Software :: How To Uninstall System Programs Like Little Snitch
Apr 15, 2005
So far I haven't seen any uninstall options in all the software that I've installed, so if I were to uninstall programs that are linked to the Start Up list, how should I do it? Can I just delete them from the HD? Because for Windows, messing with files that are related to the registry or system can really cause big problems for the computer.
I have recently installed little snitch, later i prefer to uninstall that, because, whenever i open any application, immediately one notification window opens and asking about some TPC connection. see the photo. how to make to uninstall little snitch
I have an older MacBook with only 120 gp hard drive and am running out of room. I don't use some of the programs installed and would like to remove them but many don't have an uninstall program. Is there any trick to ensure all elements of a program are removed from the system?
I installed a program called Control! on my MacBook Pro running Lion 10.7.4. Nothing in my Applications folder but in System Preferences it's there under Other. How can I uninstall this or any other program that put itself there?
I downloaded it to my Mac (years ago!).. The Cover Flow option refuses to work with me, as rather than showing cover art for each album, it shows it for each song. This causes several duplicates showing up for each album, while browsing on Cover Flow only!I've gone through my Music - iTunes folder multiple times, cleaning through duplicates items and so on. I don't know if iTunes Libraries stored on my Mac is causing this (iTunes Database File).
It altered my helvetica font in a way that will cost me hundreds of hours re-kerning / resizing / repositioning text in CAD files for at least 10 large scale projects in progress at my architecture office.
This is an extremely serious & very expensive issue that has to be affecting all architecture firms who use macs the same way as it's affecting me & my business.
I'd like to uninstall SIMBL. The only plugin I've ever used is megazoomer, and it doesn't work for 64-bit applications, and I don't want to have to run them in 32-bit mode. I deleted the bundle from /Library/Application Support/SIMBL/Plugins, but aren't there any system-related files that need to be removed as well?
I'm not an expert on OS X, however recently I've been trying to spend more time with the system to learn and possibly switch from W7. The weirdest thing happened last night. I'm was trying to uninstall istat 3.0 from my system and it froze( the beach ball ). After force quiting it, i tried to start Word but the icon would only keep on bouncing and stop after a minute. No error message no nothing. I was sure it's an issue with Office itself, but no other software is starting. Mental Case, UnrarX, Excel, even Ponyvid, just bounce their icon around for 30-40 seconds and wont start. The only software that works are Apple's own Safari, Mail, Calendar , iPhoto and iTunes. They start normally with no fuss. I tried restarting and even creating another user account, and it didn't help. Is it possible that istat 3.0 blew something in the system? If so, what can it be? Anybody had this kind of situation before? Any fix on hand? What should I do next?
I have a MacBook, using iMac atm but my MacBook is running 50-60% system, 0.5-1.5 user, and i do not know why its using so much of my CPU... No programs are running except Activity Monitor... So I'm not sure whats going on, i have all the latest Airport, firmware and all that...
I'm pretty new to the whole MacBook world as I only brought my unibody MacBook in November. Although I've found everything to me incredibly intuitive there are still some thing I need to learn, such as what to do when thing start slowing down. Recently I have noticing a few programs having some difficulties, my Logic studio has been having System overloads, my dashboard hasn't been popping up and my Safari is feeling slower. On windows their was a variety of thing I used to try stop this (virus scan were a staple) but I just have no idea where to start on my MacBook.
I uninstalled LittleSnitch with Appcleaner but I still have the network icon on my menu bar. Every few moments I get a notification that LittleSnitch trial is over. I did a search through spotlight for "little snitch" and I get no results.
I've been running the Little Snitch demo for some time now and have been noticing that the links that it tells me are active are wrong. This is what I read when I hover my mouse over the icon in the menu bar.
For example I'm downloading the Aperture 2 manual now from Apple however Little Snitch says that Safari is downloading it from [URL] or something. Like what the heck?
No other webpage, download or application was using the internet at the time. Is it that Apple uses this address or is it that Little Snitch has gone crazy?
Just curious if anyone knows of a program with similar features to Little Snitch that is shareware.
This has probably been brought up in another thread already but I wasn't able to find the answer I was looking for. If you happen to know of that conversation it would be awesome if you could post a link to it.
Booted my macbook pro 2009 and the time was reset to 2001, a prompt asked me to change settings or else the computer might function erratically. So i changed the date and time settings as suggested but then suddenly it stopped working. I restarted the computer but i could no longer open any programs. My dock was gone, the screen background was changed back to the original and i couldn't access the system preferences. Every time i click on the apple icon the screen just refreshes and that's it.
My laptop hasn't been turned off for the last 48 hrs before this happened. i was working and uploading huge files to dropbox and since my Internet connection was really slow, i had to keep it on so it would upload continuously. Was thinking this might have caused some malfunction.
I am running OS X Mavericks 10.9.5 on an iMac 27" mid 2011. If I run OS X Recovery on my system just to wipe everything clean and start fresh. Will I also loose all my other Apps and installed software like MS Office, Adobe CS6, etc. etc.? If so, how can I do a system recovery without losing all my current apps or programs. I don't have any of the original disks.
A few days ago I installed a legit version of Little Snitch on my iMac. The program and the internet worked fine but the pop ups were just too annoying. I uninstalled Little Snitch using the uninstaller that came with the program, restarted my computer and then my internet was crippled. I could access the internet through Firefox and safari but all other programs were unable to access the internet, including a shell script that I embeded on my Desktop and Azures. After trying everything I could think of, including restarting and looking for /System/Library/Extensions/LittleSnitch.kext I re-installed Little Snitch and all my programs work fine. Any way to get rid of Little Snitch while keeping my internet working?
One of the features I mostly like about Little Snitch is the Alert Panel pop ups, which give me full control of what type of access is given to which applications. Here is the alert panel: I found that some users dislike it, and even some discussions were started on how to get rid of it. That's not my case today. My Little Snitch was working perfectly until I decided to upgrade my Macbook HD to a higher storage. I went to an authorized Mac store, which replaced the new HD into place and advised me to go back home and boot the MacBook with the installation disk pressing C.
Then, after installation, I chose to restore my files from the last Time Machine backup. However, after doing this it seemed that many applications including Little Snitch started to operate differently... as if I would be running them for the first time. So in addition to the automatic Time Machine restore, I went to a manual restore of applications and library items. When I tried to overwrite the files of Little Snitch on the Library folder, I was asked my Administrator password. Then after typing it, I received the message that I did not have sufficient administrator preferences................
