    Remove Parallels from MacBook
    I recently purchased a MacBook and installed Parallels 5.0. It is not doing anything like what it is supposed to do and I wish to remove the entire program.

    Yet I cannot find any menu selection that states "click here to remove everything". Can someone explain to me (or point me in the correct direction) the process to remove the entire program?

    Thanks,

    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    My copy came with a "uninstaller.app" do you have that? check the disk you used to install the app.

    Yes, the installation disk did indeed have an "uninstall" link.

    It would have helped if I paid more attention when I was installing the program.

    Thanks to all for the assistance. The program was successfully removed.

    A little tip might I add,

    Every time I install an app, downloaded or hard copy disk. Look for the "uninstaller", make a folder in Docs call Uninstall, drag it there. Takes 2 seconds. I learned to do this because I eventually found out dragging .app's to the Recycle Bin doesn't always completely remove the app and its contents.

    Great tip! I'll put it to good use.
