    This week my iMac has had two bouts of weird screen behavior. The letters in the menu bar start to go missing. (Example: Fi ef x Fi Ed Vie His ory Bo k mar s) Then, letters all over the desktop start to go missing. (Folder titles start to look like this: Sch ol Pr jec ) When I reboot the problem clears up, but it has happened twice in one week, so I'm wondering if this is going to get worse. Do I need to delete a preference or do some memory cleaning??

    Sounds either RAM or Graphics Card related. Run the apple hardware test first, then, then try a PRAM reset ( hold Apple+Option+P+R on chime. repeat 3 times).
