    Greetings,

    I have a Macbook Pro from 2006. 2.16 Dual Core 32bit 2 gb of ram and upgraded 7200 hard drive running Snow Leopard 10.6.4 and I am getting a random OS spinning wheel hang while doing normal non intensive use. I am not possitive, but it seems to have been caused by the last OS update. Well, I at least don't remember it happening before this. I have tried resetting my pram and repairing my permissions but it has not helped. It does not seem to be program related but rather system. For instance, I will get the spinning wheel for no reason at all at the finder but if I click into the window of lets say Word it does not spin but I click back to finder and it continues to spin until it is done doing whatever it is doing.

    Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated.

    Check your HDD, must be the problem...

    Checked the disk, no errors. The disk is not brand new and has been 100% reliable to this point. Again, problem did not arise until the latest Snow Leopard update.

    Maybe the next update will fix it.
