Just installed a fresh new OS, + updates, Quicktime, Virtual DJ, and CleanMyMac.

Now when I boot it, it just gets into a loop.

What it exactly does is:
1. Giving me the original sound,
2. Showing the white, grey boot screen,
3. Giving me the loading circle,
4. Turns into a black screen and begins at #1.

I already did a hard disk check, and that turns out to be 'OK'.
I also repaired permissions with the install/repair disk, fixed a couple things but not what I desired.

Also, I'm not that known to the professional talk, so could you please hand me over simple commands I can pull out?

Thanks.

Sounds like you'll be reinstalling OS X soon.
Don't forget to NOT install CleanMyMac - completely unnecessary, possibly dangerous software. Have you found anyone who recommends CleanMyMac? A Mac is not a Windows PC!!!!!!!!

I used that program for a long time and didn't found any problems with it, it's like a CCleaner for mac.
