Im new to Apple.  My 2012 15" Macbook Pro (updated to Lion, and assume I have the most recent updated version) is running excruciatingly slow.  Takes forever to start-up, and to wake up from sleep.  It acts as if it is running a billion tasks at once.


I updated to Lion with backing up (I know, I know, I screwed up).  I then created another Admin profile, which runs MUCH better.


I have run "verify disc" and "repair disc" numerous times and have not seen any improvement.


I want to erase the drive and reload the system.  In PC parlance, I want to reformat.


Please advise the best course of action.


Much appreciated!
