    I'm a student in college and I use my computer pretty much all day. I'm wondering if I should use the program OnyX to clear my caches and clean pretty much everything. (Current config. set to clean all options) Should I do this? If so, how often?

    EDIT: Currently running and cleaning once per month.

    OS X clears the caches frequently so there is no need to do it manually. OnyX is a handy tool but not necessary. I run it like once a month

    OnyX is great when you are experiencing problems. I find it useless as a preventative maintenance tool, and thus do not run it regularly.
