    I run on my MDD G4 PPC OSX 10.5, Sophos and Clean my Mac
    To day i found the Clean my Mac in the Bin. :) (Some other Applications are gone already)
    I found out as i just had emptied the Bin and was wundering what is left in when i waked up.
    I had to move it out,back to the Application.
    Yesterday i watched Bud Spencer on youtube (Firefox).
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZnxwR99RLp0&feature=related
    At End of Part 1 started the Part new,and new again and again. Normaly it would finish after the Part till i do anything.
    The other time i watched Karl farkas,an Austrian Comedian on Youtube. Its in Austrian Dialect and not easy to understand if you dont know the Slang. Firefox crashed all few Minutes.
    Emails are missing from my Email account and other special Things happening.
    I have Firewall and Stealth Mode,and run Sophos.
    Now,i have the Idea that someone is inside. I got the G4 few month ago with OSX 10.5 pre-installed. I have no Disc to re-install it and can't find OSX 10.5 to buy.
    What can i do? Or what is happening?

    Assuming your not doing a pathetic troll attempt:
    1) What you watch on youtube has no impact on this.
    2) Sounds to me as if youve fundamentally broken OS X.... although its possible they have Remote Desktop installed or similar - just get the disks off eBay and reinstall - should solve everything (but grab your data first ofc)
    3) Applications dont just "disappear" so something somewhere is horribly wrong with your OS install.

    Now,well
    I got the Computer with Leopard on it and i didn't change anything.
    Application didn't disapear automatically. Its just that they move to Trash and i usually deleted trash without control whats in. so i did late Night and at Morning were trash in bin. so i opened it and it was "Clean my Mac" Bought the 6 month Copy for £11.- to test it.
    So i moved it back to Application,where i sah that it was missing. Funny,not?
    Yes,Leopard.
    i didn't put it on,and i got no Software with G4 MDD. looking already to get a OSX 10.5 to buy,but nothing yet,excempt offers to sell me a copy :) i will not,as Piracy were too expensive for me if get catched.

    I got said in another Forum that someone could do in my Computer via iChat or so. I checked and it is not Registered or what. Would be posible something were set by installing OSX,but im not long with Computer and Apple charges £28.- for answering a Question online.

    The previous owner might have ****ed up the system or left something strange behind, but the culprit could also be CleanMyMac, as it is known to **** up things with Mac OS X.
    CMM cleaned too much

    Epudl
    When i booted up was for a tenth of a second a pop-up window 3 inch to 5 Inch or so,and on Top was " E P U D L" where normally is "F I N D E R"
    I googled for Epudl and came straight to a topic anyone believes is from Epson.
    Now,well
    i also put Epson on my g4 but didn't register and had,as i refused to register some Funny things,but couldn't find the Epson register app anywhere to delete them. forgot that over the Time and may re-install the Epson Software.
    And about "Clean my mac' i think i know now whats on.
    I bought two 6 month Copies for £11.- each to try it.
    As i put the second MDD G4 out of Work moved i the 120Gb Hard drive to that Mdd to have now 240 Gb and have now both Clean my Mac on one Computer,which didn't do anything till i updated the Software on the second HD which resulted that the Clean my Mac on the Booted Hard drive moved the Copy on second HD to the Bin.
    Thats for the Clean my mac,to clean up,and it did.
    now have to send Epson a @,as they can write the Software that i haven't trouble with it.

    You don't really need an application like AppZapper or CleanMyMac.
