Unwanted pop ups on my mac


Chances are you downloaded and installed something that not only wasn't needed, but completely unnecessary for a Mac (MacKeeper or something else). These apps ALSO install unwanted and unasked for browser re-direct software.

You need to do two things immediately, followed by one very important step after that.
  1. If you haven't already done so, download a different browser software as backup for future issues (Firefox, Chrome or Opera are accepted as best alternatives).
  2. Click the link below for Adware Medic. Install this software, run the program, and then please donate to the developer if you feel a smooth running Mac is worth it to you. It will ask to restart your computer once it's done.
  3. Download AppZapper or AppCleaner. AppZapper gives you five free zaps and then you need to buy it, or just use AppCleaner to remove ANY AND ALL "Clean Up/Optimizing" software, ANY AND ALL anti-virus software... if you haven't noticed by now, AV software on a Mac is pretty pointless since it didn't snag your browser re-direct software.
That should solve your problems. If not, let us know here!

Tips To Make Your PC Boot Up Faster


If your pc is taking ages to start up , then follow this advise to speed things along and get you going faster.

1. Uninstall Old Programs and Stop Unwanted Services From Starting.

The main culprit making a PC slow to boot is programs. If you have programs installed on your computer that you are no longer using , you should remove them.
These programs often have background processes running which not only uses your RAM but also takes time to load at start up.

A useful program I found is Tune Up Utilities. This program has a feature called start up manager which will allow you to stop unwanted programs from starting up when you turn on your PC. Not only that , but the software also identifies programs and processes which you should keep running. A free trail version is available HERE.

You can also do this in Windows Vista and Windows 7 by going to run in your start screen and typing in msconfig. Then go to the start up tab and deselect everything you don't want to have start when you start your computer.

If your run command is not visible , go to command prompt and type in msconfig.

2. Windows loading screen

You know that page with the animation? That takes forever right? You can actually remove it without much trouble and it will save about 10 seconds on your start up time. Here's what you do.

Go to run in your start screen and type in msconfig.
Go to the boot tab and select "noguiboot" checkbox.

This will cut the animation getting the computer to start faster. If you have a duel boot system , you can also set the timeout for that menu by making the timeout 3 seconds instead of 30 seconds.

3. Defrag and clean the Registry

Download a free program called CCleaner (HERE) and install it. This program will remove invalid registry entries. This will mean less time that the computer is looking through registry keys and thus improved start up and system performance. Just click "run cleaner" and it will automatically search for and remove invalid keys.

You may also want to defragment the registry. Open Tune Up Utilities and select all functions under the first window called "maintain system" and select "defragment registry".

This will also help a little for system performance and start up time.

4. Edit Your Bios

The bios by default contain some options that are redundant and can be switched off to save on start up time. For instance :


  • Make your first boot device your hard drive.
  • Select Quick boot or "do not check memory"
  • If you are using a graphics card , disable the on board as it's only using memory.
Following these few steps should save you about 30-45 seconds on start up and improve overall system performance.

Please rate this solution if you found it to be of help.

Video jitter on youtube on power pc


Try using the browser Google Chrome, it has flash built in and it is a bit faster.
If this doesn't work, you'll have to kill some programs to get more processing power. Press and hold the command key, and then tap tab while still holding command to cycle through your running programs. Let go to stop on one you kill, and then press Command + q to kill it. Do this with as many programs as you can to get better performance, you can always start them up again later.
If none of this works, you may need to upgrade your graphics card...sorry.

I just install 1.5 GB in my Powermac Quicksilver G4 and now it won't power on. What's wrong?


Make sure access door is closed and latched completely & try pulling power cable for 30 sec then reattach and try restart. If those don't work - contact macsales.com (excellent Apple/Mac folks)

I would like to install coral4 to my mac. I was told to purchase vmfusion and then I would be abel to open and install coral in to my mac. I did install he vm fusion program but it still won't down load or...


You must actually be running Windows in VM Fusion first.
There's a program called Crossover that allows some Windows apps to run on a Mac without Windows. It works very well and is worth considering.
I have a company who have switched over to Macs running their Access database this way.

How to install and use mac External desktop hard drives to store music, movies, etc. Not time Machine


Just turn the time machine off for each disk you want to use for data. It's easy. When a mac asks You during insertion "Use the disk JOHN DOE as a time machine backup?" Say "No". That's all. Or, if You don't want to use a Time mashine as well, just turn it off in a system preferences - time machine, or by clicking on time machine icon on menu bar.

Not running programs downloaded


please check the file extension,

if it's .exe(if no icons show up for the game ), mac may not support it directly, you will have to download cross over chromium from here
www.codeweavers.com/services/ports/chromium/

it doesn't guarantee that the exe will work, since mac uses .app instead of .exe

Imac g4 cd drive


It;'s not a great Idea flipping the mac over they have a special stand to put them on when working on them. But it should be able to cope with it. Your mac is relatively old now. With all the moving around it could have just given up the ghost.

They are quite tricky to work on with the hard drive sitting on top and the cables running over and down the side there is a stack of heat generated there. Just make sure you put ll the thermal back in. If it's not a miss seated connection it could be a number of things. Cable, heads. Trouble shooting is quite tricky. As it is a desktop, in a lot of cases it is cheaper to buy an external DVD reader/writer. They are faster now!

You should be able to install OK when it is in terminal mode. You could run disk utility but more than likely you'll have to run the installation again.

Sorry, not much help.
