    OK, so this morning I noticed my mac was running slow, so I decided to delete a bunch of stuff. I know that this might be the problem. After I emptied the recycle bin, I said I couldn't delete the 'components' file (in library). MY mac was running faster until I noticed that my sound wasn't working. I saw in the components folder in the recycle bin that there were "AudioCodecs.component" and "CoreAudio.component"
    I dropped them in the components folder in the library folder(which was blank) and I had to type the admin pass cause it said I couldn't change it.
    It still won't work and I'm desperate! Please help

    Oh and itunes had an error and I couldn't open it(-200)
    and Garage band sound works
