Hello,

 

I updated my macbook to Mac OS X 10.6.8 (10K540) yesterday as prompted by the software update application.

And now my mac is very slow!? Safari/internet is super slow and loading other applications is also slower as before.

I checked the disc with
->"disk utility", ->"first Aid": I did run "Verify disk permissions" AND "repair". It said a lot .."Repaired".."permission differ..", see blow for details.
Then I restarted, went to disk utility and run "verify disk". Which stopped saying"... disk needs to be repaired..", see below for details.
So

Then I cleaned up the hard drive to get more space and tried to RESTORE from TIMEMACHINE from last week. But it seems I can not RESTORE the whole Macintosh HD, the RESTORE field is only functioning when I choose a folder as "system" etc.

 

HELP!
What do I need to do?
1. How do I get my status with time machine from last week, incl OS!?
OR
2. How do I do the below in detail? I dont have the disk anymore!? Any other options?
("Start up your computer with another disk (such as your Mac OS X installation disc), and then use Disk Utility to repair this disk.")
OR
3. Is there any other solution!? Update for the update!!??!!

 

Many thanks.

    The first thing you need to do is to repair the disk.  Nothing else you can do will be useful until that's done.  If you can't follow the instructions you showed, boot into "safe mode", which will do pretty much the same thing.  If your Mac shuts down during that process, then the problem is too severe for Disk Utility to repair.  Your options at that point would be to (a) try DiskWarrior (!US$100) or (b) reformat the disk, reinstall OS X, and restore from Time Machine.

     

    By the way, rather than insisting on reverting to an earlier version of OS X, it would be better to solve the slowness problem directly.  If you still have that problem after you fix the disk, check back for more advice.

    I just had the same problem, I've updated to 10.6.8 yesterday, and since then the browsing are very slow, no matter what broswer I am using, the upload download speed are still the same. But browsing just take forever, It takes for example google.com 30 seconds to load. I have Extream high speed internet connection, 3 other computers, and the only one is having this problem is the Mac after the update.

     

    Something in this update screwed my browsing capabitilties, I tried downloading Crome browser, same issue.

     

    I hope there is a way beside TimeMachine to revert the latest update. I don't want to reformat as I am sure as soon as I am going to do the update it will cause the same problem.

    Since the update, my system doesn't restart/shut down. I tried fixing permissions and resetting PRAM, no use. Apple broke my perfect little computer

    Okkkkk Now everything is working the way it should be,

    I tried downloading and installing the Combo, didn't work.

    I reinstalled Snow Leopard above the OS without reformating, and it did the trick, I retained all my applications and settings, and now my problem is resoved, and got my beloved Mac to the way it used to be, heck it feels like If I just baught it

    Current version is 10.6.4, I will sleep for now on the updates

    I'm glad you were able to fix your problem.  In the future if you need help, try to avoid describing the result of an action as "didn't work".  The person trying to help you will need to know in what way it didn't work.
