    (1) the whole system is very sluggish. All programs (including itunes, safari) stall all the time.
    (2) programs sudden freeze and ''blue death appears''
    (3) if it all restarted it is trying to ''catch up": suddenly all icons appear/get started.
    (4) Apple support is completely absent: I can't get on the phone to them, there is no e-mail support system and the genius in my local store is complete full.

    All in all I am better of with OSX10.5. How can I safely uninstall snowleopard?

    1- Are toy running in 4-bit kernel?
    2- Never heard of a "blue death" on a Mac, maybe Windows:p
    3- Not sure what you mean
    4- Has nothing to do with Snow Leopard. Actually, Apple Support is top-rated of 2009.

    did you upgrade or clean install? if upgrade is giving you problems, try clean install. i've been running SL for the past couple of days and it's been close to perfect (other than a few incompatibilities, but that's expected)

    Do you mean all your programs start opening when you log on? If so, go to System Preferences -> Accounts and with your username highlighted, click “Login Items”

    From there, remove any programs that you don’t want to start automatically when you login.

    FYI, this is the same in Leopard. If it’s different for you now, your settings must have just gotten changed somehow.
