10.3.4 update may have caused a problem

It's not really too big a problem, but it really pisses ME off. You see, on my G3 500 Mhz iMac I have NEVER been able to play a Gameboy Advance ROM at top speed on ANY emulator. The one that comes closest is Visualboy Advance. However, at my Dad's place, I have actually been able to play GBA ROMs (on Visualboy Advance) at top speed, even though he only has a G3 iBook 700 Mhz, with actually LESS RAM than mine (he has 256 MB). So, obviously the extra 200 Mhz made the difference (although when I played a GBA ROM on his iBook, it still took about 30 seconds from opening the game for it to reach top speed). Unfortunately, when I played a game a couple weeks back, it wasn't at top speed anymore! The only reason my Dad and I can think of for this is due to the 10.3.4 update. It could be the thing that's slowing down my game (and I don't feel like playing it anymore due to its lack of speed)! Has anyone else experienced anything similar (that is, any kinds of slow-downs)?

Note: REALLY, REALLY sorry for talking about ROMS!

You did repair permissions after the update? And you're running Mac Janitor or crons?

No need for janitor. Just go to terminal and type in:

sudo periodic daily weekly monthly

Since it seems that you don't know about this, I assume that you haven't done this at all, hence "daily weekly monthly" arguments.

The command I use = sudo sh /etc/daily again for weekly (the long one) and again for monthly ie sudo sh /etc/monthly
