    Suddenly my Mac is running very intermittently slow. It was running fine in the morning before I left for work, When I came home every function is very laggy. I'll try to do something as simple as switching tabs or screens or open finder or whatever. I'll get the SBBoD for a few minutes and then it will run at normal speed for a short time and then get hung up on something again. It's not a internet thing because this is system wide. I tried rebooting, no help. I ran a utility maintenance program (Onyx) also no help. I cannot think of anything unusual I have done recently to cause this and my temperature is well within normal range. Please help with ideas to resolve or diagnose this. At least a starting point or whatever more info I need to provide for assistance. Thank you.

    Hello. Have you checked Activity Monitor? Going through Activity Monitor might give you an idea of what could be causing this issue.

    I have looked in the activity monitor. There is nothing there I can see running to slow down or consume resources.

    EtreCheck might help, install it, then test your Mac with it and it will give you report on installed extensions etc. Potential problems are coloured red.

    Lots of errors reported on your disk drive.

    Try "Verify" or "Repair" in Disk Utility.

    ^^ What he said. Try a command-r boot to recovery and from there do a repair disk. I sounds like you may have a failing drive there.

    Also, get rid of CleanMyMac and Intego. Any kext/driver there that says failed should either be updated or deleted.
