Fix for Flash and Adobe app stability issues.

Developer website: If Then Software

DeepSix is a simple utility that removes some of the font-related files that can cause some design-based applications to unexpectedly quit, especially Flash and Adobe products. First, the software removes the infamous "AdobeFnt" files that seem to replicate across the system. Secondly, it removes the font cache files from the various libraries across the system. All of these files that are deleted are automatically rebuilt new when they are needed. Normally these can all be removed by hand, but that can be a tremendous time-waster to have to do various times a day in a busy environment. DeepSix will remove these files for you automatically each and every time. A simple fix that even Adobe suggests in their troubleshooting forums!

What's New

Version 1.2: This will remove AdobeFNT.lst files, but NOT the dreaded AdobeFNT.DB files. As a side note, none of the people who have downloaded have complained to us that any version of Illustrator on their system didn't work after using DeepSix. The software is now patched to not remove this file just in case. We have also added a log feature to the software to let you know what is being removed and when it was removed. Sorry for the mistake in the previous version and we certainly hope it didn't bring any harm to anyone's system.

Requirements
