    Cannot Deleted 3 softwares
    I must have downloaded Google Chrome from 3 rd party on web, I did that for a reason then uninstall it. When I m done and trash the Chrome, I found 3 software ( pictures below ) had been downloaded with chrome, I tried to put in trash bin, it goes back to screen so I put it in safe mode and does the same thing. Thought if I had known I would try to trash those 3 before trashing Chrome.
    Now I need help.

    Open up a Terminal, type the following:
    Code:
    rm -rf
    (There's a space at the end of that command after the -rf). Second, drag the app you want removed to the Terminal window (do this one at a time). Third, press enter and voila.

    Note: make sure that you drag the right apps - there is no confirmation using this method.

    Thanks

    I think I got it, Instead of using Terminal, I went to Finder and click user name then Applications then right click to Trash Bin one at time... viola then restart. Hope it stays that way
