    The rest of my system is really fast - but deleting the trash is taking ages with a spinning beachball.

    I checked for the DivX issue - no resolve (no folder - just a DivX folder).

    The rest of the system is lightning fast, but the trash is really slow, as is screen capture (takes ~10seconds for it to appear on desktop - yesterday took 0.5 seconds).

    Any advice?

    Anyone? This is doing my head in. iChat hangs too. I repaired permissions, but to no avail. I have no idea why it's hanging. ArGH!

    Tried restarting?

    Open up Activity Monitor when you delete the trash - see how much CPU usage/memory usage it takes up.

    Nothing. My iBook G3 is faster than the finder of my Mac Mini and I don't know why. This is annoying me as it's my main work machine. I don't know what's wrong with it...

    Sending things to the trash takes ages and requires a spinning beachball.
