    :confused:

    G5 PowerMac, Dual 2 GHz, 2GB RAM.

    Everything was great but today it was very very slow. I was playing World Of Warcraft and when i first start the game it gets very lagy (still did not connect), same thing happens when my friend gave me a cd and it took a good 8 secs after i moved the songs till it did.

    I restarted my mac and its a bit better but not as good as lets say 2 days ago, what should i do?

    Try booting from the "Hardware Test" CD that came with your machine. it could be memory problems.

    Also try using cocktail (see macupdate.com) and run all the cron scripots

    Launch Activity Monitor and check what processes are running in the background. That could help to pinpoint what is causing the slowdown.

    Download OnyX and run the maintenance, cleaning and automation scripts.
    It's very easy and should get you some results.
