    On OSX, you can just drag a program into the trash to remove it. There will be some config files left over, but those don't take up much space (a few kilobytes).

    If you want to remove those as well, there are uninstall apps out there such as AppCleaner and TrashMe. I recommend the former.

    toss it in the trash. if you want the .plist files gone you can use something along the lines of appzapper or other uninstallers to totally remove every little thing, but its hardly necessary.

    the problem i have is the application is not in my applications folder

    its only up on the topbar by my airport status, it has a drop down menu from there but there is no uninstall.

    Had the same problem as you but managed to figure it out.

    run app zapper (d/l it if you haven't got it) then copy your original Rivet installation file and paste somewhere. Now drag your original update file to app zapper and make sure you untick the reference to your copied file
    The run app zapper. Now it will be all gone and you can reinstall to your pre - updated version ;-)

    I know it's been a while, but did you ever get this figured out?

    Thanks.
