    My imac is running painfully slow! Time capsule will not back up and hasn't since yesterday and just keep seeing the spinning wheel? Any help what to do?

    Take a look at Activity Monitor. Are there any processes hung or using a large amount of CPU?

    You don't have a virus.

    Give the old "reboot all" a try. Power cycle the computer and time capsule. 99 out of 100 issues I would experience with my TC was fixed by a powercycle.
