Ok, this is a collection of all the problems I've been having with my iMac lately that I've made posts for in other forums but no one has yet to give me an answer that fixes the problem. First off, in Finder on the very first layer of my hard drive, some folders that are supposed to be invisible are not, namely "etc", "tmp", and "var". And they won't let me change them back (and yes, I tried making all invisible folders visible, then back to invisible. No dice) Second, Camino is starting very slowly for me. Safari works fine, but Camino takes at least 30 seconds to even start loading my home page and I get a spinning beach ball. I tried uninstalling the whole thing, all its preference files and cache, and then reinstalling it. No dice. I also noticed that Spotlight stopped working for me. I'll type something in, and nothing happens. Oh, also, I have it set to auto log in to my account, but it never does. It always stops at the login screen first no matter how many times I go in and tell it to log in automatically. And I also forgot to mention, except for the first problem with finder, these problems are isolated to my account, but the Administrator account I set up seems unaffected. This is all just the culmination of all the other problems I've had with this machine lately. I've archived and installed once to try and fix my keyboard but that didn't work until I upgraded to 10.4.6. But then I got a few power outages (about 4), I installed a program that gave me a kernel panic, and then a lot of bugs started. So I restored a backup of my system from my external, upgraded to 10.4.6, and now all these problems. I'm thinking of just doing another archive and install and just starting over. Unless you guys know of a way to fix all these problems.
