    How do I remove BootChamp from OS-X
    I down loaded BootChamp (not Boot Camp) thinking it was a fast and easy way to switch between my two OS' (OS-X and Win7). Turns out it really doesn't work that well. I've looked in the applications folder but I don't see the app.

    So my question is how do I delete it from my system?

    Go into Utilities and startup Bootcamp. Hit continue on page one and page two will have a radio button for uninstall Bootcamp. That is all their is to it. Sounds like you need Parallels or a similar program.
    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!

    Not familiar with BootChamp.... however, does it place an icon in the System Preferences Panel "Other"? If it does, you may be able to uninstall it from there.

    BTW, the only boot menu IMO that works well is rEFIt. I've tried many (not BootChamp though) and rEFIt was the only one that consistently worked and was configurable.

    Bummer, I must be doing something wrong, neither suggestion worked. First when I open the Utilities Folder in the Applications folder then attempt to open Boot Champ, Boot Champ actually starts starting the Win7 partition.

    And when I looked in the Preferences folder Boot Champ isn't displayed in the Other section.

    If you have any other suggestions, I'm game.

    Cheers

    Actually I did some weeks ago and he never responded. I used Finder and found it and moved it to a trash can. There were no other options.

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    If you have trouble with any of the remaining preference an d other files, perhaps a re-install and the trash whilst AppTrap, a free utility, is running to remove all the files.
