Diagnostic software for MacBook?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm a recent convert from Windows to a MacBook and love it. However, after all the crud that built up on my Windows system, I'm paranoid about the same happening to the MacBook.

Is there a program out there that runs a diagnostic and/or "clean up" on the MacBook, or does the MacBook not even need to worry about that? RoadRunner is my ISP - they offer lots of diagnostic software but it's all for Windows OS.

I'll appreciate any comments and information from all the Mac experts out there. TIA.

Onyx could be what you're looking for.
It's like a GUI for the Mac OS X Unix layer.

With Onyx you can run Maintenance scripts (Daily/Weekly/Monthly), delete several caches, optimize the Finder, Dock, Safari and more, remove files and folders that became annoying

There are a lot of other programmes out there that do the same, but Onyx proved to be a good application, although I might add, I don't really use it that much, because I don't really need it.

But see for yourself if you need it.

Good day.
