    No use checking one thing at a time, its all of it, all the time. Its just a dog, shoulda been called "Cougar". I have used OS since the early 90's, this is the worst yet. *** are you guys doing, "Jobsie" woulda got it right, fix this crap.

     

    You can reinstall forever, its the OS not ready for prime time, i think Bill Gates' investment musta reached maturity (Hence the "Cougar" thingie).

     

    Tired of:

     

    Finder (Not responding) - that is when its sorry as kinda finds itself!

    Photoshop (Not responding)

    InDesign (Not responding)

    Illustrator (Not responding)

    Acrobat (Not responding)

    Safari (Not responding)

    Bridge (Not responding)

    iTunes (Not responding)

    iPhoto (Not responding)

    Word (Not responding)

    Entoruage (Not responding)

    Dreamweaver (Not responding)

     

    I have screen shots of all these (Not responding) at the same time.

     

    And, well... Mac tech support (Not responding)!!!!

    Finder (Not responding) - that is when its sorry as kinda finds itself!

    Safari (Not responding)

    iTunes (Not responding)

    iPhoto (Not responding)

    Word (Not responding)

    I don't have these installed:

    Perhaps it's Adobe.

    Start your own thread. Your problems have nothing to do with the op's and will only cause confusion here. If I were you (luckily I am not) I would do a complete reinstall and then come back here and open a new post to troubleshoot if it doesn't help.

    Why would you want to own a non-functioning computer? Take it to your local Apple Store and let them deal with it.

     

    Cheers

    Pete, this mac has functioned relentlessly for over 12 months. The only thing that changed was Mountian Lion!

     

    And it still functions, not like it used to, why the change in work ethic for the OS. Its frustrating to go backwards in productivity. This is not the future, i hope! It will take some getting used to, not what i expected at all.

     

    Google the dissatisfied Mountain Lion power users.

    Then shouldn't everyone be having problems? And not just the tiny percentage of users who come to these sites?

    Pete, the metrics and number of problems associated with 10.8 are much higher than other OS releases for a long time.

    Links and figures, please.

     

    Thanks

    In fact here are the mumbers and does not count any developer requests or bug reports as those are under NDA.

    10.68/28/0944.00100327442280.159091

    Looks Ok to me for an 8 month old release, considering the adjustment time at the implementation of any OSX in the past. You will also notice how the majority ofsupport requests occur in the early stages of release. Now look at how many times ML has been downloaded compared to any other OSX.

    Do what I did. I downloaded as much stuff as I could including my mail files, Photos, time machine backups and anything else I could think of. I then setup an appt. with the genuis bar at my Apple store and they reinstalled Snow Leopard for me gettting rid of mountain lion once and for all from my computer.  I could have done this myself but they were able to do it for me in alot  less time and without taking time away from other people at the genuis bar.

    THe only problem I have is some of the stuff I saved from mountain lion will not open in Snow Leopard. Anything you save from mountain lion try and save it in a format that Snow Leopard will open.

    I hope this helps.

    Macs from the last two years do not support Snow Leopard. And why would I want to do that? I have five Macs all flying along super under ML! Like many many millions of other users. Try fixing your issues.

     

    Hope this helps

    Concidering he didn't say how old his computer was what I said would work. Just because you think you know it all you do not. the last comment of try fixing your issues is stupid as I have fixed my issue and it had nothing to do with YOU. You sound like you enjoy being condesiding to people you talk to. I was not even expecting you to say anythig to me. Of course this is why I do not come on here and try to ask questions due to everyone I had dealt with on here are like you and like talkong down to people. There is no need for you to reply to this but I know you will because that is what you do.
