    Hi All,

    Had my new 2012 iMac since February and it's been absolutely perfect up until a few days ago.
    Lately it's been a bit slow to boot and operate, more specifically with iTunes.

    Is there anything I can do to speed it up again?

    Also, I have got Windows installed on the partitioned HDD as well.

    Thanks in advance.

    I would download OnyX. Should clean up your iMac and get it running hopefully faster for ya.

    It's hard to give you advice without taking a look at the machine, but I think I would contact Apple. You should not need to put Onyx on a machine that near, regardless of how much you've been using it. OS X is not Windows - it shouldn't be rotting this soon, so there may be some other sort of problem going on.

    Try turning it off, unplugging it for a few minutes. This resets the SMC or something. Then try it.
