I brought my MacBook Pro six months ago but didn't have time to use it. Now I have been using it and getting to know it over the past 3 months. I am surprised by the performance of the MacBook Pro. I really like the notebook but its not as fast as I thought it would be. I don't have any games or music on it for I am getting some pop ups, and the little colorful circle goes around and around a lot and something for a long time. I tried the defrag instructions and it helped a little. Do you think I pick up a virus somewhere along the way of going from site to site. Can you think of anything else I should try , if not I am a bit disappointed because I was hoping it didn't act like Windows. I am taking a class from Udemy on using the MacBook Pro. But I thought I would come here and ask people that uses Apple products all the time. Thanks!
