    Hey All,

    tbh I hardly ever use my iMac but when i do it just seems slow and sometimes unresponsive!

    I have the Late 2012 iMac 27' 3.4ghz, 8GM Ram, 3TB Fusion

    also start up and shutdown times aint the best!

    What could be causing this do you think?

    Thanks

    Try running Disk Doctor, download the free app Memory Clean and see how full your memory is, check to see which programs are running on your computer as you boot the computer.
    I have a feeling that you've got programs that are running in the background and eating ram.

    If none of this works then you may have a hardware issue.
