This article walks you through a quick uninstall procedure of Toast 18. Performing this procedure may resolve a number of issues, including Toast crashing on launch or when using certain features, such as burning discs or importing files. If you have already tried this procedure and the issue remains, you may want to perform a more thorough clean up of Toast 18. Our KB article for a complete uninstall of Toast 18 can be viewed here

To start, quit Toast, if you haven’t yet, and trash the entire “Toast 18 Titanium” folder. You can navigate to the Toast 18 Titanium folder by clicking on the “Go” menu button on the taskbar and selecting “Applications” from the menu. Select the Toast 18 Titanium folder, right-click on it (or tap on it using two fingers if you are on the touchpad), then select “Trash” from the menu.
If you have any older versions of Toast still on your system, repeat the same procedure above for each version (if you have several versions installed).
NOTE: You need to remove all previous versions of Toast and reinstall only your most current version to avoid potential conflicts.

Next is to trash the Toast preferences files. These files contain user-specific preference settings and show up as reverse-domain filenames (“com.corel…” or “com.roxio…”) with a .plist file extension.
Follow the steps below.
1. On the menu bar, click on "Go";
2. Select "Go To Folder..." on the menu;
3. Type in "~/Library/Preferences", without the quotes; Note: The tilde character (“~”) indicates that the folder or folder path is located in the user’s Home directory. This library path is hidden, so you will not be able to get to it by manual navigation in Finder.
4. Locate the following files:
Note: if you see other plist files that have “com.roxio…” or “com.corel…” in the filename, you may trash them as well provided you do not have any other Corel software installed, such as AfterShot or Painter. If you do, it would be best to check if that particular plist file belongs to any of those Corel apps. Conversely, if you do not see some of the files listed above, it is okay - you might not have used its related application yet.
5. Go into the “/Corel/” folder and delete the “/Toast/” subfolder.
A shortcut to bringing up the hidden Library folder (so you don’t need to use the “Go To Folder” search tool) is to press and hold down the “Option” key on the Mac keyboard while clicking on the “Go” menu button. When you do this, a “Library” item appears on the menu. Notice that the “Library” item on the Go menu disappears when you release the Option key. Pressing the Option key again makes the Library item re-appear.

Other files/folders to trash under the hidden Library folder:
1. In “~/Library/Application support/”, delete the “/Roxio/” and “/Akrilic/” folders
2. In “~/Library/Caches/”, delete the following:
3. In “~/Library/Saved application state/”, delete the following files:
4. *If you see other files starting with “com.roxio…” or “com.corel…”, trash them as well after ensuring they do not belong to any other Corel app you may have installed.
Again, you may have a shorter list compared to the one above if you have not used the other apps under the Toast 18 “Extras” menu.
At this point, you are done. Reboot your Mac, then re-install your Toast 18 software. If you no longer have your original Toast 18 installer, a copy can be downloaded from here
