I know this sounds dumb, but I can't find a answer that makes sense. Just a brief explanation please

    I'm still not sure what it's used for. What is a cluster? And when would you use this?

    A cluster is a set of computers which are linked to each other for the purpose of speeding up the execution of a specific task or tasks, such as rendering video content. Qmaster distributes the load between those computers.

    I am running an Intel iMac which I set up using migration from a G5 iMac. I have old versions of Compressor, DVD Studio Pro and Qmaster for PowerPC that came over from the G5. I don't really use them and I think the Qmaster in Startup items (dated 2004) is causing me issues, generating a lot of error messages in the Console during startup.

    How do I uninstall these things? OK to just throw in the trash or is there a better way?

    thanks
