I haven't been able to look at this yet, but I have someone asking me for help with an iMac. Its a core2duo, upgraded from 2gb to 4. And from 320 to 500 on the had. It has a clean install of Snow Leopard. I bought this used for my dad, so I don't really know much about the machine. Anyway, he keeps telling me it is freezing up on him, usually(I think always), when using Safari. He gets the spinning beach ball, and I don't know how much time he gives it before he forces it to shut down by holding the power button. He has a very slow, crappy, wireless Internet provider. Is it possible Safari is just having issues because the pages are loading too slowly? I am hoping to look at it soon, but wanted some ideas on what to look for/at when I go over there.
