    Hi Guys

    My macbook was freezing up a lot and i couldn't get past the desktop or open anything so I decided to do a fresh install from my original leopard discs.

    after this it booted fine and all original software opens and works ie safari, quicktime etc....

    although now when I install any new program and then try to open it I am hit with an endless beachball loader....

    the overall computer seems to run quite slugish as well..

    also did a disk verify and it says all is ok

    any help appreciated

    Sounds like your hard drive may be going bad, the sluggishness and beachballs are a pretty classic symptom
