Hello I recently updated my operating software to OS X Version 10.7.5 but my MacBook is running so SLOW! Is there anything that I can do to make it faster? Like a defrag on a windows pc?

Since OS 10.7.5 was primarily available thru the Mac App Store (and hasn't been available for the past 4+ months)…how did you "recently" perform this upgrade to 10.7.5?

As far as the slow computer…defragging like you would on a Windows computer is probably not the problem or the first thing to do. Read some of the links in my signature for some things to try.

Did you install over your previous OS or do a clean install?
