    If you've installed it, go to System Preferences > Glimmer Blocker (near the bottom of the System Preferences window)

    Click on it to make sure it's enabled or to change settings if you need to.

    If you click on "Glimmer Blocker" in System Preferences, you'll see a checkbox next to the words "Activate GlimmerBlocker". If that's checked, it's activated. If it's not checked, check it. If you're not familiar with the app, I don't recommend changing any settings. You can get more information from the GlimmerBlocker website.

    I have a separate question to ask you if thats okay?

    You know on activity monitor am i suppose to keep clicked "my processes" (which it is on at the moment) or do i switch to ''all processes'' and what are the benefits of either?

    All Processes is more useful, as it shows everything running, rather than a subset of that.
