OS X :: Why Doesn't Mac Delete Unnecessary Files After Removing Programs

Aug 18, 2009

It seems that whenever I uninstall an application, there is always an empty folder of the program I uninstalled in Library>Application Support and possibly others. Why wouldn't OS X delete those automatically after I uninstalled them? They obviously don't take up too much space cause it's just an empty folder, but why doesn't os x automatically delete it?

Aug 7, 2009

How can I get my iMac to completely empty my trash? My delete secure trash always starts at 9,500 or more items to delete.

PowerPC :: Completely Removing G3 IMac CRT

Jan 26, 2009

I've been given a half torn apart iMac G3 700mhz (which still runs), and plan on putting it's bare essential parts into a case I'm making. I've taken out the drives and logic board with down converter, but now I'm stuck behind the CRT. I know it's very dangerous, but I need to get around it to get to the board underneath it. Do I have to discharge the CRT or could I just snip the suction cable connected to it without any risk? I plan on recycling the thing, but right now I just need it out of my way.

Software :: IMac Won't Boot Completely

Jun 23, 2008

Attempting to fix neighbor's iMac. (OS 10.4.11) Won't boot completely. I'm running DiskWarrior as I type. It's been running over an hour so far, and I'm up to 123 overlapped files on step 6 (out of 12)

1) What are they, how do they happen, and how to prevent?
2) Happened once before on son's computer and only way to fix was to archive & install. Don't know if DW can fix it this time or not--won't until DW finishes.

(Have updated # of files several times since I started typing!!!)

IMac :: Intel Core 2 Duo OS X 10.6.5 Completely Freezes And Crashes

Nov 24, 2010

I have a problem with my iMac 2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo (2 GB 667 MHz DDR 2 SDRAM), running OSX 10.6.5. OSX crashes and freezes all the time. Nothing works anymore. Sometimes it just freezes, and I can only move my cursor, but nothing reacts anymore. Sometimes the screen blacks (or sometimes blanks) out or shows the weird moving colours as shown on the photo I just took below: After restart, it often happens again and again. Then the iMac is fine for a couple of days, before it freezes again. Can anyone diagnose the problem from the info above?

IMac :: System Completely Freezes At Random Times

Feb 4, 2009

The last 2 days my iMac has completely frozen on me at random times. Frozen meaning, no mouse movement, no keyboard activity (caps lock not responding) and no OSX activity whatsoever. Temp at the time 41C, CPU Usage at 21% or smth, Fan speed at around 1200rpm. However, I don't get the infamous kernel panic error. I haven't changed anything hardware wise. I did have a couple of months ago the graphics glitch problem. Last software update was the iWork one. iMac is Aluminum 20' with C2D 2.4 and ATi 2600 Pro.

IMac :: Core I7 CPU Usage When Machine Completely Idle

Nov 21, 2009

For those of you with a new i7 iMac, if your machine is completely idle, what does your CPU usage look like in Activity Monitor? I'm routinely seeing Finder consume 70-90% of my CPU. The single CPU bar meter view in the dock is basically pegged most of the time. The graph shows it as system usage. If I open the CPU History window, all 8 threads look like they're just about maxed out.

IMac :: Can't Delete Trash / Saying Don't Have Permission To Delete

Mar 6, 2009

I dual boot my iMac using Boot Camp and I'm having problems deleting a bunch of files in my Trash. A short history. I purchased a OWC external hard drive case and I've been going through my old hard drives which originally were used in my Windows XP computer. The drives were contaminated with Windows viruses and so I installed the drives one by one in the OWC case and proceeded to delete files and programs which I didn't need in each drive while in OS X and keeping the files I wanted to save in each respective drive. Now what I'm faced with is a Trash bin filled with Windows XP software (including Windows XP itself) which I cannot delete because OS X says I don't have permission to delete those files.

IMac PPC :: G5 Will Not Run Programs

Apr 15, 2012

I recently picked up a G5 20 inch iMac  1.8 PPC  1.5 ram (gonna go pick up another gig today.  Nothing out of the ordinary.  I actually really like this thing.  Anyways, when I picked it up, it was supposed to have 10.5.8 on it and it only has 10.4.11  No real biggie just need to get a hold of a 10.5 disc.  Anyways, here is the issue.  Programs will not open.  If it is a preinstalled program, it runs fine.  If it is a program that I have downloaded, it will not run.  Case in point, I use FILEZILLA ALOT.  I downloaded the PPC version, go to open it, and the icon pops up in the dock, then closes with nothing else.  No crash report, no bug no nothing.  Pops up in the dock then disappears.  Does this with any program that I download.  I already repaired permissions to no avail..
