Something is different, because now in the drop down apple menu I get two Restart, Shut Down, and Log Out options. Please don't tell me 48 hours and it's time for a system restore already?

My first Apple computer, and I'm liking it a lot so far, until now where it won't stfu every time i hover over anything.

to elaborate more, when i click Macintosh HD i hear a click, and whenever a page in safari finishes loading an annoying chime sound

i created a second bare account to see if it happened on it, and it did not

I would take on that second account and delete the first....when you delete it it will ask you if you want to save all the files/personal stuff. You can access this later and bring it all into your new account.

Don't worry about that. You will likely never have to reinstall the OS.
There is always a list of things to do before you resort to the Windows, "Slash & Burn" technique of reinstalling the OS to fix an issue.
I have been using OS X since it was released almost 7 years ago, and I have never had to reinstall any version of it ever... not once. I was always able to correct the problem by other means. :black:

This happaned to me for a while when I was trying to refresh a page in Safari im used to F5 doing it, I then tried Command + F5, and it started saying everything I did...

Anyway I eventually solved it by clicking the same thing again...

Oh and how do I refresh safari on the keyboard :O
