My mother's iMac is sick. The problem is, I am in California and she is in Texas. I will try and provide as much information that I gathered from her and maybe someone can help me out. Upon booting up the iMac, it is fine for the first 10 minutes or so. After that, programs start to become very slow, to the point where checking her mac mail is impossible. She said when she tries to do anything, she will get the Color Wheel for minutes before it finally resolves it self. I know its not alot of detail but thats about the most I could get from her on the phone. The iMac is from about 2003 and has started having this problem in the last months. Thanks a million!
