hey guys im new to the forum, so sorry to kick start my first thread looking for help. my new 2gb 13" macbook pro which i have had for about 5 months is already starting to slow down significantly. i mean it was amazingly fast at the start now it lags when i press cmd T in safari to open a new tab, the beachball comes up and starts having a whale of a time its seriously making an appearance all to often. various over things seem to take alot longer plus windows will crash sometimes and have to be force quitted while the beachball laughs on, any ideas would be very much appreciated. cheers

Download and install Onyx for your version of Mac OS X. Apple Menu > About this Mac to find out what you have. If you have 10.5.x, get the version for Leopard. If you have 10.6.x, get the one for Snow Leopard. Onyx will let you run all of the proper maintenance scripts.

Also, how much free space is on your hard disk? If you downloaded a bunch of crap and filled it up, that'll slow things down for sure! HFS+ partitions don't like it when they're up to 80 to 85% full.

Also, if your trash is full, your desktop is full of items, or you have many startup items added, this will slow it down significantly.
