    Hi all,

    I have a Macbook Pro running the latest OSX (10.8.2 I believe). All was running fine but now I can't start Calendar anymore.

    When I try to run it. It loads up, I can see the calender but within seconds I get the beach ball and it never comes back. Activity monitor says "not responding". I've tried force quit and relaunch, I also killed the CalendarAgent which seems to only be possible by a kill -9 in the terminal. Also rebooted the machine but same problem. Anyone know how to resolve these kinds of issues? I think there's maybe a cache or some data directory that I can clear although I don't remember where to find that.

    Thanks for any help with this.

    Matt

    Try trashing the plist file. It should be ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.iCal.plist

    Got rid of the plist file but no good. Still does the same thing. Just I'm on week view instead of month view when it freezes. I think I may need to delete the data, do you know where it's stored? I have it synced with my phone so it's not a big deal if I have to clear it from here.

    I don't think I'll be taking it to the Apple store just yet. That may be a last resort but it's not that critical.
