially knowledgeable about stuff like this over at Apple Support Communities, have you posted there too?
    Welcome to the Mac World, (you will find it also has annoyances though).

    You could try CCleaner. CCleaner will remove Graboid on Windows, so hopefully CCleaner for OS X will do the same.

    I haven't tried the OS X version myself yet, as I generally keep that side clean in the first place.
