    Hi Golda Endona, I want to help you with your problem, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box?

    I'm guessing that you have a trial version of Mac Keeper and it wants you to purchase the full? I would actually encourage you to get Mac Keeper depending on what kind of deal you can get. I have it for my mac and I've found it to be really helpful.

MacKeeper is scam ware. Close whatever browser allowed it to rear its ugly head, and Quit Safari or Firefox to quit the spinning wheel. If its got a tight grip on your system hold the off/on button down till computer does a hard shut off. Try not to do this frequently. Run Disc Utility and verify Permissions-Fix permissions and remember to have Block Pop Ups checked. MacKeeper will bypass the pop ups block anyway but quickly close a browser window that is usu. blank looking and be careful clicking on ads, streaming video, etc that allows it in the gate. Run and Ap Cleaner and get rid of MacKeeper immediately and hunt and destroy ALL remnants of it on your Mac.
Check out info from Apple @ MacKeeper. Do not install MacKeeper

Wheel hop rear wheels

you have bad shocks-and- or tires that need replaced-while car is setting try to push down on the rear and see if it goes down easily and then bounces when released-jack rear end up-try to spin tires and see if they spin freely-check tires for cupping or funny wear patterns-you also may have brake shoe that are coming apart and locking a wheel up without putting on the brakes-so lots of options here-hope you get it solved-cheers Denny

Spinning rainbow wheel and crunching

The "beachball" and sounds do typically mean that your drive is failing. Your plan to back up is the right choice.

You should be able to replace the hard drive yourself. Opening the case and replacing the drive is exceedingly simple on the mac pro.

How do remove the centre hub from a 1996 nissan terrano. im trying replace the brake rotors

Take the wheel off. then the grease cap. There will be a keeper that has 2 screws, take those out, then remove the keeper. You will see another keeper, but this one is actually a nut. There are two round holes on the keeper, take a punch, or a common screwdriver, and a hammer and tap it off. If will spin. Make sure that you keep these parts free of dirt, as the wheel bearing will pick it up and ruin it. Once you have these removed, then the wheel assembly will slide right off. When you are installing them make sure that you have seated the wheel unit on before you thread the nut on. Tighten the nut as far as you can using a screwdriver to spin it on, and then tap it tight with the screwdriver and hammer, make sure that you do not get it too tight, or you will cause the bearing to wear prematurely.

I was browsing on the net then the colorful circle appear and just started spinning and will not let me do anything. wont even let me turn the computer off. what is this????

Power down. Take your RAM out and re-insert firmly. Nothing? Take your RAM out and look at it to make sure you got the right type of RAM for your Mac. Nothing? Buy new upgraded max RAM. Recommended brands are OWC, Crucial, and Samsung. Get 2 GB of RAM to put in each slot and that should help you out with the colorful spinning wheel of death. The wheel shows up whenever the program your using does not have enough memory to allocate for the resources your using.

Also, you can take disc 1 of the 2 gray discs and go into disc utilities and do a repair permissions and then do a repair hard drive.

Imac not booting

Hi, Sorry you're having trouble,
OK, so much is happening here...
Can you shut the Mac down ( by holding the power on button for 5 seconds or so ) and then, make sure your keyboard is connected and that nothing is resting o the keyboard possibly pressing down on a key without you knowing it....
Now, start up your Mac and VEY QUICKLY, press down on the ( alt ) key and hold it down until you see a blue screen with a large Right pointing arrow and a circular arrow.
This is the start up disk selection screen. You should eventually see your Hard Drive appear at which point, you click on your hard drive and then the right arrow to start up the mac on your Hard drive.
If your disk is still OK, it will boot properly.
If your disk does not appear in the blue selection screen, it means you either no longer have a valid bootable system on that disk or it is KAPUT.
So, if this is the case, you will need to get a new hard drive.
How old is your mac, what model is it what Mac OS is it ?
