So... here is the deal.
Lately my macbook has been acting all weird on me. Sometimes it decided to work super slow and more often it freezes on me.
So i got two theories - I got a virus through paralels... i dont know if thats actually possible, but thats just a theory.
And number 2 ==> is there any soft i can run to clean it? Like get rid of unneeded files or, just clean it. I heard about leopard cache cleaner, but i could not download it. So any help?

Thanks in advance

While it is possible to get a virus by using Windows through Parallels, that virus wouldn't affect OS X, only Windows.

Get yourself a program called MainMenu and run the repair permissions and maintenence tasks.

also you could use appdelete to get rid of any surplus applications and their associated files
