I use a Mac and recently trashed my entire system by accident. After reinstalling everything, I could not remember the names and locations of several useful items I had downloaded from the internet. What should I do? Name and address supplied

I was using Apple's Disk Utility when I received this message: 'Group differs on 'private/etc/cups', should be 0, group is 26.' What does that mean?

I want to get rid of the Symantec anti-virus software on my Mac because I think it slows the machine down. Will removing it put my computer at risk?

When I installed Windows on my MacBook Pro, I allocated a 20-gigabyte partition. It turns out 5GB would have been enough. The Mac drive, on the other hand, is almost full. Is there an easy way to reduce the Windows partition?

Not long ago, I came across some cool-looking 'themes' for the Mac OS X interface on the Web.

I tried to find the site again but I cannot remember anything except a reference to something Egyptian. Can you help? Will installing a theme, which is just a design, harm my computer?

I have a lot of old vinyl records.

Is there a way for me to move the music onto my Macintosh computer?

Ideally, I'd like to put it in iTunes.

Is this possible?

all systems go

Apple's Mac OS X version 10.5 - known as Leopard - accomplishes the two things one wants when upgrading to a new operating system: it adds a great deal of value and remains familiar.

Why must Macintosh users continue to use old technology, such as Microsoft's Office for Mac 2004? When will the new 2007 version of Office for Mac be released in Hong Kong?

Why are software products always so late? Can these companies never do anything on time?

I run a small Web development company and use Adobe Systems' Flash.

I am considering adopting Adobe Flex, a new cross-platform Web application framework, but recently read about the Linux-supporting Microsoft Silverlight. Is this a significant development?

I recently sold my Dell notebook computer and bought a Mac. I had lots of files on an external hard disk attached to the Dell. I have been able to connect the hard disk to my Mac, but I can only read files from it. I have about 20 gigabytes of free space but I can't write anything to it. Can you help?

My girlfriend has a Nokia 5300 Xpress Music mobile phone and she's having trouble getting her pictures from the handset to her Macintosh computer. On June 17, you talked about iSync, but I am not certain it will work on her machine - it's a bit old and has no built-in Bluetooth. Have you any ideas?

One to watch

Boasting a sleek look to match your flat-screen television, the Apple TV works like a wireless DVD player. All types of iTunes-programmed digital content - including videos, photos, music and podcasts - can be played on a high-definition television set, having first been beamed from a Windows-based personal computer or Macintosh into the Apple TV set-top box.

You must remember this

Every year my Macs come with faster memory and a lot more of it. Conversely, each year my own memory seems to get slower with less and less available for use. One may assume this is a result of ageing or a wild and crazy lifestyle, but I suspect it is more a result of doing too many things at once.
