MainMenu 2.0 update
Dare to be Creative has launched an update to its system maintenance application for the Mac, MainMenu 2.0. The software provides tools for cleaning caches and log files, removing corrupted preference files, and can help improve the computers performance. The latest version comes complete with new system and network tasks, added “growl” notifications which inform users that a task has been completed, and the addition of an animated system menu-icon that appears when tasks are running.
The added system task now enables the forced restart of unresponsive programs, while the new network task is designed to restart the Airport card, during times where users are working on unreliable wireless networks. Other features allow users to run daily, weekly or monthly maintenance scripts, and provide tools for rebuilding the Spotlight database or repairing disk privileges.
MainMenu is compatible with Mac OS X 10.4 or higher, and can be purchased directly from the company’s website for $20. The software runs for a 15-day trial-version with all features included before the need to purchase.
