    I installed fan control 1.2 but strangely it doesn't show up in the applicatins folder or when I search for it in spotlight.

    How do I delete it? I want to install smc Fan Control instead.

    Find it and drag it to trash. It is likely in your downloads/Temp folder.

    Its not in the temp folder and I cant find it in spotlight!
    I found it in system preferences in the other section and I right clicked on it then went to remove fan control preferences pane

    It's really weird... when I set the RPM in smcFanControl to higher (5700) it goes up then it comes back down like something is stopping it... which is why I think it's still there!

    Control-click and choose "Remove XYZ preference pane".

    That didn't work either... I did a search on Google and found the developers site.

    The only way it can be deleted is by doing this:

    You have to find the .prefpane file and delete that. It should be in ~/library/preferencepanes
