I previously Posted this: I restarted my computer after experiencing some slowing while using FCP. After I restarted, when the desktop loaded again, it only loaded the spotlight bar in the top right corner, and nothing else. The pin wheel comes up when spot light is moused over. I tried doing a safeboot several times, the computer starts up fine then, but then the problem continues when returning to a normal start up. I also tried upgrading to 10.4.7 while in safeboot but it still continues. Any Ideas would be Awesome, Thanks! So I Did another safe boot, and now wierd files appeared in the trash, with extensions like: .db, and .aux. any ideas would be great. Thanks!
