NOW we're cookin' with gas!

A couple of weeks ago when MacPaw released ver. 2 of CleanMyMac I wrote a scathing review of the product. I was not alone in my complaints about it freezing my system, throwing Error messages and generally wreaking havoc.

Looks like those MacPaw people REALLY DO LISTEN to us reviewers! This new update, ver. 2.02 is fabulous!

All the bugs seem to be cleaned up, it runs on my Mac beautifully now.

NOW I can recommend this app to anybody who wants a solid, stable, thorough cleaner/uninstaller utility. Worth the price!

FURTHER TO 1) My earlier "accidental" "5-star* review of CleanMyMac 2 and comment from user "Cgc", AND 2) more trouble reported with this update, incident posted by user "Borwehr" :

Hello User cgc!

Thank-you for pointing-out my incongruous *5-star* rating given - by accident - to this update of CleanMyMac. I just wasn't paying attention to the "stars", I guess. Sloppy of me. ( I don't like the way MacUpdate has the stars set to change effortlessly, with an errant swipe of mouse or pad!)

Anyway, I want to SHOUT OUT to users again: "WATCH OUT when using this version of CleanMyMac! It has a SERIOUS BUG, with potential to WRECK your hard drive! MY "LOCK-UP" issue was associated with cleaning out duplicates in iPhoto library Now I see here that another user, "Bordwehr" experienced an even worse case of HD LOCKUP and necessity to reformat drive for recovery, after running the Clean Unwanted Languages utility.

MACPAW; You need to investigate this bug that is wrecking users' hard drives.
I, for one, have uninstalled CleanMyMac 2 and will not re-install until I see a convincing bug-fix has been published and proven stable.

BE VERY CAREFULL! This latest ver. has frozen solid my Mac 10.7.5 system several times . Locked so tight I cud only escape by pulling the power plug! This necessitated full Sys Restore from Time Machine
The bottleneck seems to be iPhoto library, cleaning out duplicates.
Will not run this ver. again until I hear of some bug gifix for it.
