    There can be various reasons why your Mac starts running slowly. Some of these can be app-related – especially if you are making multiple changes in programs that have autosave enabled. Other problems could be due to running processor-heavy apps that need more RAM than you’ve presently got. Before you dash off to Crucial to […]

    Generally, I like to keep browser extensions down to a minimum, but here’s an essential one if you are tired of all those ‘Clean your mac’ / ‘Speed up your mac’ ads on every website you visit. Download and install the Safari adblock extension from here: http://safariadblock.com/ What I like about this particular adblocker is […]

    If you’re new to Mac, you’re probably thinking that it’s a no-brainer that you need some kind of anti-virus app. Once you start looking around the web for reviews, it’s inevitable that you’re going to come across the Great Mac AntiVirus Debate: in the one corner, those who say Mac users who forego antivirus protection […]

    We’ve spent pretty much the whole of the summer working on this upgrade, so we’re both delighted (and not a little relieved!) to finally be able to announce the release of DetectX 2. If you were a user of earlier versions of DetectX the most obvious change you’ll notice is the new Selector bar, and […]

  • 11/08/15--09:26: how to uninstall MacBooster
  • We are decidedly not impressed with MacBooster. Ok, we’ll put aside the general complaint that apps like this do very little if anything to improve performance (in fact, in our tests, we find almost always quite the opposite). We have a bigger beef with MacBooster. Indeed, we rate it even more pesky than it’s obvious […]

  • 11/19/16--22:31: how to keep the iDoctor away
  • DetectX has been updated today to v2.37, and amongst other changes now detects and removes iDoctor.app. This piece of software appears to be another MacKeeper clone, with both sharing a common interface, code and file structures. In the screenshot above, you can see DetectX doing its work – note the parallel file detections as DetectX […]

    DetectX Swift now has the ability to do command line searches for issues on your mac like malware, keyloggers, browser hijacks and potentially dangerous software, and there’s a number of extra options that are not available when using the user interface. In this post, I’m going to give you a quick tour of the CLI […]

    Last week I added MacGo’s Mac Media Player.app to DetectX’s search definitions after finding that the installer was delivering MacKeeper on unsuspecting users. After a support call asking me whether the MacGo player itself was malicious, I decided to look into what was going on in a bit more detail. Downloading the Mac Media Player […]

  • 06/15/18--10:22: latest MacKeeper file paths
  • Want to remove MacKeeper? The easiest way is to use my free/shareware app DetectX Swift, but if you’re looking to do it yourself, here’s the complete list of all past and current known filepaths. Bear in mind that DetectX Swift can find other MacKeeper paths that are not on the list due to its internal […]
