Uninstallers (a very short look at what I've tried!)

<< < (7/7)

A postcard from Macland:

Installing and removing software on OS X is easier and cleaner than on a PC - you generally just drag the program into your Applications folder to install, and uninstalling just requires dragging the program out of your Applications folder and dumping it in the trashcan.  However, having only very recently moved to the Happy Isle of Macland, and having for years had a Windows registry bowing under the heavy weight of a long history of installed and removed programs, I've wondered if drag-uninstalling was removing everything.  And then I heard of Appzapper this weekend (in this discussion of the Top Ten Most Beautiful Mac Apps:  It's not only a pretty face, though it certainly is that: start it up and you get a dropbox by means of which you can uninstall any program by simply drag-n-dropping its icon onto the dropbox - Appzapper lists all the elements of the program scattered around your system, and then you just click Zap and it removes all traces of that program.  It's a brilliant, easy to use interface, and it's even quite fun to uninstall things, because the screen momentarily flashes and there's a little zapping sound.  Highly recommended for Mac users!

I use smarty uninstaller...
it takes quite a while to remove all the stuff but it is very thorough. I like it better than the few others that I tried before.

I use Uninstall Tool:
Really quick and useful. Portable and freeware. Enough for me.
