    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.

    I also tried to create a new user, as someone suggested it, but it didn't work :(

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

    Try a permissions repair and a PRAM re set from disk utility. Step by step

    And permissions repair

    If these fail to correct your issue, a backup and re install as suggested may help.

    This definitely.

    Also have you attempted to repair the disc and also repair permissions?

    I would also suggest upgrading to an SSD as you wouldn't regret the speed difference then.

    Aight I will try PRAM reset and permissions repair, if that doesn't work, I guess I only have the reinstalling option left, thx for help.
