    Hi,
    Can anyone help as my iMac system fan will not stop and is coming on as soon as I switch the mac on I have done a SMC reset and also a PRAM and NVRAM reset but this dose not do anything also the mac slows down considerable and when it eventually starts up all the apps when I click on them bounce and tacks forever to load up.

    You should try two things:

    1) Download and use the free application EtreCheck. The program will print put a report that will show the paths to files and show which paths to trojans, incompatible files & kexts to manually delete the files yourself, then reboot at the end of deleting. This should clear out old files and speed up your OS X.

    2) After step one take to local computer repair place to clean out the dust in it and check it out. Make sure the place has a reputation.
