I have a progam called TVU but it is not in the application folder, rather most is in User/Shared/TVU network. I normally drag a program from the Applications foler to the trash but it is not there sonot sure in this case. How can I safely delete it?

Use a third-party application, eg. AppCleaner, AppZapper, CleanApp (and others). The benefit of using those is that they search the entire system for files related to the application and send the lot to the trash.

If your talking about the forum, and marking solved, there isnt any. People will know its solved once they read the thread.
And that is the biggest reason out there to post back and let us know it is solved.

And many thanks to you for posting back it is solved

Cheers

Well, yeah, except it's not noted what solved it from the choices presented.
...or how simple/difficult it was to do.
