Version 1.1.6 claims compatibility with Mavericks OS. I cannot install it successfully as I get the following, " Macs Fan Control is damaged and can't be opened. You should move it to the trash." I tried several installs.

I tried this install on a 2013 MacBook Pro with OS 10.9 Mavericks. The previous version worked on Mavericks.

Signed or not, after multiple reinstalls and using app cleaner to rid all file related to Macs Fan Control, I continued to get the 'Macs Fan Control is damaged..." Only after following the instruction recommended by "Corrosive Vinyl" did my last reinstall take hold:)

JavaScript Blocker 4.0.2 was working fine on my iMac, OS 10.6.8. Safari 5.1.10 until a few days ago when I hit the settings on JS Blocker and got the following item: "You have to allow scripts from the host com.toggleable.javascriptBlocker-6S8J5HV3H4 in order for the setting page to function."

Essentially it does nothing now. Help. It also does this with all the other extensions off.

Have been using this for years; however I find it so slow on my i5 4core iMac. It does not seem optimized for recent Macs processors. It's like using a PPC app and having to use Rosetta but slower-like forever spinning beach ball onscreen. It is useable on core 2 duo but needs a serious update for recent Macs.

1.1.3 still crashes on "System Report" on my late 2006 Core 2 duo iMac. Not willing to try again on my 27" i5 quad core iMac until the developer gets it together.

I have gone to the support team and sent in crash reports previously.
That does not preclude me from warning the general reader of MacUpdate that this program needs more work.

Well, although the Optimize function did it's thing (whatever that is) on my older late 2006 iMac. When I just tried the "System Report" all it does is crash, crash, crash.

I have a current (July 2010) i5. Used the updater to update to 4.3. Updated the app in the Utilties folder. Used a wired keyboard as the Alsoft support site says (for current i3,i5,i7, iMacs), restarted with the c key. Heard the disk spin, then nothing. Tried the "option" key, same result. it boots on my 2006 iMac 2 core duo.
Any ideas??

I updated my Pilot to 4.0 and now did this update. Now when I do a "Perform a rebuild the Locate Database", I get a separate window telling me "Rebuilding the Launch Database requires elevated permissions. Terminal will be launched after this message is dismissed and may prompt for administrative password. Input it and hit enter." BTW I am the administrator and my permissions show they are OK for this Pilot. I have never had this happen with Mac Pilot before. In addition, when the terminal window does launch it does not let me enter my admin password. Any answers? iMac 6,1, Intel Core 2 duo OS 10.6.3 (intel).

So my "ZippyRippy"(version 1.0.6) asks me to download, install, and relaunch version 1.0.7. I do this but all I get is same version I already have. The website says nothing about this supposed version 1.0.7???

I paid for this thing; however, I'm unable to get any download list in the "Pop" genre. I get the other genres I'm interested in. Every time I try the "Pop genre I get, "Radio Gaga could not receive information from the radio list server." I've tried morning, noon and night-is there a problem???
