What we really need is an application which detect preference files which are not associated with any application, i.e files of applications where we have deleted the applications but forgot to delete their preference files.

Checked and produced a report in seconds. Seems to work as described.

Well, this program get right down n' dirty. Other pref checking apps I've used are much more complicated, so I like this.

One of my prefs reported an error, but I'm not sure what it means exactly. I'm sure future development on this will include additional features.

Nice start!

I'm running 10.3.5. Does exactly what it says - very quickly too. I like that it gives your a list of every pref. checked in TextEdit. Would be nice if it were to point out which pref(s) was corrupted instead of having to look through the list in TextEdit. But, otherwise, not too shabby.
