    My iMac just crashed. All apps except finder gave me the beach ball, and force quit wouldn't load.

    I cold-booted it and it is now stuck on the screen showing the apple logo and the pin wheel, except the pin-wheel doesn't spin!

    HELP, My dad is asleep now and I don't want to wake him :s

    Try booting from the system DVD and repairing permissions.

    I tried booting it into safe mode. Took ages, but worked. Then restarted and it works now!
