Nice to meet you, *****!
Is it a macOS computer that says so?

Okay, let's go one step at a time. Any of them may help you.

  1. Restart your Mac

This is the first thing you should try. Restarting your Mac clears the cache and other temporary files and gives back disk space used as virtual memory. Go to the Apple menu and click Restart.
