Hey guys, I've been amazingly pleased with my early '08 Macbook Pro w/ Snow Leopard up until this past month. All of the sudden its gone to complete crap. Gmail is totally broken, my network always disconnects, its really really slow. spinning beach balls all over. Its a disaster. I haven't done anything different or installed anything new... Is there a virus out? How can i test my hardware? I have Win7 installed in Boot Camp, i think i'll boot over there and see how it runs. I run Permission repairs and it doesn't help. I've never done a clean reinstall. It is time for a format and reinstall? Any ideas? How can i narrow this down?
