    Deleting Applications (Appzapper and the like)
    I am currently using Appzapper to delete applications that I have downloaded and tried. It is ok, but does not delete everything that comes with an app. Are there other tools that would be recommended?

    Try a search of the forums. Lots of suggestions.

    Specs:
    Mac's
    What is it that is being left behind?

    I use CleanApp.... there is also App Delete, and many others... really though any files that might be left behind aren't going to cause any problems.

    Specs:
    MacBook Pro 15". 2.4GHz. - 2GB RAM. - 60GB HD@7200 rpm.
    None of them totally clean out files (especially those from app's in system preferences pane). I settled on AppZapper. While AppZapper will usually trash most files (if not all), "spotlight" will find the file or two that remain. Just take a minute to drag those few files to the trash, and be done with it.

    Yes, thanks, thats what I've been doing. Its actually a good way for me to learn about the Mac, to have to delve through differnet folders and directories,

    I use a combination of dragging to the trash and a quick spotlight search. Seems to work :-)
