Today I imported a iCal file onto my iMac off of my iBook, well while i was working in iCal, my iMac slowed down, so i restarted it and when it starts up everything runs slow if i open something it will take atleast 2 minutes to open up and for it to run properly it would take more down time.

I have a feeling that one of those files is corrupt. If you're running 10.4.3, then go to Disk Utility>Your Disk>Verify Disk. If the disk verifies OK then repair permissions.

This has the method, even though it says for a single app.

i can't get that far without it freezing upYou can't run Disk First Aid in Disk Utilities off the boot drive.

Must be run off the DVD -- since it won't fix drives with open files, and OS X is a lot of open files when running.

Alternatively holding Command-S during boot and following the directions on the screen for 'fsck' is another method of repairing the drive. Type 'reboot' to restart the machine.

Neither of these is a one pass fix, keep running it until there are no errors, or the same ones keep popping up and aren't fixed.

----

Update Permission in Disk Utilities must be run off the HD, since it requires the packages on the HD. Running it off the DVD makes use of the wrong files.
