Any help appreciated. Here's is my issue. In the last couple weeks my 8 month old MBP has been freezing up. The entire interface stops working except for the mouse, and nothing responds, not even force quit, and i get the spinning beach ball indefinitely. It's been such an issue that I've tried to narrow down what application is causing it, and it turns out to be itunes. Upon loading it, about 2 thirds of the time (i have no idea why it is not consistent, sometimes if I wait and open some other apps, do some work, and then open itunes, it is not a problem) everything freezes up after the itunes screen opens and i get the spinning ball of death. The other third of the time, everything will be going great, I'll be working on the internet, listening to some tunes, and I'll attempt to change the song or look for a different artist in the search bar and everything will crash. Any ideas on how to pinpoint the problem? Or perhaps what the problem is? I really have no idea what cause the issue. I haven't been doing anything different; the problem first started after I downloaded some music (yes... torrents... so I recognize this may be self inflicted but let's not get into what a horrible person I am etc... please...) and was trying to convert them from flac. I have since deleted the files but figured it was mostly likely not a virus since i have, well, a mac. Am I being naive in this assumption? I have already repaired everything I could in disk utility. I have a 2.4 15inch MBP with 4 gigs of ram and 10.6.2 installed in case it is relevant. And the latest version of itunes.
