    Hey guys!

    Can you guys give me a step by step guide to a complete cleanup for my MB.

    (In my winblows days I'd just do a full virus search/ad-aware/spybot/defrag and I was pretty good to go)

    Thanks!

    Are you having a problem? If not, none of what you mentioned is really necessary.

    Yeah I feel as though my MB is running slower than it should - it used to run a lot quicker then it is atm

    These are a view programs but there are also many free ones as well.

    You could also try resetting you ram. To do this follow these steps:

    1.Shut down the computer.

    2.Locate the following keys on the keyboard: Command, Option, P, and R. You will need to hold these keys down simultaneously in step 4.

    3.Turn on the computer.

    4.Press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys. You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears.

    5.Hold the keys down until the computer restarts and you hear the startup sound for the second time.

    6.Release the keys.
