    Specs:

    That should work. You didn't say what version of OSX, so we can't help with the exact steps, but in theory, restoring from before the two installs and then selectively restoring more current versions of your documents and pictures should get to a clean version of the system with those two offenders gone.

    Wouldn't it be easier to use the respective uninstallers?
