    Hey guys.. My MBP is becoming really slow when I turn it on. After the desktop shows, it takes my MBP 1 minute to load the battery and audio icons at the menubar, at in the meantime I cannot use my MBP. Also when loading Safari, it takes way longer than it used to. I always keep my MBP clean, and everything is updated, so not sure why this is happening.

    If anyone has any ideas, let me know please. Thanks.

    Does the problem still exist if you create a new user account and temporarily use that one?
