Hi all, Having a bit of trouble with a second hand mid 2010 Macbook Pro I've received. The trouble is that it boots very slowly (about 2min 45s). I do not have the disks to reinstall the OS, which would have been my first choice. When I went onto Firefox I did notice that it was defaulting to a rather strange search page, which reminded me of when a PC gets infected and it changes the home page. No idea if that could be a possibility on a Mac (very new territory to me). The other thing is that the optical drive isn't working properly and I will need to replace that, but I'm not sure if that could affect the boot. Thanks in advance. ---------- Another piece of information: as soon as I tried to run an application called 'Get Tube' (was curious what it might be), a screen came up saying something about donations if you like the software, and then the whole system immediately restarted. ---------- Second time trying to run Get Tube and it worked.
