Did you drag the app to the trash?

Did you look in System Preferences for it?


If you dragged the app to the trash, you need to re-download it, re-install it, then use the uninstaller that is packaged with it.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

edited post above - see it.

General rule of thumb:
Never drag applications to the trash that you didn't drag to the application folder to start with.
Any apps that use an installer / ask for your password to install should also have an uninstaller.
The reason for installers is that they are often putting files into the system folders and their uninstaller needs to be run to remove all of those files.
