That IS it. As for what to recommend… stick to Onyx for the occasional maintenance that "may" be necessary. TinkerTool System (not plain TInkerTool) is also very good and is the ONLY tool of this type I recommend spending money on.

As for malware, check the various threads. Most of us here don't use any anti-malware software since there is a near-lack of it, but we also tend to be more aware of what we are doing. The reason MacDefender exploits have changed that thinking a little as it applies to novices.

As for cleaning… there really isn't a need for it. Good luck getting MacKeeper off your system… it apparently is a very difficult task. There are threads aplenty here and elsewhere on the internet detailing that.


Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).
