OS X :: Applications Keep Uninstalling Automatically On MBP

Jun 16, 2009

Several applications on my mac keep uninstalling themselves, even whilst In use. For example: I was using firefox, then navigation bar seemed to lock up, so I quit Firefox, then it removed itself from the dock bar - I looked in my applications folder and it was no longer there? Had to download and reinstall to get it working again. Was using photoshop CS4, click 'save for web' and a popup told me it was unable to export as file didn't exist? So I saved my file i was working on, quit photoshop, looked in my applications folder and the entire CS4 package was missing?

To restore this, I opened Time Machine, and found that it had been missing for 3 hours, so restored the Adobe suite (7gb) and it now works again. This has happened to about 8 applications now, cyberduck, carbon copy cloner, adium, appzapper, automater, firefox, adobe? I've ran a disk check on my hard drive and all seems fine, no errors found. I'm also experiencing complete freezes every so often where I'm forced to hold the power button down to turn my mac off and then reboot it - all since this error started happening. I have a Macbook Pro, 17" 2.4ghz, 4gm ram running OS X 10.5.7

Software :: Finding And Uninstalling Applications On MBP

Dec 24, 2009

Can someone tell how to definitively find and remove software that has been installed on my MBP? I've recently tried connecting to my father-in-law's network, but to no avail. The guy from BT did a remote desktop to my MBP via a Citrix app called BT-GoToAssist, which seemed to install a couple of things just prior to running. Can anyone let me know how to find these and get rid of them? I don't like having things on my laptop that I don't use.

Applications :: Uninstalling Parallels And Related Stuff?

Jul 30, 2010

So I've installed a few applications here and there that haven't really worked like I wanted them to. I recently installed Parallels and I hated it. I deleted everything I could find but when I search "Parallels" in my finder a bunch of other stuff appears. Is that all related to Parallels, is it okay to delete them all, or not? The only reason it bothers me is because my computer used to shut down literally 5 times faster than it has been since I install Parallels. I think maybe that was the problem and if I delete everything I can find related to Parallels it will shutdown faster.

Nov 23, 2009

How in the world do I uninstall programs. I downloaded a program called DIVX and it was working for what I downloaded it for but it is nowhere to be found on my harddrive to uninstall it and it is not in my applications list. Does anyone know where it might be on my hard drive? But aside from that alot of programs that are in my applications list do not even have an option to uninstall. I use firefox but if I ever wanted to uninstall it there is no uninstall option, same goes for programs like AIM or Yahoo Messenger.

Applications :: Unable To Remove Ffmpeg Dependencies / Uninstalling Ffmpeg From Fink?

Jul 16, 2010

I used fink to install ffmpeg so I could convert some flvs I have to MP3s. Wasted at least 2+ hours to compile all the dependencies only to run into some problem where ffmpeg to throw out an error about flv being an unsupported video codec. I know it should have worked as I have done this on *nix systems before. I after fighting with it for an hour or so I broke down and am now using Audacity to rip the audio out (works too).

So I go to uninstall ffmpeg from fink, expecting all the dependencies to go along with it. Except only ffmpeg is removed. dkpg and/or fink will automatically remove/uninstall the dependencies. ATM I am too frustrated to want to waste more time on this, so I come here asking for help. Is there something I am doing wrong for fink and dpkg not to auto-remove the dependencies?

I was able to output all the dependencies to a text file (yay redirect output). IF worse comes to worse, can anyone help me throw together a bash or perl script to go through the text file and "fink purge <dependency>" for me?

Again I normally wouldn't be asking for help without working on the problem myself, but after wasting all that time for the dependencies and ffmpeg to compile, I'm just too angry to think straight.

OS X :: Uninstalling Programs On Mac?

Sep 6, 2005

I've just switched over from XP and have been problems with uninstalling programs off the Mac (osx tiger). In XP there would normally be a control panel which would show a list of programs on your computer which you could either modify or uninstall. There doesn't appear to be one in mac osx so I decided to drag the file from the applications folder to the trash. It appeared as though everything was fine until I ran a search in spotlight to still find some of the files still on my computer. I was uninstalling Limewire if this helps. I would like to rid my computer of everything associated to this program.

OS X :: Uninstalling And Then Recovering From Trash?

May 25, 2009

I was curious about something. If I was to take a Application from the Application area in OSX and drag it to the trash, it is uninstalled.

Now I've downloaded a program call Apptrap, so it will remove all of the associated files along with the program.

If I were to decide to put the program back in the Applications area of OSX by dragging it, how do I get the associated files back where they belong? I wasn't sure if the program would create new files once I started the program again or what. I removed a program and it had some associated files with it but I don't know where they went and have since deleted them.

What do ya do in a situation like this?

OS X :: Uninstalling And Reinstalling Mac Leopard - How To Know About It

Jun 2, 2009

1. Am I supposed to run any kind of disk maintenance (repairing permissions for example) prior to reinstalling Leopard?

2. Since all of my apps are going to be downgraded to its previous versions that originally came with Leopard installation DVDs, and my OS is going to be downgraded to 10.5.3 (I am on 10.5.7 at the moment), I am in a dilemma. Is it better to go with step-by-step update of Leopard (first download 10.5.4 and install it, than 10.5.5, etc...) or go directly to 10.5.7 from 10.5.3 (I think combo update is all about that, correct me if I am wrong)

3. About all the apps that go with Leopard (iTunes, iMovie, Quick Time Player)... Do you suggest me to update them as soon as I install 10.5.3 or to update to 10.5.7 first and then install all the application updates?

Windows On Mac :: Uninstalling XP BootCamp Partition?

Jan 22, 2009

I just bought a new Macbook Pro 2.4 and am looking at putting a copy of XP 32bit on there soon after I get it. However, Windows 7 is also looking pretty nice and since I'll be in college when it's released (I believe) I'll probably end up getting a copy. So, I was just wondering: How easy is it to get rid of a, say, XP boot camp partition? And when you do get rid of it, does it delete all your files and such? Anyways, just looking for some insight on the topic, have been using macs for a long time but this will be the first Intel one.

OS X :: Uninstalling Programs And Clearing Up Space

Jul 9, 2009

I am new Mac users so I am trying to find alternative programs to the once I used under windows. Some are ok some I 'move to trash' and look for easier to use. When I don't need program anymore I 'move to trash' the program in my applications. Is that enough? I know mac is different, but under windows you needed to run several cleaning programs regularly to clean up all the bits and pieces left behind.

ITunes :: Uninstalling And Reinstalling 1password?

May 20, 2012

Soon after reinstalling  Snow Leopard (10.6.8) on my Macbook after a crash, I noticed that my iPhone calendars and contacts were no longer syncing with my mac. After a few days, iTunes would not even recognize my iPhone when I plugged it in. I followed a couple of apple troubleshooting documents and things got worse, to the point where a newly installed iTunes would not start up.In the crash report, I noticed that iTunes was trying to load the 1Password Input Manager, a file left over from an old version of 1Password. Running the 1Password uninstaller, downloaded from their site, and reinstalling 1Password fixed all the above problems.

Software :: Uninstalling Apple Support And Updates Possible?

Dec 23, 2010

I operate Windows xp on Gigabyte Motherboard, Intel Dual Core Processor. I want to uninstall the following software from my computer:
1. Apple Application support v 1.3.2 - 44.50MB
2. Apple Mobile Device Support v - 20.13 MB
3. Apple Software update v - 2.26 MB
4. Bonjour - 1.10 MB

These software show up on my Revo Uninstaller Pro. When I try to uninstall (e.g. Bonjour) a Windows Installer box appears which reads: "The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable" with two buttons 'OK' and 'Cancel' after this line. Below this, another paragraph says: "Click 'OK' to try again or enter an alternate path to a folder containing the installation package 'Bonjour.msi' in the box below". Below, is a box titled "Use source:" In front of it is a button 'Browse'.

MacBook :: Uninstalling / Reinstalling Firefox - What About Updates

Sep 14, 2010

I have noticed that Firefox has been doing some weird things, random stuff that I don't even really understand how to even explain it. I am wondering if it is beneficial to just start over with Firefox....meaning, how do I completely uninstall and reinstall it? I have read that even when you do an uninstall process, that it keeps things on your hard drive. Can anyone explain (remember, novice terminology please) how to go about getting anything & everything related to Firefox OFF of my computer, then just reinstall it?? Also, on a somewhat unrelated note....when browsers get updates and we install them, am I supposed to go and uninstall the previous version? i.e.: new updates for Safari, iTunes, Firefox, iPhoto....anything?
