    My iMac was acting a little sluggish recently and someone recommended that I use Mac Cleanse to clean it out. Has anyone used this app before? What exactly does it do or clean?

    I haven't used that specific app, but maintenance and 'cleaning' tools in OSX are largely unnecessary.

    Some things to do if your Mac is slow:

    • Check your hard drive's free available space.
    • Check Activity Monitor in the Utilities folder to see if anything is using up a lot of your resources.
    • Disconnect peripherals.
    • Check if there's a correlation between certain third party apps and the computer's slowness.
    • Remove system hacks and theme changers.
