A Truly Useful Font Cache Cleaner

If fonts are not displaying properly in applications such as QuarkXPress, InDesign or Microsoft Word, or system performance seems sluggish, or applications become unstable, try using Northern Softworks’ Snow Leopard Cache Cleaner to repair the problems. (Contrary to its name, it works with Mac OS X 10.3, 10.4, 10.5 and 10.6.)

This extremely versatile $10 tool provides an easy-to-use graphic interface for clearing potentially corrupt Font cache files (a common cause of font display problems), as well as other cache files to improve system stability. Tasks can even be set to run at regular intervals.

In addition, it offers helpful features such as: turn off Spotlight or Dashboard; set up and use a Login Items folder; automatically repair permissions after installing new software; automatically scan for viruses in downloaded files; create an emergency startup system on a flash drive or iPod; and test for problems with hard drives, screen pixels, batteries, RAM and more.
