    What does this mean? It occurs every time I repair permissions. I'm running an i5 iMac 2013 on OS 10.9

    Warning: SUID file “System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/ARDAgent.app/Contents/MacOS/ARDAgent” has been modified and will not be repaired.

    Should I care?

    OK, now that I've got a captive audience, let me go one further. On a new iMac i5 running OS 10.9, is there any need to ever bother clearing caches in the library?

    Ten years ago, caches used to become cluttered.

    Not really, as resetting the caches will make your Mac slower, as those caches have to recreated.

    CleanMyMac is not maintenance software. Its main purpose is to free up disk space by removing unnecessary files and for this purpose it works quite well. Speaking of Macworld, the source of one your articles, they agree with me.

    It certainly doesn't deserve to bunched in with MacKeeper and Ccleaner. :eek:
