    One app that I would not recommend, based on the number of complaints that have been posted in this forum and elsewhere, is CleanMyMac. As an example: CleanMyMac cleaned too much

    Hopefully, you were wise enough to backup your system before running CleanMyMac. Just restore from your backup.

    Reinstall the OS. The damage is probably already done. You can still backup just restore only your home folder. Leave whatever you messed up with CMM out, then format the external and backup again.

    You had the laptop for a week, what were you trying to clean? lol

    While im sure that your new mbp is a beast, it is no mammal. It won't heal by itself after time.

    There's nothing you need to do to keep your Mac running efficiently. Just use it.

    Lol, I'm planning to get a MBP in the next 2 weeks. But right now I'm on a Windows 7 computer. Honestly I haven't cleaned it since I installed the OS (1 year or more) and I haven't noticed any slow downs.

    Windows 7 was a huge improvement from Vista and XP. If you were on either two of those operating systems, you would have noticed a difference after 1 year.
