    Dejunking a laptop?
    I apologize if this has been asked many times, and if it has, all I need is a link to the thread. My question is:

    What can I do to get my PowerBook G4 to run faster? I'm not talking about adding hardware or anything, just some way to clean up the computer so it runs like it did the first time it was ever turned on.

    Thanks!

    What are the specs? To be more specific, how much RAM do you have?

    Delete some stuff you don't use and run something like Onyx to clean up scripts permissions etc

    Well I ran all the cleanup software that came with Onyx (and one called Maintenance that they had on the website also), and it seems to be working much better. Thanks for the help!
