    I would like to downgrade to 10.2.3. How do I do this?

    Reason: Ever since I downloaded 10.2.4, it has taken my computer 20 minutes to reach log in from power on. Computer usage is at 100% more than EVER even before I start running programs. Is anyone else having any similar problems?

    try downloading the install package from the apple website and re-installing...something may have gotten messed up while upgrading...

    i haven't heard of any other problems...

    also, did you try repairing permissions...and all the usual maintenance stuff? www.ambitiouslemon.com if you are not sure about how to do all the maintenance

    Also this maybe due to any 3rd party add-ons or 'haxies' that you have.

    If the problem persists, it might be a good idea to reinstall Mac OS X (it never hurts) and upgrade straight to 10.2.4 thru SUCP.

    I have two "haxies" and I will admit it was running fine before them. I just deleted one and removed the other one (although I do not know if it was deleted from my harddrive). After I deleted them, I reinstalled 10.2.4 and so far it is not showing any symptoms. You guys are the best.

    well if its acting up without the haxies, then you should probably reinstall Mac OS X all together. Even if you dont see any problems in 10.2.3, they do exsist, but arent showing up in the same way. Its a 45-minute process that could save your hard drive in some situations.

    Try fixing permissions from the Disk Utility app in your Utilities folder.

    i think that is what i am going to do. reinstalling os x will not delete other files such as movies, music, etc., correct?

    If you use a 10.2 install CD, you can "Archive and Install" which backs up your Home folder (desktop, prefs, movies, music, web sites... etc, anything stored in your home folder), and then installs 10.2. IF you have moved your music or movies to another HD, it wont back them up, but as long as you dont erase those other hard drives... your data will be safe.
