Any kernel update would be announced by Apple; it's open source BTW. Have you tried repair permissions and been running crons?

use Mac Janitor, or: Finder, Applications. Utilities Terminal type (switching to root - superuser) sudo sh /etc/daily > this needs to be done /weekly (instead of daily) and monthly. again with all apps closed

Well the admin password to your first user loggin name is tha same as the password you type when logging in. The root password doesn't exist until you enable the root user, then you will see a new user name on the loggin screen called other

I am almost positive it is a RAM issue because when i bought it at an apple reseller store they put another 512 mb of 3rd party RAM in... **** this is gonna cost me or i could just take out the 512 stick and see if it runs better. that will determine if it is the ram. :mad:
