    Clean my Mac problems?
    I just read that Clean my Mac is not recommended by some on this forum because it can cause some problems. What kind of problems can it cause?

    Slowdowns...and money out of your pocket to make your computer slower! Both things folks usually don't want.

    p.s. I wanted to add. One of the more common complaints about "Clean My Mac" is it cleans too much. And this seems to lead to computer slowdowns of some sort.

    Have a read of this for problems. Note the comments by the developers and lack of response to many problems.


    CleanMyMac cleaned too much - MacRumors Forums
    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!
