How to get rid of NTFS for Mac driver update notifications?

I have trashed all NTFS files I can find on my MacBook Pro (2018) and still get a message regularly that "A new version is available." Is there a way to prevent these notices from appearing?

Most likely, you've installed NTFS for Mac software such as Paragon NTFS for Mac, Tuxera, etc. Some of these NTFS drivers can be extremely hard to completely uninstall, even after you delete every possible trace of them. And that's why you keep receiving the new version notification. Here we'll show you how to uninstall Paragon NTFS for Mac for an example.

How to completely uninstall Paragon NTFS for Mac

Option 1. Manually delete Paragon NTFS for Mac and supporting files.

Oftentimes, users uninstall apps on Mac by dragging them to the Trash. Or, you can right-click on the application and choose Move to Trash. However, doing so only removes the executable package of the app without deleting the supporting files. To remove the supporting files of Paragon NTFS for Mac, you have to check the /Library folder.  

Unfortunately, since you've already wiped out every file or folder that's related to this NTFS driver, you may check the next method for a more complete uninstall.

Option 2. Uninstall app with the built-in uninstaller.

Certain apps come with both an installer driver and an uninstall driver in the DMG file (installation Disk Image). You can uninstall this application from your Mac by using Paragon NTFS uninstaller.

Step 1. Open Paragon NTFS for Mac and choose Preferences from the menu bar on the top.

Step 2. Click the Uninstall button under the General tab of the Preferences box.

Alternatively, you can uninstall Paragon NTFS for Mac 15 by launching the installer (ntfsmac15 trial.dmg) and selecting the uninstall option.

Option 3. Use professional Mac uninstaller.

If you still receive the software update notification after trying out the above two ways, using a third-party uninstaller is worth considering. iBoysoft MagicMenu is able to remove all components and supporting files of the program you wish to remove and free up space on Mac. With iBoysoft MagicMenu, you can entirely uninstall any unwanted third-party apps in just three clicks. Download this handy tool to completely uninstall Paragon NTFS for Mac.
