It does not work with 10.5.5 to disable System services like the infamous ChineseTextConverter.

Thanks ! Still useful on 10.6. I wanted to rate 5 stars, but I missed something.

Great program when it was needed -- but, FWIW, the following text is viewable at manytricks.com's website for Service Scrubber: "Apple has improved services and their menu representation dramatically in Mac OS X 10.6, rendering Service Scrubber obsolete, in our humble opinion. We'll leave this online for those who need to stay with Mac OS X 10.5 or earlier."

Here's what the dev's site says now: "Apple has significantly revised Services in Mac OS X 10.6 and newer. As a result for these changes, Service Scrubber may cause unpredictable results if used in Mac OS X 10.6 or 10.7. We've left this online for those who need to stay with Mac OS X 10.5 or earlier."

I'M HAPPY to witness that Many Tricks is back online, with the great communicator Rob Griffiths (of MacOSXHints fame) joining the company. There have been RECENT UPDATES, they have an ACTIVE BLOG now, and I definitely know they ARE ACTIVELY WORKING on cool new stuff as well as on more updates to their existing software. See http://www.manytricks.com and http://www.manytricks.com/blog for more information. And no, I'm not married to Peter or Rob or Alex, and I'm not affiliated with Many Tricks, I'm just a happy user of some of their stuff, and I'm in contact w/ them over their blog.

They're back on-line again. Great! Looking forward to more good work. This is a very helpful utility that runs under 10.6.2 and is unique in it's functionality.

idem … I dont have access to the system services (Chinese Textconverter, Finder, …), so I can't disable them :-(( Suggestion : It can be useful to sort the services by type : system / external providers, disable / enable. Great work PS : is there a possible way to have the services menu into a contextual menu (under right clic) ??

Makes the service menu usable again. Only one of the service menu editors which actually works. Check out Butler and Witch also. Peter Mauer and Marcel Brink (Tinker Tool and Hardware Monitor) are two of very few programmers whom I trust with system level utilities. Rock solid. I've donated to almost every product they write and recommend you consider making a donation as well. Any of their code is better and more useful than 90% of the $30+ shareware apps out there.

This is just great. It doesn't do much, but for what it does, it performs great. It's fascinating how Apple wouldn't implement such a feature within Finder, right off the bat. I've never had any problems with Service Scrubber and it will continue to be part of my most essential apps collection. 5 stars, all cathegories.

Everything created by Peter Maurer is a must have... I wouldn't know how to use OS X without Butler and this is yet another super useful and perfectly designed app.

Will this help change the e-mail app called upon by the "Mail->Send..." menu items?

No. Sorry. Service Scrubber lets you change the structure of your services menu, but you can't change what a given service actually does. If you want your (non-Mail.app) e-mail client to provide a service for sending e-mails, you'll have to contact the developers of that e-mail client.
