    Hi all,
    Hope you are all well.

    This morning I try logging into my account and it is taking forever over 15 minutes.

    I did the disk repair and permission repair but still taking over 15 minutes and I am still not being able to log in.

    I had installed some new fonts yesterday and wonder that might have caused a problem?

    Please could someone out there let me know how I can resolve this?

    Many thanks

    How many fonts?

    Did you validate them via Font Book, or just dump them into the library?

    Try this...
    -launch Font Book, go to its prefs, and uncheck the box labeled "Automatic font activation"

    -do a Safe Boot (restart w/shift key down) to clear font cache/database

    -restart again (normal boot)

    If you didn't validate those new fonts before, then do it now. If any fail, toss 'em out.
