    I have a problem with the system on my macbook pro. Lately the system responds very slowly and I need to force quit most of my apps, especially any browser I use. I had this problem before, and I solved it with a clean install of OSX, but now it's back and I don't want a clean install every time this happens. Can I suspect a virus?

    Repair permissons always get's this (every time):

    What exact Mac OS X version on what exact MBP do you have? And how much RAM and free HDD capacity do you have?
    Btw, it is NOT a virus, as they don't exist.

    Mac osx 10.6.6
    Macbook Pro 4.1 santa rosa, 2007-2008?
    4 GB ram (non apple)
    500 GB HD 23 GB free (non apple)

    To add to the problem: I need to force the machine to turn off most of the time, and sometimes when I start it again it dosen't respond at all...
    Might it be connected to a hardware or software problem?

    The culprit is most likely you having less than 5% free HDD space, and it is recommended to have at least 10% to 20% free HDD capacity.

    Have you tried repairing permissions or the disk via Disk Utility started from the Restore DVD?
    Guide on how to use Disk Utility from the restore / installation DVD.

    It is called "bump", unless you wanted to dump something though.
    Anyway, have you freed up some HDD capacity, to at least 10%, or repaired permissions via Disk Utility started from the Restore or Retail DVD?

    Do you still have Apple Care?
    Have you taken a look at System Preferences > Sound >> Output in both instances?
