    From my experience with my new Macbook, I realize that I cannot uninstall a software. I asked people from Apple and they said the beauty of a Mac is that once you delete an application, everything deletes with it.

    I found that not to be true because (and I cannot remember what application it was), I deleted once a software and reinstalled it, it kept my login information!

    So my question is, how can I completely delete a software making sure there is no track of it or files here or there.

    Thanks

    Removing the app itself removes 99% of the application. The leftovers can be found in the library>application support and library> preferences. There may be a few other places. Be careful though because erasing something by mistake could cause problems.
