Tend to be there any kind of applications or even ways of totally removing just about all remnants of the program installed on osx? I have operate the look for the program that needed to get rid of (Pocket Mac pro) as well as erased exactly what arrived upward, I quickly proceeded to go to the library > applications (I believe this was) as well as eliminated 1 document which was inside as well as purged the trash can.

However this particular new software program I’m attempting to set up known as "Missing Sync" continues to be obtaining upon something left out through pocket mac professional and coming up this particular error information after I attempt to install the Missing Sync (see the image below).

To manually remove an application and all associated files, launch Activity Monitor and change "My Processes" at the top to "All Processes", then make sure the app you want to remove is not running. If it is, quit the process before proceeding.Launch Finder and search for the app name (hopefully unique, such as Skype). You can narrow the search to specific folders or search your whole Mac. Searching "File Name" vs "Contents" usually provides better results. Click the + button below the search term to add criteria. 

Click the search criteria drop-down and select "Other…", then "System files". Click the "don't include" and change to "include". Sort by name, kind, date, etc. to identify components of the app, such as folders, .plist files, cache files. etc. Delete all files and folders related to the app. 

Don't empty your Trash until you've determined that everything is working OK, in case you need to restore something you deleted by accident. A reboot might be necessary to completely remove some apps.

Missing Sync helps you get the most from the features of your phone. Sync and transfer contacts, calendars, notes, tasks, photos, music and more between your phone and computer. To successfully install Missing Sync go to: http://www.markspace.com/downloads.html
