    Hello I have a Black Macbook. 2.2ghz, 1GB Ram, running Snow Leopard.

    Recently I've been finding my laptop rather sluggish and slow when performing tasks and opening applications. Firefox will often be quite slow at performing mundane tasks as well as flicking between applications that are open which is also slow.

    I use a couple of apps to help clear out unnecessary files etc to help with performance and stuff but clearly this doesn't appear to be working.

    Any help?

    happened to me once and i was recommended to run Onyx, im not the most advanced mac user but this resets the permissions and clears up alot of other stuff that you have the ability to set yourself. It made a difference to me.. is not like those typical windows registry cleaner things. Do a search around google, its free.
