    I just took the EFI Firmware Update and now:

    1) The computer takes twice as long to boot up!
    2) It's extremely slow/laggy in opening any website and software [ outlook ]
    3) I keep getting the rainbow colored wheel [ sorry first Mac so not sure what it's called :eek: ]

    Now I'm wondering why did I update at all :(

    Any way to undo/roll back or fix this ??

    Please post!

    Fixing Permissions resolved the lag issue

    I did.. twice!

    Also reset the NVRAM [ command + option + P + R ]

    Now, verifying permissions [ disk utility ] ...

    Apple/Mac you got to love them?
    They Just Work???????????

    I'm not doing any updates. Did the 10.7.3 the first day it cam out. Luckily for me, as I use Windows also, I made a full backup just before I did that update. 2 days later I was going back to 10.7.2 and I'm staying there.

    I Never do Windows updates, at least not regularly, and I'm not doing Mac updates either. Not until I see one and don't read about all the bad stuff that happens.

    Good luck.
