    Right at the top of this forum is a link titled Uninstalling Applications in Mac OS X. Have you taken a look there yet?

    Copy the app out of the dmg and put it in your application folder

    You drag them from the 'disk image' (that folder thats on your desktop) into your Applications folder.

    Then you delete the .dmg and eject the disk image, and run the application from your Applications folder.

    Download AppTrap. It's freeware and when you drag an application from the Applications folder to the trashbin, it gives you the option of deleting all files associated with the program.
