If you are trying to uninstall an application that cannot be uninstalled by dropping it to the trash, and it was installed using Apple`s Installer, you might try the following:

  1. Double-click the installer file to begin a new installation.

  2. Pick File Show Files from the menu.

  3. Check out the list of files it will install, and then delete them in the Finder.
