Within the past few days my boot time has multiplied by approximately 5 times. During the one day change two things happened on my machine that are the likely culprit. One, I began using the already installed Office Mac 2011: Outlook which I believe is the problem, but I also installed a new Steam game "Left 4 Dead 2". What I'm looking for is ideas on how to fix the problem. I've tried verbos mode to see if something is causing a delay, but I'm still booting on my SSD and things are still quite fast. Last week it would make a half of a single turn on the Apple boot screen with the pinwheel. Following the changes, suddenly it spins 5 times... The fan also rev's very high when I'm finally to my desktop. Any comments, questions and help would be very appreciated. I've tried many things, I'm a computer tech, and if you need any command line information that would be help, let me know. Machine specs are in SIG Thanks!
