So lately my Macbook Pro has been freaking out on me and I figured someone with more knowledge then me could help out. First things first the issues: -MBP has trouble reading external HD with no previous problems and works fine on other comps. -MBP is very slow to copy items to flash drives, with no programs running. -itunes decided it wanted to upgrade the software on my ipod video back to the software from the first ever ipod..? then i needed to do a restore. -finder taskbar has been freezing after waking up from sleep. -Candybar won't change any icons anymore! -slower than normal boot. -One day last week finder changed the arrangement and location of all my icons and finder backgrounds on my HD screen, apps screen, and other various backgrounds in finder. Here is my configuration: Here is my setup:G4 cube runs on the halo3 screen Changes recently: - Just started using teleport with my g4 cube to share the same keyboard and mouse with my MBP -installed and am using geektool -started using time machine with an additional external HD Any help would be greatly appreciated!! I have never had any problems with this computer it has served me well with all my endeavors and it makes no sense why all of the sudden it would freak out. note: I did not pirate iwork 09' and I do not have the trojan virus as a result of that download. Also iAntivirus is running and it has not detected any anomalies. Thanks in advance!
