Cleaning Up Mac OS X

I recently read about MacKeeper, a utility to optimize, clean up, secure, etc..., your Mac. I think this is a cool idea but I don't want to pay for this :)

So are there any similar programs/applications out there, preferably free?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

The linked question is broader in scope, but there are tools recommended. Are there any specific issues? I don't use any real maintenance tools (see my answer in the linked topic) and have absolutely no problems with the same OS X user profile I created two machines and two major OS X versions ago, back in 2005. – Daniel Beck Apr 4 '11 at 9:49
No issues in particular... I just saw an ad for MacKeeper and I was curious to see the results. It said I had "critical" issues but I don't want to have to pay for it b/c my Mac runs well. Thanks for the link. – Hristo Apr 4 '11 at 12:51

OnyX is worth looking into.
