My MacBook was working fine this morning, It was not until I returned home after work that it started to have issues. It became unresponsive and I restarted it by holding the power button, ever since then Apps stop working very frequently and become unresponsive, sometimes to the point where every app does including finder and activity monitor and I have to restart the computer. I freed up some space since my hard drive was nearly full since I thought that might be it, I freed up about 35 gb's. That seemed to barely help. Then I downloaded iAntivirus to see if it was that but that didn't help much either. Then I tried to Verify the HD in Disk Utility and it said "The volume Macintosh HD was found corrupt and needs to be repaired. Error: This disk needs to be repaired. ...then use Disk Utility to repair this disk." Here are some specs of my Mac. System Version: Mac OS X 10.6.8 (10K549) Hardware Overview: Model Name: MacBook Model Identifier: MacBook6,1 Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo Processor Speed: 2.26 GHz Number Of Processors: 1 Total Number Of Cores: 2 L2 Cache: 3 MB Memory: 2 GB Bus Speed: 1.07 GHz Boot ROM Version: MB61.00C8.B00 Any help and or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
