    Completely uninstall a Mac install with no access to server

    Rookie

      I recently retired from my company, who gave me my computer when I left. I now want to completely delete LANDesk. I should also note that I upgraded to Lion last week.

       

      I attempted to delete it by removing the Prefs panel, but I see now that there are files under Library/Application Support/LANDesk, including the BIN directory which contains the service files. I also see in Console that these are crashing, and I believe causing instability in my system.

       

      So the question, how do I safely uninstall LANDesk from my system, including all of the files contained in the above directory? I don't have access to the LANDesk server or the IT staff at my company.

       

      Many thanks for the anticipated help.

            Thanks so much! Ran it just a minute ago with the following results, so I think I'm good.
