Deleting a program?

I thought that when you drop a program into the trash that it deletes it? I just deleted Flip4mac but when I searched it in Spotlight there were still files on my computer! What do I do?

If you haven't emptied the trash, they may show up there (not sure). If that isn't what's happening, the files are probably just support files like preference lists. Just drag those to the trash to get rid of them.Sitting, waiting, wishing...

However if you wish to to remove every trace from your computer check out their Support Pages where it will tell you everything that was installed,then Delete and Empty Trash.Damien Healy

I'm a recent switcher with the same issue, so I picked up AppDelete a nifty little program that claims to clean up all the files left behind. So far i'm pleased, it seems to do a decent job."Some people never go crazy. What truly horrible lives they must lead" -- Charles Bukowski

I have tried both AppDelete and AppZapper on a friends computer and I prefer AppZapper because I feel the interface and options are much nicer.
Although AppZapper isn't free I feel its worth it.Brendan Welsh
