I recently bought a new Mac Book Pro. Almost within weeks it encountered difficulty. Every time I reboot, withing about a day I am in beach ball hell and over days it constantly progresses until I get to a point where I just want to toss the computer out the window... then I reboot again and cycle start over. I am pretty much convinced that it is not a hardware problem. At least the disk utility tells me that my computer is fine. Mind you, can I trust the utility? Anyway, the bottom line is that is seems to be a software problem. My question is, are there proceedures or software out there that does a diagnosis on the computer to tell which is the offending software?
