When I first start Safari, it takes FOREVER to load Google, my home page, then I type 2-3 letters in the search box and I get the whirly circle and it takes for ever again, then I type a few more letters and the same thing - It finally drops down the anticipated pages I may be looking for... Then throughout the use of Safari or Mail, it continues sporadically. Is this a problem with Mac 10.4.11 because I upgraded from 10.3.9 3 months ago and NEVER had a single issue - I just wanted to play with my new iPod and had to update my system... HELP! Could this be a sign of my Hard Drive going out? Are there some apps that I can run to tell what's up? I did a verify and repair permissions but to no help.
