Whilst I was updating Office X, I had a conflict and had to restart using OS9 startup disc.....had to bin Office X whilst in 9. I restarted OSX and found that it now takes 15 minutes to start up and is also slow running. Have run First Aid from the OSX disc......clear!!!.....tried Norton and it shows that there is a problem in Volume Header Block......"free block count is incorrect"....it suggests I run Norton from the disc to fix.....but I dont have the disc...is there anyway round this.....or is this not the problem that is slowing the Mac down.....will I have to do a full restore?....which I would rather not do! >>>>>>>>further note.....OS9 takes longer to load as well!!
