    Guys, I have searched through but can seem to find the same problem posted here. Hope someone can help.

    Situation is this,

    10.6.2 Installed
    4GB RAM
    2 Users and one guest active

    Ok My profile has no problems, However log into my wifes account and she gets a spinning Beachball when she does things like edit photo's, Scroll through folders, scroll through E-Mails etc. Most things. This spinning beachball goes away whenever she rolls the cursor over the dock. Immediately and everytime.

    So system hangs, Scroll over dock magnify on dock kicks in and system runs again....

    Log back into my profile and no problems at all.

    Done permission repairs etc.

    Any help on this would be appreciated


    Brownie! :)
