    Does anyone have a solution for uninstalling the latest version of Inquisitor for Safari?

    All my searches either mention that it's hiding in a folder that I don't seem to have, or that the installer includes an 'uninstall' option which I can't for the life of me find, it just insists on reinstalling itself over and over. :confused:

    Any help would be much appreciated. :)

    Aaah that's the mistake I was making. Didn't realise it had to be from root, I was trying to find it in the Library for my User account :eek:

    Thanks for clarifying. :)

    It used to be in the users library folder but as of 10.5 it won't work in that folder anymore. ;)

    Here are some more detailed uninstall instructions for Inquisitor.
    The files you need to trash to get rid of Inquisitor completely are the following:

    Inquisitor.bundle (in Library/InputManagers/Inquisitor/)
    Inquisitor folder (in "user=you"/Library/Application Support/)
    inquisitor.pkg (in Library/Receipts/)
    inquisitorPreflight.pkg (also in Library/Receipts/)
    inquisitor folder (in Library/InputManagers/)

    Thank you, byakuya, for that help. I, too, tried Inquisitor and hated it. I'm glad to have Google back.

    Did you look in /Library/InputMangers? It's not in ~/Library.

    Not sure I understand why since one of the selectable options for Inquisitor is to use the Google search engine! :p

    Safari -> Preferences -> Search -> Inquisitor -> Search Engine:

    Regards.
