    The one that most folks seem to like best (including myself) is OnyX.

    I prefer AppleJack but don't recommend it for newer users.

    Which have you tried? I like the two mentioned above, but fell in love with the simplicity of AppCleaner.

    AppCleaner is an uninstaller while OnyX is a maintenance tool - two very different apps there. Take a look at their page for more info.

    21" iMac 2.9Ghz 16GB RAM - 10.11.3, iPhone6s & iPad Air 2 - iOS 9.2.1, ATV 4Th Gen tvOS, ATV3
    Download Download MainMenu 1.7.4 Free. This is free but dont upgrade as it will ask you you pay. There is no difference between the paid and free btw.
    This works like Oynx but i found it to be easier to use and understand and for me the better job, so i went and bought it.
    If you go this way when in Prefences and you Configure Batch Tasks check everything except Spotlight Re-indexing and Remove .DS_Store Files and you will be right to go.
    With Oynx make sure if you dl that, that you get the .v for your OS as if you dont, you could end up doing more damage to the OS . . . Just a heads up is all.

    Cheers

    Imac 27" Retina 5K, 512GB flash memory, 3.3GHz, 16GB memory, macOS Sierra beta.
    Onyx or MainMenu as Tattooed says and junk CleanMyMac. It has terrible feedback and reports of bloatware and slowing down Macs..

    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    CleanMyMac is complete junk and is not at all recommended by almost everyone here.

    Cocktail however is a good program, and it's what I've been using almost ever since I started with Macs.
