    At first I tried keeping on or two apps open at a time helped at first seems to still get worse. Then I uninstalled apps I never use and my torrent apps+related software. Could it be boxee or Safariblock these are my only major 3rd party apps left. I tried to verify the disk and there was an error could this be related? Is it possible I have a trojan though I never downloaded cracked ilife etc how would I check for that?

    back up all your important files, Erase and Install the OS, or buy snow leopard and Erase and Install.

    Oh haha I didn't notice that.

    iMac G3 is a great computer, but its the end of life for PPC. Time to upgrade, even if its an old intel.

    Then try an Erase and Install. Sounds like some serious problem, and the easiest way to diagnose it is to back and and erase.

    If you still have problems, your mac is a dud. Take it back.

    before u erase and reinstall..
    try this:
    in the terminal : sudo periodic daily weekly monthly

    let it do its thing...

    and you could also try running all the maintenance scripts in 'Onyx'...I had similar issues and running the maintenance scripts solved my problem..
