Just drag and drop the program/software to the trash.Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, It's about learning to dance in the rain!

You could also use sherlock to search for all the files by just typing the name of the program in, deleting the files and then type the name of the program makers in and do the same. Make sure that you don't delete anything from other programs, If your not sure then leave it where it is. The only benefits of doing it this way is that you get rid of the extensions and preference files from the program. Rmans suggestion is just as good and easier.

Well isnt there an uninstall file that gets installed with the software itself.
I know windows does it and it also i appears in the add remove programs
I know mac doesnt have an add remove program. But i thought there was an uninstall file that came with the instalation or that was on the CD
