    onyX help
    i just downloaded onyX and used it and it seems to be working fine but i was curious about something that got put on the desktop - a file called

    onyX_147.dmg

    can i delete this? are there any other things that need to be deleted (stuff from downloading onyX that is not needed)? thanks

    yes, I use it regularly, though you should only use it if you REALLY know what your doing, an inexperienced/begnning mac user can really screw up the os using onyx.:mac:

    when you say opens and closes right away, do you mean it opens, and then quits, and you get the message: mac help has unexpectedly quit?if so, delete the preferences named : com.apple.help.plist, com.apple.helpui.plist, com.apple.helpviewer.plist. these are located in your home folder, library/preferences. after deleting those, restart and try it, if it still does it, repair permissions twice, restarting after each, and try that. keep us posted:mac:
    side note: always beware of third party software, especially those that effect parts of the system.

    started a new thread, i uninstalled OnyX to see if that would help but of course that did not. Then I realized I deleted some files I probably should not have the other night. I do not think this is related to OnyX so I'll start a new thread.

    I guess I should re-install OnyX huh... Geez, all i wanted to do was to make my iBook run smooth and now I'm probably cluttering it up by uninstall reinstall, etc... oh well...
