    Hi Guys, had my MBA for a few days and it was fine up until tonight, I installed 2 things, Red Crucible 2 and Rowmote Helper. Ive since removed both of these (although had some trouble removing rowmote) and suddenly my ssd speeds have come way down, write is around 168mb and read 300 odd. Also when waking from sleep it takes a lot longer as well as a spinning circle when booting up which wasnt there the other day.

    I would try clean my Mac. Then if its still slow I would blame it on RAM going bad or try disk repair. When my SSD speeds went kaput it was the result of my RAM going bad.

    Search threads on how to remove programs. Your missing some system files associated with them.

    I don't think the game would cause problems. I would be looking at the remote app.

    I found this with uninstall instructions.

    Appears all the files from those 2 have gone, might just me being paranoid about slow down. The only noticeable difference was the "instant on".

    Thanks for the help guys.
