Best alternative to advanced mac cleaner or any other app

In reply to: How to get rid of advanced mac cleaner

I have come across many ads related to such cleaner which try to play with your mac's security and even make it slow.
I'm personally using CleanMyMac which is like a simple cleaner for junk files and really old unused files on my mac. You can things on your mac which are just taking some random space. So, I know it is safe to use.

On your take to uninstall advanced mac cleaner, follow these steps:

Thank you. Hope this helps you.

Move "Advanced Mac Cleaner" to the Trash

In reply to: How to get rid of advanced mac cleaner

Advanced Mac Cleaner is a scam. The support guys are too stupid to carry a Hackers title. Just a bunch of hires in Asia who catch other stupid people to pay them. But there is some structure above them who control this business. They got into my system, injected the virus, then they called me and asked for "only" $249 to clean it up. When they spoke with me, they knew my name, address, email, and told me that my machine is damaged and they want my credit card to 'help" me.
