    My emac has been acting strange lately, the latest of the occurances being that throughout the computer (dock, internet, and itunes all at once) random letters from words began dissapearing. I restarted the computer and it went away. What is happening, should I start seriously backing things up and reformatting (I've never done this, wouldn't even know how.)?

    Could you post a screenshot? I've never heard of anything like that. Were the letters just absent from the word with no other indication of anything being wrong, or was there a blank space where there should have been a letter?

    It seems like a random bug thats nothing to worry about, especially if its only happened once. But you should have an up-to-date backup anyway.

    Sorry, I didn't think to take a screenshot, I just panicked and immediately went to restart it. The letters were randomly gone from a word, so the word Don't was D n't and Address appeared as addre , spaces appeared where the letters should be.
