I just removed over 1000 cookies. They were bogging the system down to the point of having some pages freeze. I then closed Safari. I launched Safari again a few minutes later and all the cookies were back, even though the only site I went to was the Apple open page.
After having some issues with chrome (huge cache) I decided to remove it.¬† I also removed the shortcut/icon from the dock.¬† Every time I restart the computer I have a question mark where Crome used to be.¬† I zapped the PRAM, repaired permissions, even restarted and went trough the permission repair process at startup.¬† I tried to install Chrome and uninstall through a3rd party uninstaller and get the same.¬† It does not appear in my startup applications I have no other users registered.¬† Terminal also starts up automatically at every startup (not in startup items).¬† It is driving me up the wall!¬† I even removed the desktop plist.¬† What else can be done?

I just realized my Archive.mbox (~/Library/Mail/V2/Mailboxes) is quite big (8.5GB) and I decided to remove old mails with large attachments.¬†
As I use GMail account via POP3, first I removed mails from the Google account and I freed up about 1.5GB extra space. Later, I searched for mails with attachments in Mail.app, then sorted then and started to remove and emptied the trash. This operation was quite weird as some of them where moved to the Trash folder, some not.¬†As I was controlling the space of the Mailboxes folder this is what I noticed:
- Archive.mbox - the size of the mbox didn't change. - Deleted Messages.mbox increases while removing another mails then decreased while wiping it out (this is what I expected).
I removed a lot of mails and didn't free up ANY space!Also, while googling I found out about "Mail Downloads" folder which is moved from Library to ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.mail/Data/Library/Mail Downloads. As I set "Remove unedited downloads" to "When Mail Quits" can I simply remove all subdirs from this dictionary to save some space? This folder is only used for copy of attachments, right?¬†¬†
I just updated to iCloud/Lion and now I can't permanently delete any of my me.com messages.¬† This only happens in the iCloud mailbox.¬† I can permanently delete messages from all of my other email accounts.¬† I will delete a message in the iCloud mailbox and when I go to my inbox, the message is back. I checked my preferences and I have "Move deleted message to the Trash mailbox" selected and "Store deleted messages on the server" not selected.¬†
I have a question about photostream.¬† Is it true that ALL photos in my photo stream are permanently saved in iPhoto (even without me moving into events which i would probably do twice a month)?¬† If the event i can't move photo's from the photostream in iphoto to events, are they ALWAYS saved on my mac drive even there there is a 1000/30 day limit in photostream?

I have put the wrong driver on my IMac running OSX 10.7.3 and need to go to an older driver. I've tried to find out where the drivers are but no sucess. There is a driver for XBox 360 game controllers that I loaded and it appears in System Preferences but controller hardware is not recognized by the driver even though the System profiler see's the XBox 360 controller listed under USB devices. I'm trying to remove the current driver and load an older driver which some people say works. I can't find any system file with the name XBox 360 in it on my computer but when I try to install an older version of the driver it doesn't allow me because it says I have a newer version on my drive. So in general, how do you remove non functioning drivers?

When photo stream photos go into your iphoto library, do they stay there permanently or do they disappear over time? like in the events tab on iphoto I have october 11 photo stream, nov 11 photo stream, etc. Are they gonna stay there or do I have to save them?
I've googled and search here, and I just can't find the answer to this.
I renamed one of my computers at home. Now both instances of it show up in the Shared section of the finder sidebar and I can't remove the old one. When I do a Get Info, it shows as a PC Server, but I can't actually access anything on it. Is there any way to keep this from showing up?
