  1. Ya thanks & g'day to you down under too. I've moved on with life and taken it as a lesson learned. >> Have Mac = do not use CC except in an emergency and hope for the best.
  2. After almost a week and 50 views no one has anythng to say about this. My only conclusion is that CCleaner on MAC sucks and one should avoid using it on a MAC because it may do things that can't seem to be explained.
  3. 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!!
