    Hey guys,

    Been using macbook for half a year now and from time to time I experience different glitches. I think my system is ready for some kind of "health check".

    Can u plz suggest any utilities that can check/fix any possible issues with my OS? :)

    I have 10.6.8

    OnyX is a free app that can do some system maintenance for you,
    other than that, run repair permissions and verfify system disk in Disk Utility

    Sounds like a RAM problem. WebKit or WebKit2 based browsers need at least 4 GB installed RAM, especially if you use other RAM-intensive apps.

    You can verify the health status of your Mac hard drive using disk utility or if you wish to use third party tool you can use Volume repair.

    For rest, I would ask question that miles01110 already asked: What kind of "different glitches"?
