Hi, A few months ago my HD crashed (Powerbook G4 OSX 10.4.8), it all started with the computer running slow on the internet, and then spread and finally I couldn't do anything and had to restore the HD. I have absolutely no idea what happened, my room mates little brother got on the computer and downloaded a bunch of stuff...I guess that's where it started. Anyways, my computer is starting to run slow on the net again, which is just bringing back bad and scary memories, especially since I just finally got everything straightened back out. When I was working with Apple before the HD completely crashed and I realized there was a problem they had be reset my permissions. So, I don't remember how to do that. If some one could run me through that it would be nice, but also I was wondering exactly what that does/means/when I know I need to do it. Also, if you have anyother ideas of why it may be acting weird as such...that would be nice. Thanks!
