    Wow, a lot of great help in this thread!  I apologize if I'm in the wrong place, but it would be handy if I could get help here.  I just updated from 4 GB of RAM to 12 GB.  I'm not seeing the performance improvements I was hoping for, so now I'm looking through the discussions to figure out things that can help.  Below are my results from EtreCheck.  I've had problems uninstalling WD SmartWare, and ended up using the MacKeeper Smart Uninstaller.  Unfortunately, it left the Launch Daemons behind.

     

    Any recommendations?

    MacKeeper is generally considered in these forums to be a huge source of problems, something to be avoided if you want a smooth running Mac.

     

    WD has created an uninstaller for its utilities that are causing problems with Mavericks. You can download it at http://support.wdc.com/product/download.asp?groupid=124&sid=214&lang=en

    1  As R-C-R says.

    WD has to be uninstalled. Installing Mackeeper was a great mistake, it has to go again.

    2  On Mackeepers site there is an uninstall; (you do not have to answer the questions):   http://mackeeper.zeobit.com/uninstall_mackeeper;

    check your Keychain for entries from zeobit,  911, and  Mackeeper.

    Maybe there are leftovers afterwards, we'll see that in a new Etrecheck list.

    3  In SystemPreferences/Users&Groups/LoginItems   remove the WDQuickView entry with the minus sign underneath.

    4  There are two LaunchDaemons folders: /Library/LaunchDaemons  and  /System/Library/LaunchDaemons:

    delete all entries in there  which begin with   com.wdc. and com.zeobit.

    5  the same in /Library/LaunchAgents/  and  User/Library/LaunchAgents.

    I can't figure out how to open either of the LaunchDaemons folders.  I figured out how to get the Library to show, and the LaunchAgents folder, but not LaunchDaemons.

     

    Sorry to be a numbskull...

    If no one spotted this, there is something called Antivirus listed in your top processes.

    Whatever antivirus you have installed on your iMac, you need to completely uninstall this per the developer's instructions.

    Check the deveolper's website to see how this needs to be uninstalled.

    Antivirus isn't necessary with Macs and OS X and can actually affect OS X performance.

    Just guessing, but I think you are looking in the user Library folder (the one in your home folder), not the root level Library folder or the Library folder inside the root level System folder.

     

    The path names Lex mentioned are the key to understanding this. By convention, "/Library/" represents the root level Library folder & "System/Library/" represents the one inside the root level System one. Each item following a slash in the path name represents an item inside the preceding folder, so for example "/System/Library/LaunchDaemons" represents the LaunchDaemons folder inside the Library folder inside the System folder.

     

    Strictly speaking, "User/Library/LaunchAgents" isn't a real path name. The full path name would be "/Users/{your user name}/Library/LaunchAgents", where {your user name} is the name of your home folder. The whole "/Users/{your user name}" part is usually abbreviated with a tilde, so "~/Library/LaunchAgents" is an equally valid path name for the LaunchAgents folder in your home folder.

     

    But regardless of all that, it is much simpler & usually more goof-proof to run the uninstallers we have mentioned to remove MacKeeper & the WD utilities. Afterwards, you can use EtreCheck or the Finder (with the proper path names) to check on the results.

    I think that comes from the com.zeobit.MacKeeper.AntiVirus.plist launch daemon, so uninstalling MacKeeper should get rid of it.

    You were right!  I didn't even realize I was looking at folders within the current user, rather than at the root level.  I guess I know just enough to be dangerous...

     

    It looks like I've finally wiped out all the MacKeeper files, which took AntiVirus with it.

     

    Anything else I should do?  Thanks again for all the help!

    Etrecheck: Now I am satisfied !

    I wasn't there to explain about the Library folders but luckily R-C-R was there to explain. I do not have the tilde sign on my keyboard, so I avoid it. Thought it was clear enough.

    The Mackeeper thing is gone now. Don't fall again for these type of apps....

    So, after following everybody's advice, I got my old 2009 iMac working almost like new.  But it was bothering me that I had those "shadows" on my screen caused by internal dust build-up.  So I stupidly tried cleaning it out, following somebody's video on YouTube.  All was going well, until I broke a bunch of pins off when reconnecting an internal cable...

     

    I shudder to think how much the fix would have cost, and I needed a working computer quickly.  So I ran up to the store and bought a new one, and refreshed it from my last backup from the old computer.

     

    It was working well, but suddenly slowed down.  I'm getting some problems I didn't have before, so I ran a new Etrecheck:

    After a reboot, a couple of the problems cleared themselves up.  But Aperture is still taking forever after I told it to detect missing faces.  Running EtreCheck again, I see some interesting results.  Should I be concerned that Aperture is using 134% of CPU?  And how is that possible?

    OMG, so you mean that we have solved your problems, just to have you wreck the mac ??

    Your new one is beautiful :: and it has iLife bundled !!

     

    Aperture just has a new update, did you install that already?

    And it is probably rebuilding the Library in the first days of a new computer, so give it a few days....

    Check if there are updates for HP and your other non-apple apps and equipment.

    Your new Mac has a 4 core CPU so the maximum possible CPU use is 400%.

    No. it is not too much, and probably the rebuilding in the background as I suggested. Give it a few days.
