I would not touch it with a 10' pole.
There are better and free apps for maintaining your system.
Onyx comes to mind as one of the most trusted.
Make sure to grab the correct Onyx version for whatever version of OS X you are running.

Thanks
I'm sure my Mini is full of junk -- it was much faster before --i just don't know how to go about cleaning it up --is there any on line service that can clean it up ?

Have you tried Onyx, as jb suggested

One thing I have noticed owning both an iMac and a Mini. The Mini is slow Sad My Mini is a 2.53Ghz with 4GB ram. My iMac a 2.0Ghz with 4 GB ram. The iMac is unbelievably quicker than the mini. Its not just a little quicker the difference is huge. CPU wise the mini should be quicker, ram is the same so the only issue can be the slow 2.5" HDD in the mini.

Yeah, stay away from MacKeeper. Just do a little due diligence about them on Google. You'll see what we mean.

Onyx is an excellent app for maintenance. Also take a look at CCleaner for Mac. I use it more than Onyx these days. Just be careful with it while you are learning the ropes.
