    Uninstalling Applications
    OK, So I finally made the switch last Thursday when my local Apple Store got the new iMac's in stock.

    My buddy over the weekend decided that he would "help me out" and installed some freeware applications on my shiny new iMac. One of them being Limewire.

    Now, I uninstalled the apps by just dragging them to the trash, and removed the new folders they put in my /documents folder. Do applications in a Mac leave any left over garbage like they do in Windows and if so, where should I start looking?

    Thanks,
    Ray

    There maybe some in your preferences folder.

    You can do a search on your hard-drive for anything relating to that application and just drag & drop into the trash.

    Sweet, well now I know how spotlight works. I did I spotlight search and it came up with a few items in my Pref's folder and some other odds and ends. I just selected them all and tossed them in the trash.

    Thanks!
