    I have LION 10.7.4 running on an mac pro 2,1 - I thought I could upgrade to mountain lion, but was mistaken, in that, I seen the update for NTFS for mac come up, so I loaded it. - what! It is a sad tragedy! Made my mac useless! I cannot do simple functions, anytime I have my drives that are NTFS plugged in the mac slows down to a crawl. - Very frustrating.

    It was running fine on 9.5.3 or whatever the last build was. but when I tried to revert back, I still get the same crawl. - very sad, as it makes my mac unusable.

    How do I completely remove every hint of ntfs for mac, (without crashing anything) and get back to the place where it was working so so wello_O

    I want to cry in the fetal position when my mac has a hiccup like this, I have dozens of terabytes worth of clients data that is mission critical for me to keep accessible and backed up. - SO that part is good, what is bad, is that I cannot get to my clients data at all now.

    Please help oh Paragon Genius Genie in the bottle!

    :D

    If you are looking to uninstall the NTFS for Mac software simply open the folder containing the download and within the software there is an uninstall feature.

    I to have a similar circumstance. I have a iMac 27" 2.8 GHz i5 running version 10.7.4 with a recent upgrade to NTFS for Mac 10.0.

    In my case, I am attempting to back up to an NTFS formatted external drive, and where successful in the past, I cannot complete the task now. Since the upgrade to NTFS for Mac 10.0, when I mount the external drive, Finder’s CPU usage goes through the roof, and the system becomes unusable. If I try to un-mount the drive, I cannot. If I unplug the drive, then kill Finder in the terminal, then the system resumes normal behavior.

    If I disable the NTFS for Mac driver in System Preferences, then mount the drive, it mounts immediately and Finder behaves normally. Of course the reason I bought the Paragon Driver was to write to this drive. I hope your answer is more complete than simply uninstall NTFS for Mac and doing without.
