Hi, I know that is a really vague title, but basically for a few days I've been plagued by spinning wheel of death when trying to accomplish any task. For instance: from a fresh restart, with no programs open, I'm seeing the wheel spin for about 4 minutes when trying to open a folder. If I open the activity monitor CPU shows about 95% idle. Memory shows: Physical Memory - 4,00 GB Memory Used - 3,68 GB Virtual Memory - 4,00 GB Swap Used - 0 bytes kernal_task is the top task, using 506,9 MB Basically I'm at a loss as to what is causing this. I'm wondering if anyone has any tips on how to start troubleshooting this, or if I should just try a fresh OS install? Any help is much appreciated, Cheers.
