    I don't think the two bottom things listed on this screenshot belong there...can someone confirm and help me DELETE these?

    Isn't that just Yujimbo and Togerther? Do you have those installed?

    I uninstalled them, but they are still showing up in there for some reason. I found some files in my Library that I deleted but I must not have deleted everything...where do I look to delete the rest of the files?

    Have you looked in the Preferences folder both in the System Library and in your User Library for files with those names? And restarted after deleting them?

    Yes I did that as well, in BOTH libraries.

    I even have typed the keywords and those items into spotlight and nothing comes up.

    Is there some Preferences Prefs file that needs to be discarded?

    I thought that when you removed a program from a Mac it removed all the files along with that program. Every time I remove an unwanted program it seems to leave garbage behind everywhere! I don't call that COMPLETE removal and I don't see how Apple can call that complete either. Perhaps there is a program out there that will delete the ENTIRE contents of a program when you decide to delete it.

    It's strange that deleting those files doesn't help. You don't have another mac with those apps either?


    There is! I use AppCleaner, but I know there are others aswell.

    I have another Mac but it does not have those apps on it.

    Thanks for that AppCleaner, I am going to use that from now on.

    Thanks for giving me help and ideas on this problem, I appreciate it.

    Here is the link to the Together app that I downloaded and Yujimbo is an app just like it, organizing app, though you may already know this.

    Perhaps I can install this again and then open up the AppCleaner and it will delete everything...I will give that a try.

    Have you made sure that the preference files haven't been synced to that machine, even though the apps themselves haven't been installed?
