  1. Thanks @treed! I was interested in what you were saying about "cleaning apps". I recently chose to remove "CleanMyMac" from my computer after it decided to remove a whole bunch of music related files (VSTs) from my system. I was able to replace all of the missing files, but it has really put me off such programs. Having said that, I still have Onyx installed. As far as I can tell, it has a good reputation amongst Mac tech-heads, and it certainly saved my bacon I fixing a serious "spinning circle of doom" issue I had about 3 years ago. I'd be interested in your thoughts on Onyx. The other tool
  2. Before I deleted the files from the place where they were found, a made safe copies and moved them so I could have a closer look. Here is the /Library/LaunchAgents/com.maintain.ShutDown.plist... And here is the /Library/LaunchAgents/com.maintain.Restart.plist... @treed, it looks like you are spot on with the reference to Cocktail software, though it's not a name I recognise. I'll have to do some searching... Okay, I've found what I think is the relevant software https://www.maintain.se/cocktail/. I don't remember installing it, but a search on my Mac seems to suggest
  3. Interesting @JakeSteidl. Pretty much all of my downloads are to do with music production, VST plugins, samples and the like. Do you operate in similar areas? Did you download anything memorable last night?
  4. For the first time in the many months I've been using MalwareBytes, it's shown a couple of alerts. They are... Name: OSX.Generic.Suspicious Type: Malware Object Type: File Location: /Library/LaunchAgents/com.maintain.ShutDown.plist Name: OSX.Generic.Suspicious Type: Malware Object Type: File Location: /Library/LaunchAgents/com.maintain.Restart.plist Does anyone know where these files came from? Should I be worried? And should I keep them quarantined?
