Keeps losing images. This software does not not work. It's useless. A complete waste of time

"... regardless of where in the world you are." NO, it doesn't. This app has absolutely no idea what "British TV" is ...
Deleted after 6 attempts to download a programme and prefs altered according to instructions. This app doesn't actually do anything ...

Used this to search for leftover files just in case the uninstaller app I regularly use missed anything. It didn't find anything. iFilesX found 6 items.

IObit have been making great Windoze apps for years and I've been a regular user of their maintenance and antivirus products for my office computers.
I haven't tried this app (their first venture into the world of Apple) as it could do with a lot more features "OSX style" and still remain free.
I am looking forward to how this app will develop in the future ... expect some interesting things!
This app has nothing to do with MacCleaner.

CORRECTION TO THE ABOVE POST: I meant "MacKeeper", not MacCleaner.

Same here too. Worked for about 5 downloads, then the so-called "bad proxy" messages flashed-up.
This is otherwise a great app. Simple and very easy to download programmes. I don't live in the UK and really miss my favourite shows. This app was perfect, but sadly, it fails to deliver now.

This is the most God-awful piece of software Apple has ever produced. It's NOT user-friendly. It doesn't update an iPod. It DOESN'T WORK !!!!
I have uninstalled and gone back to using a more sensible version from more than a year ago. Now that WORKS !

Re-installed this and was using it again for a while, but after the update. Everything stopped. Was left hanging while nothing happened.
Also, a million pop-up ads are sneaking through on almost every webpage I go to in spite of add-ons and prefs adjustment.
Switched back to SeaMonkey --very speedy.

Everything's stopped ... frozen ... nothing ...

This is just an image viewer. It does nothing else.

ML has made my computer very choppy. Everything's not as smooth-running as it was under Snow Leopard. The spinning wheel appears much more often than it did before, even though I've run several apps to clean, optimise, and delete junk from the system.

I rarely heard the fan before on my MacBook Pro, but that's putting in a lot of overtime since I installed ML.

I'm I'm hoping an update will 'calm' my computer and make it run the way it used to.

I keep downloading "damaged archives." I've tried several different computers in different locations...
Always great to see an update to this brilliant app.

Is there any way to uninstall this and return my beloved MacBook Pro back to its original, fast, smooth, un-choppy, stable self?
Honestly, ML has been a disaster. Slow start-up time, unresponsive apps, auto-terminating apps, intermittent internet cuts. I've had enough. ML was a very bad idea.
