For some reason, starting last night, I am getting beachballs like crazy. At random times, I get a beachball in Finder, I get a beachball every time I click "open" in Photoshop, and I get a beachball whenever I open activity monitor. They last until I force restart my computer and whenever I do command+option+escape to force quit, these programs never quit so I am literally forced to restart. I have never experienced beachballs in OS X before and I cannot figure out what is causing it now. The only thing I have done recently that would change my system at all was installing the new iCal update, but besides that, nothing else is different. I am running OS 10.3.2, any ideas? I did a permissions repair but there was nothing wrong and I am not sure what else it could be.
