    Personally, do not recommend any of the so-called cleaning apps that perform functions similar to those you may be use to in that other OS realm.

    Grab Onyx for Tiger.

    Then head into your Downloads, Documents, Pictures, etc. folders and delete the junk you don't want any longer. Keep deleting until you're up to 15% free space minimum.

    And don't start deleting until you have a current back up.
    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.

    Same thing Onyx for Tiger.
    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!

    Sorry what exactly does OnyX do?
    I have a PowerBook G4 running 10.4.11 and want to do a restore to erase everything to make it like new but don't have the OS X disc. Will OnyX do a complete clean of the hdd?(That is without taking off the OS)

    No. Onyx is used for maintenance tasks.

    If you want to make it like new without an OS X disc, simply create a new account. Once you've logged into the new account, delete any other accounts on the machine. Viola, as good as new.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
