Finder windows sluggish, Mail sluggish, tab browing in Safari sluggish, Word 2011 very sluggish, all since upgrading to Lion and the recent 10.7.1 upgrade changed nothing.  Any ideas?

    Yes. Something is wrong with your computer.

    I'm pretty certain there's nothing wrong with the computer. It's probably software related and has something to do with either some old software or preferences that transferred during the upgrade. But how to identify that is my problem.  I use many 3rd party programs upon startup such as iKey, Launchbar, Butler, Cloud, WindowMover, Msg Filer, etc.  I suspect it's one of these or some .plist file.

    My suggestion would be to start in safe mode and see what happens.

     

    Starting in safe mode will prevent all third party appilcations from starting. If there is any improbement in preformance that indicates the problem is with one of them.
