    Hello friend,

    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say...............................

    1.Firstly open the Finder application.

    2.There you search for the software which you want to remove and then try to move them to the trash.

    3.If still have the problem then it can be the problem of the virus.

    4.So you install the best antivirus software and then use it.

    5.If that is also not your problem then this is the problem of the OS.

    6.So you try to get the CD of the OS and then install it by formatting the previous.

    All the best..................................

    Then in the Top left .. you will find the
    "" FINDER "" .. you just click it

    Now select the
    " Applications " .Browse through the Applications directory until you locate the Folder for the PROGRAM that you want to Uninstall

    So now Drag the PROGRAM FOLDER to the
    "" TRASH ICON "" on the " OS X APPLICATION DOCK ""

    Now click the
    Spotlight on the Top Right corner of the OS X desktop

    Trag the Files to the
    TRASH .. from the Search option
