    I am using a MBP with OSX 10.7.4, Intel i7. A while back I bought a Globe Tattoo stick and used it a few times. It was OK, but not of much use. I tried to find an uninstaller, but finding none, I simply deleted it from my apps folder.

    Now I notice two oddities.

    1. There is a text file remaining in my apps folder with the text
    /Applications/Globe Tattoo Broadband.app/Contents/Resources/XStartScreen.app/Contents" I have no particular concern about this, but it seems odd.

    2. I run Console to keep track of what is going on, and I noticed that I get a notice that "oucis does not exist" when there is an attempt to load Tattoo.

    I have attempted contacting Globe, but I may as well be discussing this with a rock. No useful advice.

    Has anyone else encountered this situation and was able to clean out the Globe app?

    You may also try AppCleaner or AppZapper :)

    I do appreciate the quick responses from both of you. I don't expect to use an app to clean up my system. I had just hoped there were users of the Tattoo app who had successfully removed the app. I prefer to do this in a self-help sort of way. I don't download apps unless I get them from the Apple App store or a few Adobe items. So it is really not necessary to get a "cleaner" app. Kinda like having my car detailed when all I really need is to wash the windows. Thanks so much for the suggestions. I'll keep trying to find a way to delete this Globe app.

    need help guys...


    i installed a Globe broadband tattoo stick on my mbp 13" early 2011 but it doesn't seem to work... i deleted it by simply moving it to the trash bin... did it really uninstalled by simply doing that? but when i shut down my mbp... it's taking too long while it used to shut down in 4 sec. before i installed the Globe usb stick... is there a way to bring back the shutdown time to 4 sec.?

    would appreciate any help from you guys.
