    I just bought a Mac Book Pro 2 weeks ago and at least once or twice a day Messenger, Safari, or FaceTime freeze. I then have to force close the application but they will not open or run again unless I restart the laptop. Anyone else having this issue and if so any solutions? TIA

    Did this happen from the beginning?

    Have you installed any software that could slow down your Mac like an Anti Virus/Malware program that's running in the background?


    What kind of MBP is it? Does it have an SSD or PCIe flash storage? Or an old model with HDD?
    How much RAM and the OS X version would also be good to know.

    Please download and run this:

    and post the protocol in code tags:

    Go to Applications/Utilities. There should be an uninstaller for Avira. You really don't need that on a Mac. It's doing nothing else than slowing down everything.


    That's the best and fastest currently available MBP. I shouldn't be slow at anything. I hope it's just Avira what is causing that. I stopped reading the protocol when I saw all those entries, but I'll look if I find anything else.

    It was doing it before Avira. And it's only Safari, FaceTime, and Messenger. If Safari stops working I can use chrome no problem.

    But everything should work fine on such a fast machine. Did you own a Mac before and migrated everything from it?

    I don't know where this comes from:

    Adware: ⓘ
        Adware infection possible. [Scan for adware]
    I saw you disabled the Gatekeeper. That's not a good option. Everything can be installed and launched on your Mac without your permission.

    You should scan for Adware/Malware, looks like you have Malwarebytes already installed.

    Yea I have a iMac 27" 2013. Never had this issue. I will turn back on gatekeeper and run malwarebyte and let you know the results.

    An NVRAM and SMC reset might also be helpful, or Apple Diagnostics.

    Or Disk Aid with the Disk Utility on your recovery partition.

    I would also try if those problems occur in another user account too. If not, then a clean install of OS X might be the best solution.

    You could copy just the things you need out of your Time Machine backup folder, without using the Migration Assistant. There might be sometimes problems with permissions if you do that. Maybe some expert here knows what you have to consider before doing that.

    Turn on Gate Keeper and ran Malwarebytes and it did not detect anything. Ran Etrecheck again and it said the same thing about Adware infection possible. [Scan for adware]

    Did you try if a new user account has the same problems?

    Maybe there is something wrong with the permissions when you transferred everything from the iMac.

    I would try to boot into Recovery cmd+r and run Disk Utility there. Then select First Aid for the drive and after that for the Volume "Macintosh HD". It seems to be encrypted. You have to unlock it in the File-Menu before with your admin user password.

    Also reset the NVRAM:

    And the SMC:

    If nothing helped run Apple Diagnostics:

    If it does not find any problem, I would do a clean install or take it to an Apple Store or call them. It's the newest model and should work fine, they'll help you or repair/exchange it for free, even if you bought it elsewhere or used. The standard Apple warranty is one year and worldwide.


    Here you can check the Service and Support Coverage:

    Or login to your Support Profile, there you can add it if it's not listed yet:
