    Sometimes when I click on the wifi icon in the menubar it starts beachballing and then all the system icons on the right size freeze and give me a beachball too. Other icons from apps I have installed are fine and so are the buttons on the left. No way to fix it other than logging out/rebooting. Killing the menubar in Terminal fixes it until I go click the wifi icon again.

    This is happening on my rMB on 10.10.3 and is kind of random.

    Try pressing Command - Shift - G and paste "~/Library/Preferences/". If it says file doesn't exist then just paste "~/Library/Preferences/" and find the file manually. Drag it to the trash, empty it and reboot your computer. Should be working from that point. Let me know if it doesn't work. Cheers Mekul
