    If I open TextEdit, it seems to work ok. But if I open an existing file (RTF), TextEdit opens but is "not responding" (says the Activity Monitor), for about 2 minutes. Then the file I wanted to open suddenly appears and works fine.

    How come? And how can I make TextEdit work normally again?

    Does this happen with all .rtf files or just one specific file? I use rtf with TextEdit a lot and never have an issue. Also how big is the file? What vesion of OSx?

    Sorry for my late respons, I somehow missed the notification...:eek:

    Anyway, I did some more "research" and this is what I got:

    I've almost given up and I'm thinking about reinstalling OSX manually and copy my personal files manually afterwards, just like the old Windows times.:rolleyes:
