    Okay, so I got my MacBook last Christmas, and recently it's been starting to act really strange. My computer is sooo slow, and it never was before. I have a 250GB hard drive, with 2GB of ram and right now it says 222.55GB available. I don't have much saved on here, but just opening a couple of windows in Safari is a big problem. The system gets so slow, and choppy and unresponsive, especially when using YouTube. The ram usage goes really high, even though it never did before. I visit porn sites occasionally, and I don't have virus protection. Please help! I just want it to act normal again.

    Go to spotlight then disk utility. Then repair disk and repair permissions. This should help.

    Like the poster above said,and also download Onyx and run all the pains and restart when it tells you too and it should run quicker.Also,if you haven't updated it,do so,and if your a big internet user try Firefox,it runs much better than Safari and quicker. Hope this helps.My Late 09 MB is still running like new. :)
