TIP: MacBooster 2 - A powerful, recommended cleaner for your Mac.
“Preferential Treatment” is basically a GUI wrapped around the “plutil” command line tool provided by Apple Computer, Inc. since Mac OS X 10.2 (see “man plutil” in the Terminal). “plutil” just checks to see if .plist files are valid XML. This application is no panacea but it does help to fix blatantly corrupt preference files.
Authentication: There are some files that require administrative permission for this application to check them properly. If the account from which you run this application is not in the admin group, you will not be able to check these files. For this reason, for maximum benefit, it is highly recommended that you run this application from an administrative account.
OS X 10.2 - 10.5
BSD Subsystem installed.
