Ok fair point...does anyone have any suggestions as to how to solve the ML issues, almost all application at some point get the wheel of death, forcing me to have to restart the computer. I don't need someone advising me to go and look at a website dealing with issues from 2011 when ML hadn'r been issued. I never encountered a single issue with Lion or it's predecessors.
How much RAM do you have?
How much free disk space do you have?
Any other symptoms?
What model/year computer do you have?
What third party apps are you running?
What anti-virus app are you running if any?
Have you tried starting in Safe Mode and see if the problems still occur?
Restart holding the "shift" key.
(Expect it to take longer to start this way because it runs a directory check first.)
If this works look in System Preferences > Users & Groups > Login items and delete any third party login items (-), you can always add them back with the (+). Also look in /Library/Startup Items. Nothing is put in that folder by default, so anything in there is yours.
