    Are you using Saucy Salamander (13.10)? If not you should ask questions like this in the General help section. What application is it? How did you install it?
    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.

    Have you tried:

    Code:
    apt-get purge sandboxgamemaker
    What error are you getting when you try to remove the application?
