Question: How to I delete leftover files?

So I downloaded Imobie's iphone backup software called Anytrans onto my laptop, and realized it wasn't the program I wanted. Upon deleting it, Anytrans is STILL leaving popup notifications on the upper right hand corner of my screen. The only thing is, they pop up spontaneously and appear to be written in some sort of arabic. Any way I can go in to the files of my computer and delete any malware/leftover files this program may have left on my computer?User uploaded file

There may be hidden files or other stuff left behind from a manual search

or due to inefficiency of an app remover. Those may not be able to tell a

system file from some kind of malware or adware.

These (two) products both run free ~ and were developed by longstanding

contributing participants of this Support community. 'Etrecheck' can remove

several bad things or parts of stuff you may not find otherwise, plus more. It

also generates a report that may be posted in these discussions for study:


A free version of malwarebytes for Mac can help find & remove other stuff:

Malwarebytes | Malwarebytes.com/Mac

While there are other similar products (or some that try & sound like the same)

these are worth the effort to read up on how to use them, and try them out.

Note 'tips for healthy Mac' in etrecheck page (on how to remove software) & etc


In any event...

Good luck & happy trails! 🙂
