Removing ABBYY FineReader Express
To remove the program:
1. Open Finder>Applications.
2. Find the ABBYY FineReader Express application.
3. Holding down the left mouse button, drag this folder onto the Trash icon in the Dock, or just click Move to Trash item in the ABBYY FineReader Express application contextual menu.

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

Thanks Bob... I did that before I posted and it was gone from the Applications list. However, I noticed that it was still listed as a DEVICE on the left side of Finder. After further fooling with it I notice an 'Eject' option which I used and it is now gone. So, I'm thinking that maybe it is completely off my drive.

That would have been the .dmg file you downloaded which installed the app.
All apps that come wrapped in a .dmg will need to be ejected after the app is installed.

Think of a .dmg file the same as you would a CD in Windows.
After the installation, you need to eject the CD (or .dmg).
