Have you tried a "safe boot" (hold down shift key at startup) to see if it runs better after booting that way?

Another thing to try:
Go to the users & groups pref pane
Click the lock at the bottom and enter your password
Click the "+" in the bottom left and create a NEW ACCOUNT.
MAKE SURE you give it administrative privileges.
DON'T move anything into this account, "keep it simple".

Now... log out of the account that is giving you problems, and log into the new account.
Does the overall performance suddenly improve?

IF the answer is "yes", then SOMETHING in your account (and NOT in the general Mac OS files) is the source of the slowdown.

Having said that, "tracking it down" can be a long, tiring job.

So, I started up in safe mode.....and the kernel problem persisted. I cleaned up nearly 10% of the HD and turned off some of the background apps too.

Any thoughts on what the issue might be if it also happened when I was in safe mode? What things might I look into?

Also, how might I find the corrupted /etc/hosts file that seems? I don't know what to look for exactly


(Thanks so much for the advice. Truly. I'd be screwed right now without this!)

I dig it. I am wondering if maybe I need to just reinstall OS and then go from there....Thanks for the help!

Wouldn't wiping my hard drive clean with a fresh install fix some this problem or at least let me get rid of some stuff that has accumulated over time?
