    OK. First of all, I am enjoying Elementary. I think it's great. I'm a linux newbie but glad I decided to give linux a try. That being said... it's confusing sometimes...

    Tried to download a game via PlayOnLinux and failed. However, during the process it put a Windows application in my "Applications" in the top left corner. "Microsoft .Net Framework 1.1.."

    Please tell me how do I remove this from my computer? I don't want it to hurt my computer, and it's upsetting everytime I see it. I don't want to try to use PlayOnLinux ever again. I just want that Microsoft app OFF there. I tried to use Google for an answer and couldn't find anything.

    First uninstall playonlinux from the appcenter, thenlinux next open the file browser, right click and show hidden files. scroll down and find either .playonlinux or .wine. Remove them.
