    Please help (I'll be quick):
    • recently significant beachballs
    • safari and firefox
    • force quit only option to remedy
    • restart computer works but after several minutes problem persists
    • I'm not sure how to run activity monitor, have set it to show all processes and update very frequently, but nothing ever shows up on the processes window.
    • ran disk utility a few times, doesn't help. verify disk: everything looks fine, repair permissions returns "Warning: SUID file "System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app/Contents/Resources/OwnerGroupTool" has been modified and will not be repaired.
      " but doesn't fix them, as these errors appear again next time I repair permissions. (actually, this time when I ran disk utility to get a copy of the error messages, only one error appeared. previously, I received 3 errors. )
    • I have noticed something weird, in that the hard drive mount point is not mounted to a specific point any longer. I don't know what the default was, but the mount point in disk utility is simply "/" and the mount button is greyed out. computer is just more than a year old, no apple care. last years 15" tricked out MBP.

    Anyone have any suggestions please?

    thanks.

    Here are all the errors that wont be fixed when doing repair permissions:

    Warning: SUID file "System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app/Contents/Resources/OwnerGroupTool" has been modified and will not be repaired.

    Group differs on "private/etc/cups", should be 0, group is 26.

    Permissions differ on "private/var/spool/cups/cache/rss", should be drwxr-xr-x , they are drwxrwxr-x .


    How might I rectify this? it's all greek to me. Thanks!
