I'm a new mac convert, albeit have been using computers since their inception. One thing I don't care for is a healthy advertisement for an App, which tells you all of what it will do, works precariously to do a few things but wants into your wallet to finish off. To me, that's just extortion, and I don't care whom puts out that App, but it's delegated to the trash bin with regard to those tactics. With that said, using my old PC i easily knew where to go to 'uninstall' but on the Mac I'm not finding that same solution. One App 'Mackeeper' I installed was suppose to clean out my system (thought I'd give it a quick try) but again, it wants $$ to 'finish'...so is destined for the trash bin. I went into "Launchpad" and I see it there, but dragging it to the trash bin isn't working, as it pops right back to it's original location on the screen? Thus the question, on how to rid myself of these pesky apps? if an Application tells me from the get go, that there is a cost...I will consider my options, but if you download and it gives you a portion of it's abilities without telling me up-front...well, it will be deleted. i thought I'd ask what most Mac users are using for virus protection as well? On my PC I've used AVG "free" for years, without a single issue, but I'm not finding one for the Mac? I do have AVG Linkscanner installed, but is that enough? Thanks in advance, and if someone could advise me on other quality apps (don't mind paying if it's something I'd use often) mainly for browsing and mail purposes, it would be appreciated.
