Hey guys, Alex here. I've been using Mac OS Lion since release date, and things have been running fine until the last few weeks. I've noticed a lot of pinwheels of death, crashing, and a ton of completely unresponsiveness. To fix any of my issues, most of the time, I have to force shut down my machine by holding the power button on my machine (when Finder becomes unresponsive, and won't relaunch) and turn it back on, or I have to open Terminal and type 'sudo reboot' because Finder WILL NOT WORK. Finder crashes ALL THE TIME. iTunes crashes ALL THE TIME. Pinwheels ALL THE TIME. A few minutes ago, I sat down at my machine, and tried to type in my iChat window, but I could not make iChat the active window, or input text into the IM box. So I went to the Force Quit option at the Apple Menu, and once Force Quit window opened, it was blank. It showed NO applications running. Then I clicked the Finder to see if this was a simple error/glitch, and Finder was unresponsive. No apps would respond to anything except Google Chrome (wtf right?). I had to Force Shutdown with the power button, and turn my machine back on to do this. What the hell is wrong!? Please don't say, your machine's specs aren't good enough, that's why you're having issues. I have a 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo with 8GB RAM and a SSD. There's not much better out there (for this particular machine). I've attached screenshots of my machine's Activity Monitor, is anything wrong/suspicious? Please help. This is very frustrating.
