Ok, first and foremost, I love my Mac. The problem is, I didn't shop for it myself, so my family bought it for my birhday and it has more bells and whistles than I would have chosen. So sometimes I get a little befuddled. I tried One on One with Apple store and that was not a good experience. The first thing the guy says is "wow, I didn't know it would do that", I knew I was in trouble. Just wanted to give you some background. I'm not dense but I need some guidance here. A lot of the terms are new to me so if you "dumb it down" I would be grateful. My Mac has been chugging along smoothly but in the last week it has started to be rather slow. I get the "color wheel" a lot and when typing email the words do not catch up to the typing for several seconds., What can I check/do to correct or see what problem I'm having. I've re-booted,I've emptied large unnecessary files. I've been using bit torrent a lot to download some video. Should I be wary of those sites. Thanks for listening.
