I'm concerned that over the past few months I get on my MacBook and hit a browser and wait several minutes, yes minutes for it to load. Also selecting various routine sites I get the beachball and never the site. I reload the browser, no improvement. I restart the machine, then I am able to view. I know how to see certain things in the Activity Monitor but not sure where I could or if I could detect anything out of the norm. Does anyone have any suggestions of what I might try? I don't want to do an internet search as everyone and their mother want to sell you an app that fix your problems but not even make coffee. :) Any advice is welcome and thanks.
