PLEASE!!!! My G4 powerbook is running extremely slow!!!!


I put a post on here before. Someone told me to put my powerbook in single user mode and enter /sbin/fsck -yf. My powerbook is still running slow. It just started doing this over night. It takes a good solid minute just to open a program. Does anyone else have any ideas on how to fix this?

Do you have 15 % or more empty space on your Powerbook? If you have less, that could be a likely slowness cause.

Did you install any new programs or do any system / security updates just before this started to happen?

you could as well try running periodic scripts in terminal; "sudo periodic -daily -monthly -weekly" (withouth the "" in terminal).
