    Hi All--

    Can I uninstall a program (such as Parallels 3.0) by simply deleting it? I can't find the disc to go through the proper way of uninstalling it. Does this mean that I'll end up with a bunch of little files somewhere in my machine because I'm not doing the official uninstall process?

    THanks,
    Greg

    You can download the package online and run the uninstaller from there.

    yes do what Eidorian suggested. parallels installs a lot of library files and hidden files. you can remove the virtual OS by deleting the parallels folder in your documents folder.
