    Need help uninstalling or deleting downloaded app

    I have an imac and still a little new to it, hoping you can help me with a problem.

    I installed a program called "Alarm Clock 2" - I needed a program that can let me set multiple alarms throughout the day. I downloaded it and it's currently in my application folder. When I click on it to open, it doesn't seem to do anything. I tried to delete the application so I could reinstall, thinking I did something wrong in the install, I can't close or force quit the application. It says it's running but I don't see it being open in the Finder.

    Any help would be appreciated. THanks.

    Did you check System Preferences, Other, to see if Alarm Clock 2 installed an icon there so that you could access options? If you can't find it there, go to the developer's web site and look for information.

    Open up Activity Monitor (/Applications/Utilities) and see if you can find an Alarm Clock 2 process in that list. If so, quit it from there and retry the uninstall.

    When you downloaded the application no doubt it came in a .dmg file. You need to double click on that, and drag the application icon into the Applications folder, double click again to open it and set it up.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
