    Just curious if there were any free programs available to "clean up" the performance of macbooks.

    I know there are things like ClamXav to remove any spyware etc..but any other tips would be appreciated :)

    My macbook is turning 5 soon and I want to keep it running as long as I can. Lately mine has just been running slow

    this + clean OS install. Especially if you have just been upgrading your OS for the past 5 years (rather than clean installs.) Don't just clone over all your old junk.
