    Missing Log-In Items
    I turned my Mac Mini on this morning (Snow Leopard fully up-to-date) to find the Menu Bar icons depleted and Log-In applications under my name substantially reduced. I can, of course, replace them, but anyone know why that should have happened, what might have caused it?

    Have you run any maintenance or other types of "clean-up" utilities?

    There's a few out there like MacKeeper (and others of its ilk) that do more harm than good and are notoriously flakey.

    No. I only use Onyx and even that sparingly but I haven't used it in a while and it has never caused problems anyway.
