    Is ShapeShifter supposed to slow down boot up time?
    Ever since I bought ShapeShifter and changed my desktop around, my MacBook has taken 15 to 20 seconds longer to boot up. Also, if I click on my Macintosh HD icon after boot up, it takes a couple of seconds for everything to show up. I have 2GB of memory, I'd think that'd be enough to handle the program. Is this normal?

    shapeshifter shouldnt be causing a boot up lag. But just to make sure, try disabling shapshifter next time you are going to reboot.

    In the shapeshifter pref pane uncheck the enable shapeshifter box.
