      "Doesn't find bad preferences, only corrupted"

      May 02, 2010   |   By MWPollard

      Version: Preferential Treatment 1.1.8

      Pros

      Catches corrupted preference files.
      The program doesn't crash itself or your computer.

      Cons

      Confusing, few directions.

      The program doesn't find bad preferences, just corrupted files. Preferences can be problematic without actually being corrupted. Unless the file is actually invalid XML, this program will not catch it.

      Summary

      First, the program is confusing. There are no real directions. You drop the program icon on the icon for a Launch as Administrator script, since the program cannot do this itself. The script runs in a console session, which will be confusing for most Mac users, and requires your administrative password in that session.

      More to the issues of this program, The program doesn't find bad preferences, just corrupted files. Preferences can be problematic without actually being corrupted. Unless the file is actually invalid XML, this program will not catch it.

      "Not sure it really finds "bad" preference files."

      January 16, 2010   |   By w t s

      Version: Preferential Treatment 1.1.8

      Pros

      I reserve my opinion on the value/pros of this programme.

      Cons

      In a lightning speed review it came up with a problem but did not show that problem in the listing.

      Summary

      I am somewhat skeptical that this application works with late 2009 edition of Mac Intel's. I ran PT to check and it found no problems although there were. When I trashed what i was sure was a bad preference all was OK with the application.
