    The obvious solution is to have the DVD drive repaired.

    But to avoid a complete rebuild start by using something like AppCleaner and uninstall any software you don't need anymore. Delete any big old files you might have hanging around you don't want any more. Empty your trash. Clear any stuff of the desktop that doesn't need to be there.

    Then open disk utility and run verify/repair disk and repair permissions.

    Then install Onyx and run the monthly scripts.
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .
