    A virus maybe.

    Before I get flamed.

    Mac's get virus'.

    Just not as many as Windows OS' because there are more Windows PC's out there....

    Think of the math.

    yea, its just common sense to create a virus for windows.
    that is, if u want to infect as many people as possible.
    but if someone wants to hurt mac users, then yea, u might have one lol

    There like a whole 4 viruses out there for mac -.- and it's probably just your hard drive being a bit clogged up. Download Onyx and clear things up a bit

    I think it's my hard drive.

    I know some of it is because of the fonts I've got loaded, way too many but I don't want to delete them all because then my Mac's screwed

    I'll try Onxy, easy to use? I'm fairly new to Macs

    OnyX is a really nice app for cleaning caches, and performing maintenance on your Mac. I highly recommend it. Also, it's really easy to use.

    As for fonts, I'd suggest Linotype FontExplorer X to manage them. It's a really nice app with an intuitive UI, and will help you out a lot.

    If you're looking to save space, Monolingual is a great way to start. It can delete languages you don't use from your system (you choose which ones to keep/trash). If you only keep English, it can save you up to 3GB of space. Keep in mind that you should ALWAYS have 10GB of space open on any computer's hard drive.

    All of the apps listed above are free, by the way.
