Hi,

 

FYI, I've removed my WiFi/Bluetooth Card (in order to have a digital tool indefinitely, as crazy as this may seem). I've also removed the Remote Manager. Now, I am struggling with memory usage, that which runs on pre-installed scripts(?). I'd like your help to find, remove or alter these scripts so that the computer can 'rest'. For example, I want to disable the 'AppleCam' scripts, 'AppleEventsd' scripts, 'AirPlay.driver', 'ShareKits' if possible, and so forth. Do I delete frameworks, plugins, extensions, and keychains; and alter 'launchd','sshd_config', 'ssh_config' files or what? I'm at a loss here and my MBA is running at half speed, so it seems (based on 'MenuMeters' app results).

 

The following (short list of) 'Console' reading occurs repeatedly:

 

[BEGIN]

[END]

 

I've used the app 'Onyx' to restore as many defaults as possible, cleared caches, and repaired permissions endlessly. I have also 'clean-installed' Mavericks several times as an initial blank canvas. (Incidentally, there was an additional Volume for 'MobileBackups' that I found with the command 'ls -l /Volumes' and susequently disabled.)

 

I hope this wasn't too much to read. I hope you can provide some information. And I sincerely thank you in advance for any assistance with this matter.

you might want to add this post to the maleware listing.  What you are asking for help with might not be malware but you will get a better response and and help.

 

good luck
