    Hi, I have an imac bought it in 2007 so its a new one (excuse my ignorance)
    For about a week now its keeps displaying the loading circle every time i want to change web sites.
    I dont use the mac for much else except internet browsing and so cant really say if it does it for anything else.
    It has never done it before but it is getting more and more frequent and will often do it even if im not using the computer, for example I may be reading something and it happens.
    I recently read about freeing up space on the computer by zeroing files and followed instructions to go into utilities etc and half completed 7 zero's as I couldnt leave the computer on for the time it needed and so had to stop it.
    Could this be the problem?
    Also I did change my mouse from mighty mouse to an older version but have now changed it back again...can anyone help as its really worrying me as its not going away
    thanks Kate
