Take a pill D. It was a friendly joke, nothing more.
My advice to reds4256rose, is to NOT take the suggestion that you just inadvisably gave. There may be NO reason to reformat the drive. Another thing you got wrong, is the fact that it's far preferable to simply download the OS (fully updated) from Apple's 'App Store' (welcome to the 21st century).
If you want to reignite our last flamewar (you know, the one where you kept making one incorrect statement after another, about Macs,) I'll be glad to list them individually, to remind you and our fellow forum members that your Mac knowledge-base, is about 8-10 years out of date. Otherwise, if you feel the need to reassert your 'Alpha-Mac User' status, try sending a PM.
My suggestion, is to hold off on reformatting the drive. That's usually unnecessary on Macs, whereas it's often your only option on Windows machines. Slowdowns on Macs are usually the result of something else. There's no reason to use a sledgehammer when you should be using tweezers. There are differences in the way the UNIX kernel is built, as compared to Windows. This allows for FAR more stability than Windows, in terms of application instructions being insulated from core commands.
Tread VERY lightly when using CCleaner. It's EXTREMELY easy to accidentally wipe your hard drive! There are also some known problems running it on PowerBooks running OS X 10.5.8. We can talk about that.
My apologies for the geek-speak, but Mac problems should be approached differently than you would Windows problems.
Sorry that you had to witness the 'personal drama'. Send me a private message and I'll be happy to help with any issues.
