Faster Mac

In yesterday'sthreadwhere I explored buying a new Mac with a dozen awesome Mac experts.Brian Criscuolofounda way to make my current Mac perform as it was designed to. Here's what I did that made the difference:

1. Create a new user with full Administrator priviledges.

2. Log off. Log on as the new user.

3. Do some stuff.

4. Log off. Log on as the old user.

Voila. Fast Mac!Zzzzzip.

Amazing.

I kind of thought this was an easy to use computer?

Oh well.
