    What do you want to clean up?

    There is a search button at the top, 5th from the right, but a search will definitely inform you to steer clear of MacKeeper

    Stay away from MacKeeper.
    Onyx is generally recommended and it is free.

    Well despite the above comments, I have MacKeeper and it does me no harm at all.
    Choice is a marvellous thing.

    Another vote to stay away from MacKeeper and use the free Onyx.

    Download the version matching your version of OS X from here.

    And this ain't Windows. Most users will find they don't need to do any sort of maintenance but 3-4 times a year. I don't even open it until I notice some slow down on my system.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
