DoktorKleanor for Mac OS X 10.4 "Tiger" is radically different from other existing system maintenance utilities.

The AppleScript Studio + Cocoa interface of DoktorKleanor 10.2 has been replaced by an interactive dialogue between the Doktor Kleanor and the user.

What is original here is that the Doktor offers a list of problems it can fix (e.g "Safari is slow", "Mac Help quits unexpectedly"), rather than a list of repair functions (e.g. "Clear the caches", "Delete preference file x"), thus guiding users to a quick solution to their Mac's problems.

In addition, the code is
What's New

Requirements
PPC, Mac OS X 10.4 or later
If you are running Mac OS X 10.3 Panther, use DoktorKleanor 10.3
If you are running Mac OS X 10.2 Jaguar, use DoktorKleanor 10.2

Neat! An indispensable tool for my Power Mac. When it gets sick, I call the doc. And this one is free.

Nifty. What a novel approach to maintenance and repair. Thus far the 10.4 version seems to work flawlessly, though only time will tell. This and Tiger Cache Cleaner "may" be all I need... oh and of course DiskWarrior.

To the author: Went to your site to find no "contact us" button to click, so I'll ask here. Your product description mentions Safari slowdown. A problem which vexes many here in the shire. I use Cocktail and Onyx but still find no relief. Is Doktor Kleanor somehow different that it addresses the problem specifically? I tend to doubt it but thought I'd ask anyway.

In addition, the code is "100% Unix" (it's a shell script), which grants a high execution speed.

This new application automatically executes the required commands to fix the various common Mac OS X problems reported by the readers of MacFixIt, MacOS X Hints, xlr8yourmac and other Mac sites.
