The Freeware version or the Shareware version?

Try Macintosh HD -> Users -> YourHome -> Library -> Input Managers

if you've still got the dmg, theres an unistaller inside it. if not, download it again...

May also exist in:

Macintosh HD -> Library -> InputManager - best to check both locations.

ok i found it, but there does,nt appear to be an unstaller there so i tried deleting it.

But of course i can't delete something thats in use??

Tried app zapper but no use?

EDIT:I redownloaded the app also.

hmm, the developer used to include an unistaller. bad, naughty developer!

anyhoo, drag the damn thin into the trash, then click and hold down the the trash icon til the little menu with empty trash appears. then hold down option, and selected empty trash. it should delete it even if "its in use." btw, you're not trying to trash it while you got safari open are you?

Keep Safari closed. The Saft Plugin is either in:

Macintosh HD / Library / InputManager

or

Macintosh HD / Users / Home / Library / InputManager

In either InputManager folder, you should find the Saft Plugin - yes?

Secure Empty Trash often works if it's not really in use. Otherwise, log out and log in again.
