    I have not looked at it yet, but a family friend is asking me to look at her Macbook because she thinks its slower than it use to. Well I want to bring a USB drive with me with different programs that may help it before I drive over there. What programs/solutions do you think could slow down a Macbook over normal use? I think its only 1-2 years old so Im pretty positive it wont need to be reformatted.

    Then either deleted the ~/Library/Caches and /Library/Caches or use Onyx to do so.

    Chances are this will fix the slowness.

    unlike windows, my macs have never just slowed down randomly
