So, I've had my iBook for about two years now and haven't had a lick of trouble with it. But recently I've been encountering major slowdowns.

I'm thinking of just doing a fresh reinstall on this bad boy to hopefully bring it back to its glory days. What do you all think? I normally don't resort to such drastic measures but, 1) I can back everything up on my external; and 2) I think this is the quickest solution.

Does anyone have any other pieces of advice?
QUOTE Thanks
