Why is my iMac running so slow?
iMac 24" 2007 4g dram OS X 10.(latest version)...
Running slow... Beach ball spins forever! Permissions fixed...
Is this a good question?
How full is the drive? Backup the drive with Time Machine to an external hard drive. Use your original system installation disk to startup from. Run Disk Utilities and re-format the drive using the "write zeros" option. This will take several hours to overnight. Now re-install the system and do a restoration from your Time Machine backup.
