I have a 2008 A1181 Macbook running Snow Leopard and it's not happy, it was until a month of so ago when an update from Apple came down the wire and screwed it up and screwed it up in that where it used to take about two minutes to start up in now takes nigh on five minutes - immediatey after the update it took ten minutes to start, where who knows what else is wrong as in disgust I switched to using Linux, but now I need the Mac again so have to address the issue.
( Edited to add ; there is another problem I almost immediately noticed after the update, power consumption is increased meaning the battery drains a lot faster which is equally annoying )
Oh and I did verify the disk and repair permissions after than ten minute start.
Now it is I was informed by another there had been complaints about a certain recent update from Apple and and a patch had been created and true enough I have had notifications of further Apple software to install but I haven't installed through a certain distrust given the software states it's compatible with a later version of os x.
Does anyone know anything about this and how I can get my Macbook back to how it was or at least better than it is now?
