I realize that other people are posting about this very problem in these forums, but I am having trouble following the jargon when folks give advice, so I'm starting my own thread here.


I am running a 15 inch MacBook Pro and I just installed Mavericks over the weekend. Now everything seems to have a lag time of a few seconds and some programs are taking ages to start up. I'd really love to figure out how to get this to stop. I don't know if it is possible to go back to my old operating system now, either. It would be great to fix this and get it to work if possible. Does anyone have any ideas for me?


Here's some info on my computer:


2.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Processor

8 GB 1067 MHz DDR3 Memory



MacBook Pro 15 inch
