I have a couple of questions, not all related to printer files.

 

1. I'm running an iMac with 10.5.8, approximately 5 years old. My Canon MX860 printer just died and I'm going to get a newer one. How can I get rid of ALL the files associated with it? 

 

2. I want to upgrade from Leopard to a newer OS. Since the machine is only used for internet access via Safari, the Mail program, writing an occasional document in Pages, and using iPhoto to store pictures, which OS should I choose? I'm thinking of taking the machine to a Genius Bar to have the upgrade done instead of doing it myself. 

 

Thanks. Joe.

1. I'd just delete the printer from Print & Scan list and reconfigure for the new printer. If you really want to delete the associated files use these instructions on uninstalling applications with Finder.

 

2. Depends on which iMac model you have. The ones that came with OS X 10.5.x can run the latest OS X but, you can't run any PPC apps with OS X 10.7 and later. You would probably need to upgrade the RAM to at least 2 GB minimum, 4+ would be better, to run any of the later OS Xs.
