sorry if this has been discussed endlessly, but.....


I seem to have to be forever repairing permissions and recently re-installed the system fro 10.6 CD, then software update to 10.6.8 again.


I mostly only use a few programmes: DxO optics (photoprocessing), GraphicConverter (photo-sorting etc) Safari, Mail, Nikon Transfer (getting the images from the camera). I would use Nikon Capture more only daren't. They are all latest versions. Don't want to move to 10.7 as I also occasionally use progs needing Rosetta (Color-it & FocusMagic plug-in for CS4)


The progs seem to fight each other for memory/CPU attention, then slow down when they don't get it. Safari is at least as bad as the others, though its DxO that actually needs the power.


There is no obvious hardware fault.


Is there anything else I can do to try to improve things?

Macbook pro 15, Mac OS X (10.6.8), 4GB RAM 2.4GHz
