This project is under development and I would love to have you get involved. What I need from you is to find other caches and temp directories that store the same types of information. Email me the directories and the programs that they affect and I will include them in the program.

I am currently working on adding a preference file to the program in which you will be able to set which actions you want taken.

This is a tool for the Mac IT guy to use on a system that has multiple users. For example, if you manage school computers you can have the teacher run this app on every system between classes. This will help protect the students from others getting to their private information.

MacSanitize can also be used as a browser reset tool for Web designers. It quickly clears the cache and history from all three major Mac browsers.
