    Horrible Write Speed!!!! HALP!!!
    any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    i own a 24 in, 2.16 intel core 2 duo imac, with 2 GB of ram, and a 250 GB HDD,
    i wanted to earse and install due to desire for a clean slate of my home PC,
    and now when installing ANYTHING (ie: chrome, firefox, vuze, etc) it takes FOREVER to copy into the applications folder!

    Did i do something wrong?
    Should i go back and do another clean wipe?
    is the HDD fried?
    i am using my OSX disc ( 10.6.3 )


    thank you in advance!

    Boot with your OS X disk and use Disk Utility > Disk First Aid to run a hardware check on your iMac hard drive.
    Please post your Mac (or other) specs and MacOS version in your post, your profile or your signature. It helps us to help you better.

    I'm leaving now to go and find myself. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.
