    Some apps come with an uninstaller, (usually in the same folder as the app, or in a subfolder) and others you just drag to the trash (these are the ones that you usually drag onto your Applications folder to install them)

    Thats what I do

    Or if you're desperate you can do a spotlight search to kill all the files and folders associated with the app.

    If it's specifically CS3, then I'm pretty sure there's an uninstaller.

    I've had a lot of luck with AppZapper, which also searches for related plug-ins, files, preferences, etc. that are not stored in the Applications folder. Helps to keep your system "clean".
