Please help! All of a sudden, my Macbook Pro has slowed to a death crawl.  I downloaded and installed OS X 10.8.3 but it was running pefectly fine for about 3 weeks.  But after I downloaded and tried to install the latest safari update (my computer ran out of bettery and shut down before I could finish installing) my computer has slowed down to an excrutiating pace.  It starts up very very slow and I constantly get the spinning beach ball, even to close an application or type.  I tried starting in safe mode, clearing my cache, running system repair, checking my RAM and CPU usage, and even tried re-installing.  Might it be Mountain Lion? I also was trying to download a movie from a sketchy website at the time my computer took a **** on me, might it be that? Anyways, please help because I am hundreds of miles away from civilization and the nearest Apple Store. Thanks in advance!

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3)
