I've got a program that refuses to load. I re-installed it and it still won't load. I'm thinking I need to uninstall it but don't know how to do that.

Can anybody help?

Thanks in advance!

Unless it came with an un-installer, just dragging to the Trash will usually be enough. There will be a few stray files left so you might like to use something like App Cleaner or App Delete which will find and delete those files.

That is if it is not Macdefender, Mackeeper and others. If you have problems trashing it, post program details for further help.

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!
