I have installed Logic Pro 9 and all the updates on my macbook but it really struggles to run and is way too complicated for me so I want to remove it and sell it.

Problem is, I can't find a way to completely remove it from my macbook.
I have found instructions dotted around but they all seem to damage garageband which I don't want to do

Can anybody tell me how to completely remove Logic Pro 9 without damaging any other apps

    You can deinstall it entirely and then just reinstall GarageBand from the original disk that came with your Mac.

    Your GarageBand songs will remain unaffected by the process - though, as always, if you don't keep a meticulous back up of ALL your data at ALL times, the joke's on you if the disk fails or something else goes catastrophically wrong during the process.
