    With all the problems your having it might just be worth doing a clean install of OSX (after having backed up your data of course). It'll give you a clean sheet to start from and you'll see everything will run smoothly.

    ya i was thinking I might do that when I get some free time...So would the clean install clear up my HD? in terms of that 15GB sparseimage file?


    n now i need to find out how to do a clea install on the forums... :)

    A clean install will basically format your disk and install a fresh copy of OSX on it. Its very easy to do. Just pop in your OSX restore disk you got with your mac and follow the instructions. A quick search of the forums here will find you a more detailed step by step description of how to do it.
