"You're asking for trouble"
The program is a good trouble-shooter, making you aware of all of the "stuff" on your computer that you don't use.
The program is not a problem-solver. Quite the contrary--it insists on doing repeat downloads of the same files prior to every use, resulting in numerous hang-ups (spinning balls), delays, and time-wasting. The program is a good promotion for CleanMyMac, due to the hang-ups, but it also guarantees that you'll be doing nothing but cleaning your Mac every day. Also, the program offers downloads of expensive software that I know is unlikely to respond to mass, automated requests such as this, since there's a charge for upgrades to Disc Warrior, Drive Genius, and similar pricey software programs.
I'd advise a son or daughter to leave it alone. If you're a Geek and don't mind daily companionship with all of the little inhabitants in the little corners of your machine, you may get satisfaction from knowing every day that each inhabitant has been brought up to speed. But the greater price is to your computer, which definitely gets slowed down by this daily ritual.The program's most useful feature for my needs, has been its ability to uninstall all of the components of of a program, allowing you to feel secure in the knowledge that no remnants of an unwanted program remain on your machine.
