Any good clean up or optimization programs out there?
If it's noticeable slowing down, trying repairing permissoins. Disk Utility -> Repair Permissions.
Beyond that, there's OnyX, which is a good maintenance program.
What mac do you have?
Did you did a clean Leopard install?
What apps are slow now?
I did a clean install of leopard and im running a Macbook. what do i do with onyx?
How much Memory do you have on your MacBook?
I have 1GB
How do you know it's slowing down? What are the symptoms? Is it slow immediately after a restart, or does it slow down after some use?
BTW, another strike against clean installs as a cure for everything.
I fixed it now with Onyx. Thanks Guys!!
since updating to 10.5.2 my iMac has slowed noticeably weather opening applications or just clicking around, I reinstalled the update, used matainence in OnyX and repaired permissions. Is the something I'm missing in onyX that works. I don't want to purchase disk warrior. Any recommendations?
I'd ask you the same questions as the post above.
It's most noticeably slow after restart but is not as smooth or quick as 10.5.1 at anytime. Theres some delay after anything is clicked. The iMac has 1 GB Ram.
First, I'd make sure you don't have any disk issues. Do you know how to run Disk Utility from the restore discs, or fsck?
Since the computer came with Tiger install disks and Leopard is installed I use the first Install Disk right?
Yes, restart on this disc. You will be able to run Disk Utility from the menu. You could also try fsck, which I find easier, but some find scary:
Restart with the cmd-s keys held down, until you see a black screen with white characters. After the text stops scrolling, at the command prompt, type:
fsck -f [including the space, return]
If any repairs are reported, run fsck again until none are reported. Then, at the command prompt, type:
