there are no silly questions...

Most mac aps can be dragged to the trash. In your case it sounds like the behavior of the mac has changed? Do you keep up with your updates? In any case you would be best served to learn more about the operating system to go into the library to remove the postgre elements that are causing you grief. There is a good book called Mac 911 for Tiger, if you have tiger? It will tell you about the hidden files in the unix underpinnings that are hidden from users.
This is the bigger part of your issue I expect. In any case, since this mac is new I am thinking you are better off re-installing your os and when done go to the apple at the top right corner, click on it and go down to the second choice: software update. Do this several times... by this I mean go back after each restart and do it again until there are no more updates left. You need to do this in any case so everything will run better and more securely...
Good luck. And remember to back up any important files, and any links in your browser as they will all go away...

uninstall postbooks user

I recently uninstalled postbooks for Mac. All files have been deleted with the uninstall program that was in the Xtuple folder from my system and I have deleted the login user "postgres" from my Systems accounts but the "postgres" user still exits when I turn on my computer. What can I do to get rid of the login user at my login menu?

Agreed

I removed the postgres "group" from System Preferences account, and looked in activity monitor, nothing, and looked in the Users folder, nothing.

The original answer in this thread, to reinstall the OS is outrageous, and shows a lack of respect for the more sophisticated developers who include uninstall applications to remove hidden files, leaving behind no trace of the application.

To others who read this thread: do NOT reinstall the OS and do NOT waste time learning UNIX hidden files. As soon as I get the correct answer, I'll post here.
