Completely uninstall Apple Remote Desktop Admin
Authored by: chadvonnau on Jun 14, '13 11:51:48AM
I'm not sure what shell you were using when this worked, but this didn't work at all for me in Lion, using its default shell, bash. I simplified the script a bit and trimmed some paths that didn't seem to be used any more with ARD 3 & Lion.

#!/bin/sh
#this will uninstall ARD admin and all it's components so you can reinstall 

sudo rm -rf /Applications/Remote\ Desktop.app;
sudo rm -rf /System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement;
sudo rm -rf /System/Library/CoreServices/Menu\ Extras/RemoteDesktop.menu;
sudo rm -rf /Library/Application\ Support/Apple/Remote\ Desktop;
sudo rm -f /Library/Preferences/com.apple.ARDAgent.plist*;
sudo rm -f /Library/Preferences/com.apple.RemoteDesktop.plist*;
sudo rm -rf ~/Library/Application\ Support/Remote\ Desktop;
sudo rm -f ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.RemoteDesktop.plist*;
sudo rm -rf /var/db/RemoteManagement;
