Can anyone here shed light on what CCleaner does when you ask it to uninstall applications in OSx?
I asked it to uninstall some Adobe CS5 products from my Mackbook Pro running OSX 10.1.2.6 because I didn't need them any more. I remember at some point seeing a dialog of some kind listing about 3 "scripts" with checkboxes against them. Honestly I didn't pay a lot of attention to them and just thought it was some part of the CCleaner process. (I use CCleaner on my Windows machines for a long time and so I trusted it). Got prompted to enter system password about 3 or 4 times, but password prompt is not unusual on OSX to make admin changes so I proceeded.
After my next reboot of the machine, TO MY SURPRISE, all of my system settings were reset. i..e Wallpaper, mouse options, display resolution settings, all such things. Appeared in a way like OSx was just reinstalled. How in the world did this happen? What were those scripts? Now that I think back, they are different than what I was used to on Windows.
I managed to set most options back to my preferences but some license and important settings for my DJ software seems to have gotten wiped out too.
Please, any insight appreciated!!
