One program that is mentioned in the article is OnyX. OnyX is a multifunction utility (maintenance, optimization, and personalization). It allows you to run misc tasks of system maintenance, to configure certain hidden parameters of the Finder, Dock, Dashboard, Exposé, Safari, Login window and many Apple’s applications, to delete cache, to remove a certain number of files and folders that may become cumbersome, to see the detailed info of your configuration, to preview the different logs and CrashReporter reports, to check the Preferences files and more.

One thing you need to know about OnyX is that it needs to run from an administrator account. If you practice safe computing and do you day-today work in a user account, you need to logout of your user account and login under your administrator account. Once you are done running OnyX, you willl restart your computer and then you will be back into your user account.
