    Do you have:



    1. Enough RAM to run program

    2. Enough space



    You can check this by clicking once on your disk, then hit Apple I, it will give you the info you need.

Steps to uninstall a program varies. Sometimes it is as simple as throwing the folder/application into the trash. Sometimes the program may create other folders/files throughout system (they may even be invisible). The best tool I have found for tracking these is a fully functioning piece of shareware called Pacifist which you can download at http://www.charlessoft.com/ , launch it then inside the program navigate to Library->Receipts->YourApp.pkg and it will show you what and where everything for that application is installed. Usually before going to this trouble I would check the documentation / website of the program to see if they already cover how to properly uninstall.

Ensure that your system is all up to date with System Updates and check the website where the program came from and see if anyone else if having any problems

The software you are running may not be compatable with leopard. Some programs that are older will only recognise the OSX10 Tiger operating system. I would uninstall the program and find a similar one that is compatable with Leopard.

Canon PIXMA MX870 Wireless Printer works with Snow Leopard OS?


The MX870 is compatible with Mac OS X, all versions. I think the CD that comes with the unit will have the Mac Snow Leopard drivers on it, but if not you will be able to download them here.

Software mac tuneup


Hey, I'm not mac whiz, but the best way to remove the software from the computer is to type in the name of the program in the finder search bar, and physically drag it into the trash and empty it. I called mac support about it, and now they are trying to be better with the uninstall aspect of their new programs, but there are so many more programs for tune up that could be compatible with leopard on the main website. 
Also every once in a while, you should zero out your free space (which is similar to defragment) by going to the finder menu next to the apple on the top left part of the screen, selecting the services submenu and then disk utility. It dosent matter which one you chose under disk utility. When that window opens up, you click on your mac hd icon on the left and then choose erase from the options on the menu. (THIS WILL NOT ERASE YOUR EXISTING INFO) Select the top option (Zero Out Deleted Files) and this will place zeros which will take the fragments of files left on your mac off. I hope this was helpful and good luck!
