    You certainly need to be careful what you download and install. Pirated software is a frequent source of trojans. Be very careful before entering your admin password.

    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
