I installed it. It said it was installed ... and I could not find the application anyware to launch it.
Then I uninstalled and it did in 2 seconds.
Of course there was no documentation to try understanding how to locate and launch this thing.

Joke or fntom app.

This thing ha a terrible security flaw.

Run System Optimizer X and authenticate when it asks you to. Then run the repair permissions thing. Open up a terminal and run 'ps -a'. Notice your password appears in plain text. Anyone on the system can run the ps command and also see your password. This needs to be fixed.

Example:

inverted-urchin:~ user$ ps -a
PID TT STAT TIME COMMAND
1986 p7 Ss+ 0:00.03 -csh
2015 p8 Ss+ 0:00.01 sh -c echo 'MYPASSWORD' | sudo -S diskutil repairPermis
2017 p8 S+ 0:00.44 diskutil repairPermissions /
2020 std Ss 0:00.02 login -pf eringraham
2021 std S 0:00.02 -bash
2023 std R+ 0:00.00 ps -a
inverted-urchin:~ user$

Version 4.7 is the last version I've been able to use. I get an error 1000 when trying to launch the app. If I extract it with Pacifist I get the same thing. What's wrong here? OS 10.2.8

Crashed my Tiger installation. Thank God I didn't purchase this thing before trying it. It probably corrupted a cache. Didn't have time to fix it before work. DEFINATELY not end-user fixable.

Follow-on from above - whenever I have used the maintenance scripts on this app I have to repair persmissions with disk utility every single time. It has now induced a kernel panic on iBook G4 Tiger. Sorry, but this is more trouble than it's worth and a waste of money as far as I am concerned - trashed. Back to macjanitor.
