    Techtool deluxe icon not going from Mac Launchpad even after deleting it

    Recently I went for the Mountain Lion upgrade in my Mac and now I donít want the TechTool Deluxe application anymore so I removed the files which was there from the Applications folder and tried deleting the icon from the launchpad and now it doesnít go at all but instead a ? icon is there in it. What should be done for this problem now? Can someone provide me the steps to overcome this issue?

    Now you need to force delete the icon from the Launchpad so that it will be completely removed from your Mac. Just follow the steps which are given below,

    STEP 1: Open the launchpad in your Mac.

    STEP 2: Hold the Option key (Alt).

    STEP 3: Now you will be seeing the (X) button above the TechTool app icon which you were not able to remove.

    STEP 4: Just press that and the icon will be deleted from the Launchpad automatically.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    If you have the deleting issue with Mac system then you need to close the kill
    all finder file which is running behind your Mac system.


    :: So first need to go to the dock.


    :: Then open the terminal window from it.


    :: Now here you type in the command Kill all Finder.


    :: Once this is open on the desktop then you have to delete the icon file again OK.


    Done.
