Linda

Linda,

You need to give us WAYYYYY more information!!!

- What model computer do you have?
- how much ram?
- how many program's do you have open at the same time & what are they?
- what sort computer work are you doing?
- when was the last time you restarted your computer (instead of just putting it to sleep)?
- when was the last time you repaired your "disk permissions"?

- Nick

I advise you to use Onyx, or Leopard cache cleaner often.
