    Hi,
    Mozy online backup runs on startup even though I disabled it to run on startup through System Preferences>>Users.

    Also, I made the horrid mistake of installing Limewire, and now it refuses t uninstall by dragging to trash. How do I manually uninstall it? Thanks!

    The only time I've had trouble "uninstalling" was when the app thought I didn't have adequate permission authority to delete it. I logged off my individual user name account, logged in as "Administrator," and was able to trash the files. Incidentally, you should be using the free AppCleaner to get rid of apps. It's tidier, and with a naughty app like Limewire, I'd want to be "tidy."

    Hi there,

    Drag the main icon to the trash and also go to your Library > receipts and delete the file there.

    You also may need to delete a preferences file.

    Hope this helps.
