    Hi all,

    My rMBP which has hardly been used (late 2013 512gb) is acting really slow.

    Is it because I've hardly use it over the past few months? I turned it on briefly today as I had to go through security so they needed to see it switched on. When It booted and got to the login page in seconds, I quickly hit the shut down button but it just crashed. I then had to hold the power button.

    Other than that it's also been really slow and laggy. It all started with when I installed utorrent and some extra software installed as it messed up my safari.

    Do you guys recommend a complete wipe? Or could it be something else?

    Thanks

    You probably have some sort of malware on it.

    A complete wipe and clean reinstall would be the easiest solution.
