I have a 24" 2.4 ghz iMac that I bought a little more than a year ago. Up to now it has always been fast from folder to folder, fast on Safari, and fast when I'm gaming. Suddenly yesterday it all turned to muck. I can't even move from folder to folder on my computer without getting the spinning beach ball icon for at least 30 seconds. My computer keeps freezing as do many of my unrelated applications. I ran a System Scripts test with Cocktail and it didn't help at all, I'm just so confused right now. I'm having to manually shut down my computer multiple times a day, sometimes I'll even get the folder with a question mark on it at startup and have to wait a few hours before trying to boot again. This is reminding me of my PC days, something I am not eager to look back on. Anyone got any advice on this one?
