    Hey,

    I'm trying to remove Pando Media Booster from my Mac running Mavericks. It won't uninstall manually and I can't really find all the files by searching.

    I found a site recommending to use these commands in terminal, but naturally I wanted to check if they're safe, as I'm no expert in this regard:

    Code:
    sudo rm -fr /Library/Application\ Support/Media\ Booster/;
    sudo rm -fr /Library/PreferencePanes/MediaBooster.prefPane;
    sudo rm -fr /Library/Internet\ Plug-Ins/PandoWebPlugin.plugin/
    Would appreciate any help. (I intend to backup everything before I run them anyway, but would rather not have anything happen.)

    Yep all clear.
    sudo is to give you elevated privileges, rm is the remove command, -fr means force and recursive. and those directories are the panda media booster files.

    You could just go to those locations yourself and try deleting the files too, but ya.

    I did. I either couldn't find them or they weren't there.
