    I use The Unarchiver. I find it better than stuffit.

    I don't use Stuffit and I refuse to use anything that comes compressed with that stupid format. I just use the inbuilt un/compressor.

    I have no idea what Magicmenu is. :)

    Only if it's 1997. Seriously, just get rid of it. OSX's built-in archiver works great, and there are other free utilities that work just as well.

    I've never had a problem with Stuffit expander. It doesn't have an icon in my menu bar, and it opens, expands my file, then quits. Like someone above said, maybe just delete it as a login item.

    Stuffit blows. The .sit compression format is dead.

    Back in the day I used StuffIt for Windows and liked it a lot, it's a lot better than the bloat that is WinZip, but alas they've bloated up since then, and .zip has became such a standard that most OSes can handle it out of the box.

    Just use OS X's built-in unarchiver, and get UnRarX for rar files, and you're set.
