    From MenuMeters FAQ:

    Q: How can I uninstall MenuMeters?

    A: If you want to remove MenuMeters from your system you can use the MenuMeters installer's "Uninstall" button to automatically remove the software. Alternately you can delete the "MenuMeters.prefPane" file manually. Once uninstalled you must logout and relogin to complete the removal of MenuMeters from your system.

    I can't find "MenuMeters.prefPane" file and I have deleted the installer file long back. APPCLEANER is not able to detect it. :(

    Should be in this folder. Note this is the main system library and not your user library folder.

    Code:
    /Library/PreferencePanes

    Probably because no-one ever thought to uninstall it :D

    Seriously, it's been my favorite app for like 10 years.

    Oh I think it is Horrible, I mean I used a Trial Version of iStat Menus and then since it expired and it was asking me to buy one I said let me first find out, search for something which is free and i thought of giving Menu Meters ! Jesus Christ ! Goodness Me ! It is such a Horrible APP with such a BAD UI uhhhh :eek:. It is ugly ! iStat Menus is so neat and short and being little it is so visually pleasing and appealing !

    So someone coming form iStat Menus, Menu Meters is eeks !

    Go to System Preferences, find MenuMeters at the bottom of the page, right-click/control-click and select "Remove...".
