Try doing some basic maintenance.
For the spinning beach balls and unresponsive programs, if the above doesn't solve the problem:
Try setting up another admin user account to see if the same problem continues. If Back-to-My Mac is selected in System Preferences, the Guest account will not work.
If the problem is still there, try booting into the Safe Mode. Shut down the computer and then power it back up. Immediately after hearing the startup chime, hold down the shift key and continue to hold it until the grey Apple icon and a progress bar appear. The boot up is significantly slower than normal.

Thanks Eric. I have tried all of the above, and still experience the same issues. This only began to happen upon the upgrade to 10.8.2. Prior to that, the system waa stable.

If you haven't installed the 10.8.2 supplemental update, maybe that might help. There are 2 and since I don't know the age of your computer, I'll post both:
You can try re-installing Mountain Lion by booting into the Recovery Partition (command - R). Ugly, but has solved a lot of problems.

Is your hard drive going bad? I've never, in all my years, heard of an OS causing "random device driver corruptions."

Once again, thanks for the thoughts. I certainly would try to avoid a re-install if I can. My setup is in a studio and would be hard pressed to suffer the downtime. Last resort for sure.
As for the age of the computer, it is brand new. About a month old. I have done the 10.8.2 update...however, I will try the supplemental.

I certainly would never say it is not possible, but highly unlikely. The Mac Pro is a month old and has a brand new OWC SSD.
Thanks for the help,

I downloaded the Supplimental Update for 2012 Machines 10.8.2, however it says that it is not compatable with this system. Odd, as my computer is a Mid 2012 model. Never a dull moment.
That said, the other patch installed fine. Odd but treu. Maybe that will do it. Time will tell.
