Hi, i have a 12" ibook and love it, however after being a PC user that use to run many maintainence programes i have a few questions about Yasu and Onyx.
First, which is better, i have both?
With OnyX is it safe to run everything, i mean tick all the boxes?
Thanks in advance for your help!

i havent seen oynx, but in yasu, its safe to run everything although you don't need to run 'repair permissions' and 'update pre-bind' as often as the cron jobs.

They are all the same. All they do is running external scripts. The deciding factor would be look and feel, rather than the functionality.

Contrary to popular belief, it's safe to run all three maintenance at once, with all the applications still running, and you don't have to restart your machine afterwards.

if you have the latest OnyX all you need to do is go to the automated tab and tick all boxes and it runs everything fine i do that sometimes
