    Spring Cleaning has been notorious for years, through a couple of different software companies, for its ability to thoroughly screw up your Mac. Avoid it.

    Just about anything that app can do can be done through the many free/shareware apps out there like Cocktail, Onyx, MacJanitor etc etc for much less $$$ ......

    or thru the terminal, if you're into that :p

    but yea, that app has been known as a bugabooboo, at least in past years anyways :)

    FYI, Smith Micro used to make the fax software that was included with OS 8/9 back in the day, not sure if they still do or not, but it was never all that great either :eek:
