I had 2 tabs open to write a review for and I wound up placing this in the wrong place under VLC. This is a full review since I have used, reviewed and demoed at my Utility SIG in Houston. I started when it was JCC and kept up with it over the years. So for those who dislike my lengthy reviews can read the other comments. Now the review:
I have looked at the SW recommended above and many of you are missing the point of the category MLCC belongs in.
The programs listed are tweekers or system enhancement programs more along the line of Secrets.
MLCC is in the category of fixing and maintaining your Mac and it does it very well for a shareware program. I was looking over my past reviews and found a review I did when it was JCC. It is curious that over the years it has not changed much in features but did improve in performance. Just look at the menus and then look at the other SW listed and you will see the drastic difference between it and those listed. If you are new to this type of program, take some time and read the manual. It will help stop you from making any errors while using it.
MLCC belongs in the fix-it category such as Disk Warrior, Drive Genius, Main Menu and DiskTools Pro. These are designed to FIX problems with you drive and not just turn on hidden options.
There has been many a time when my system was giving me serious trouble and I used LCC (or JCC, TCC, SNCC and so on) as my first line of defense because it does not require you to unmount the boot drive and it still works with leopard. Even though it hits major areas on your Mac the learning curve is fairly easy.
There is one caveat in the program though. If you are using Leopard or higher do not select the the Update Prebinding under the Maintain menu. That is for OS 10.4 and below. Use the Rebuild the LS Database instead. If you are a first time user, take some time to read the manual. This is a powerful program and from the programs listed above, people really do not realize the true design of this program.
The interface is easy to use. One thing that tends to bother me is how long it takes to load the main window but, understand the window is not where the tools are. They are found in the menu.
Now I may be on a G5 but, it is a dual 2.7 liquid cooled with 3.5 gigs of RAM and an ATI X 800 XP Pro for graphics.
I also wish that you could select the drive you want to use it on instead of booting to that one.
As you use it, it will ask you to do a restart after finishing some operations. Up to this point I usually dismiss it and go on to finish what I need to do first. After I get all the operations done, I will then reboot.
Just bare one thing in mind, make sure you have saved all work in progress because it might do what is called a dirty reboot and you will lose any unsaved work. This can happen when you do a cleaning of the system cache and depth you choose.
MLCC is well over 10 years old and it is one program you can use with confidence with all the operations it does. In all the years I have used it it has never crashed on me. For the price, MLCC matches what it does for the money.
I know that like myself most Mac users like to learn by just jumping into the program and not reading the manual. That has been true since the 128 Mac. With all the deep operations it does it is better to read so you know what each function does. Seasoned Mac users probably have been using this for a long time and already know how to use it. But, to the newbies out there all I can say is read.
One of the most important feature any application could garnish would be how it stands up over the years. MLCC as I said goes back to JCC, and if you ask me it passes with honors and is why I keep it Under the Hood of my Mac. End of Line...
