Recently, my computer has been working really slow, at a glacier rate, it reminds me when I used to have a PC. It works fine for a while but eventually everything will freeze and mess around. I can't even open Force Quit to close the applications that are not responding, everything takes ages to close, sometimes I have to shut it down manually. I just formatted the Hard Drive and reinstalled Snow Leopard, it worked fine for a while but it started working slow again. Spotlight keeps indexing, it will never finish, even after the reinstallation of Snow Leopard. The only thing that comes to my mind is that this is a problem with the hard drive, but I can't tell for sure.


I runned again the Snow Leopard Installer to verify the Hard Disk and repair the permissions. Disk Utility said the Hard Drive was perfectly fine, but it repaired a lot of permissions. So, hopefully this will work.


Macbook 13" (2010)

Hard drive: 250 GB

Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.26 GHz

4 GB of RAM


Thanks for your help,

it's greatly appreciated!
