v. failed again on two computers. Worse, after using the uninstall tool and reinstalling v., both computers required Safari to be "reset" before normal flash player functionality returned. This is simply too much hassle for me. I uninstalled Flash and changed my Safari "User Agent" in the hidden Developer menu to Safari iOS 6.1 - iPad and now most all websites serve me video other than Flash. There is "life after Flash" and video exists on iOS without Flash, so as long as Mac Safari can spoof iOS, things are OK without Flash.

"Plug-in Failure" upon installation of 13.0.0182. Took over an hour to figure out how to manually reinstall the working older version. Total waste of an hour. DO NOT UPGRADE.

I'm using 10.9.1 with a Radeon HD5770 and two monitor both on DVI ports. The version prior to v1.8 made both monitors black like oil and didn't work in Mavericks at all. The v.1.8 Mavericks fix only fixed the primary monitor to normal function, the 2nd monitor is still black like oil.

Original Skype was encrypted peer-to-peer, but Microsoft bought Skype and started routing all traffic through their own servers and the NSA was given access to everything. It appears that Steve Jobs held off the NSA as long as he was alive, but after his death, Apple capitulated in Oct. 2012, so FaceTime is also compromised. Oh well, there's no such thing as privacy any more, someone, somewhere can listen. Our voices and images may live long after we die, we're all movie stars in our own little vignettes. The king is dead, long live the king.

Amazing I got negatives for posting truth. NSA cracked the encryption keys, so the "Apple encrypts" argument is moot.

No FUD here, only TRUTH.
Negative judgement for truthful comments is bad karma.
Here's my good karma truth citation:

URLs won't post unless obfuscated, so here's the URL obfuscated, the TRUTHFUL citation that Apple encryption keys are compromised:

Having problems. Mac Pro 2,1 w/10.7.5. Trying to clean ghost voice recordings from SanDisk Sansa Clip Zip. When a voice recording is made, I transfer the file manually to iTunes and then delete the original from the Clip Zip by drag & drop to Trash and then Empty Trash. This always leaves a hidden ghost file in the "Recordings" folder of the Clip Zip which aren't shown in OS X even if invisible files are shown. If I use the "Delete a Recording" of the Clip Zip software it says "Recording Deleted" but nothing changes, and I have every single voice recording as an invisible ghost file that I can't delete at all. Your program does nothing except eject the Clip Zip immediately, and I've still got all the ghost files. They only way I know to delete them is to reformat the entire device, which losses me all my settings preferences.
I should mention that I've tried Hidden Cleaner 2.1 in both normal mode (64-bit) and using Get Info and checking the box "Open in 32-bit mode". Nothing changes in either mode.
The file names are of format: VRmmddyy### and are originally .wav files, but these ghost files have no content, and can't be played, or even transferred because they're invisible to the Mac, and the Sansa software sees them, but can't delete them.

Installed 0.96j on 7500/G4/400 w/10.2.6 and it wouldn't allow boot after installation. Utilities found errors galore, and I'm unable to resurrect the System after hours of work. I'd totally avoid this unless you absolutely need the floppy and have a drive & system to kill.
