Your Apple Computer – How Well Is It Running ?

People love their Apple computers but occasionally things will go wrong and you will search for a solution on the internet.However there are some solutions you should ignore.

If you don’t think it is running that well , slow to start up , slow to do anything the one thing not to do is load a “ mystery program “ that will hopefully improve it.

Programs such as Clean My Mac , Speed Up Mac , and the dreaded Mackeeper do little apart from cause issues.

Also if you have an antivirus on there do yourselves a favour and remove it , you don’t really need it.

Instead look at the programs that startup when you start your mac.

Open System Preferences and click on Users & Groups, then click the Login Items tab. You’ll see a list of apps (and even files and folders) that open every time you log in. This list is different for each user account on your Mac.

Items usually end up on this list because apps added them to it. Most apps that do so ask you for permission first or have an “Open at login” or similar checkbox in its settings. In any case, you can add an item to the list manually by clicking the (+) button, or remove an item by selecting it and clicking the minus sign (-) button.
