Hello,

What is the best way to totally remove a program, and all of its parts, from a Mac ?

Just go to the Finder and delete it, or...?

I realize it's not like in Windows, where you use regedit.

Thanks,
Bob

1. Uninstaller if it came with the programme.,

2. Drag to Trash.

3. Run a cleaning program as weasel suggests to remove all those 'left overs'. AppCleaner v. 3.4 is great and shows what ityis eliminating by way of associated and left over files.
