That was some amazing information on your issue.....

Have you been downloading a lot of things recently to "gunk" up your system?

I would really need a lot more information on your problem to actually help you.

It's most likely because you have been downloading a lot of stuff that can slow down your system. Do you get the spinning beach ball thing a lot? That is a sign of the computer being unresponsive.

Check your Activity Monitor and make sure you don't have a lot of applications eating up your RAM.
