I downloaded some software to try and resolve a problem on my iMac ( loaded with OS Mountain Lion).

The software didn't work, and I want to uninstall it from my Applications. However, when I try to move it to Trash, I get a message that I cannot do so because the application is open. However, when I checked this, I could not find any trace of this application being open - it does not come up at all in Force Quit.

Can anyone suggest how I can remove this application from my computer?

Thank you

Start Activity monitor and check if you see a process in the list that looks like the application you want to remove. Kill the process!

Or restart your computer and try removing the app again.

You should read through the first 3 posts.

Installing and uninstalling applications

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
