Macintosh Lion: Uninstalled the Lotus Notes

tjie asked

1) It is in the enterprise network environment
2) It is related to the MacBook Air with the Mac OS X Lion
3) I install the Lotus Notes (version 8.5)
- It works well
-  The employee can receive and send her email, etc
4) There is a problem with Safari (it can not access the internet)
5) Accordingly, I install the "google chrome"; and the above laptop is NOW able to connect to the internet with the google chrome
6) The problem: Now, the lotus notes can not be launched
7) My question: How to uninstall this lotus notes version 8.5 properly? (The lotus notes experts will possibly help?) (Note: I have experienced to uninstall lotus notes in the windows environment; it is not ONLY from Add/Rem program; we have to do from other locations also)
8) Thank you

You can use the installer to install, repair or remove Notes.



1) Do you know how to do it manually?
2) In Microsoft Windows, I usually do the followings:
- Remove from Add/Rem program
- Then, at least I also delete the "Data" folder
- Then, i search for "notes.ini" whether it is still there or no --> If i find it, i will delete it
- Finally, I restart ....and start "fresh installation" again
- One time, I experienced that i just deleted from Add/Rem program ....and the cache still there ....it created me a lot of trouble

3) So if you are able to show it manually, it will be very helpful
4) Thanks
