    Dear reader,
    I've been searching for too long now and I decided to ask the question myself :)
    My mac has been running a bit slow lately and some random crashes, so I searched for a solution and the only thing I found was to reinstall OS X.
    (I already have an ssd, so nothing to upgrade on that side)
    I have a working bootcamp partition on my ssd and thats where im a bit scared, how can I reinstall OS X and still keep my windows, and how should i reinstall OS X? Should i go from the option menu when I start my Mac or should i reinstall with the OS X installation program? And can you restore a time machine back up once OS X is freshly installed or will the backup start the problems again and is it smarter to reinstall all apps etc? And do you need to reconfigure bootcamp or will it automaticaly find the second partition?

    Thanks guys!

    Instead if the reinstall run the free Application EtreCheck and run it. It will point out incompatible apps, plugins that could slow down your OS X. Then in the report just highlight the unloaded plugins, that are incompatible, and the location will be pointed out to you to manually delete them.

    After throwing the incompatible in the Teash, reboot immeadiatly. The reboot then will not load them again and then it will be safe to Empty Trash at that point.

    Trust me this will hurt a lot less than an wipe/reinstall and will speed your Mac up.

    It would help if you told us
    - Year and model of Mac
    - Does it have platter-based HDD or SSD installed?
    - Version of the OS that you are using.

    (Public-beta version Yosemite)

    But i have been having the crashes before the beta, that's why I tried installing the beta to see if it works, but I just got the crash again, I was just browsing the web and listening to some music nothing special, and the music starts stuttering and the mac shuts down and restarts. This is the report made by Apple:

    Hope you guys can help out!
    Thanks in advance


    I have run the programm and it found some problems wich I could change and solve, but there is only one thing that could cause this problem, but I am not sure how to solve it.
    com.aladdin.hasplmd.plist had failed under the list: Launch Daemons.

    Hope you can help on what to do next, i have also added the report of apple after my computer crashes to my other reply on this post.

    Your crash could be caused by virtualbox, air display, sound flower, logmein or even little snitch software that you have installed. I would suggest uninstalling all them and see how the system acts. Then add them back in one at a time and see if any of them are causing the crashing.
