Currently Being ModeratedMar 27, 2011 10:59 PM (in response to AerinC)Sophos is a real problem here, but on a PPC G5 PowerMac, so I never installed it on anything else.
My eMac/1.42/2G/10.5.8 has about 60 to 70 Processes showing, can check 10.4.11 tomorrow if you wish, but while it depends on so many factors, I don't consider yours abnormal at all.
do I need to do some kind of cleaning? And if I do need cleaning, what should I do?
If anything, At this point I think you should get Applejack...
After installing, reboot holding down CMD+s, (+s), then when the DOS like prompt shows, type in...
Then let it do all 6 of it's things.
At least it'll eliminate some questions if it doesn't fix it.
The 6 things it does are...
Correct any Disk problems.
Clear out Cache Files.
Repair/check several plist files.
Dump the VM files for a fresh start.
Trash old Log files.
First reboot will be slower, sometimes 2 or 3 restarts will be required for full benefit... my guess is files relying upon other files relying upon other files!

I did have one question though.
When it says it will clean up old log files, will I lose my amsn conversation logs? They're .log files that open with "Console". I could back them up, but I'd rather not lose them.Macbook, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
Currently Being ModeratedMar 31, 2011 7:09 PM (in response to AerinC)I'd back them up to be safe, not familiar with them.
