    Did you bother to do a clean install on another drive and leave Lion or earlier on its own (so you can dual boot, test ML, etc) and also so you aren't 'carrying over' drivers, extensions, plugins and such, from old OS? upgrade in place is so common but has side effects whereas using clean install you still use Setup Assistant.


    VMware, Kensington, anything and everything 3rd party?


    Safe Mode? Good to do once anyway and always good after a freeze, panic, hard restarts.

  • icethepenguin Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I did a clean install on the same SSD after erase, then used the assitant to move over old stuff from Time Machine.  I use fusion all day long, Kensington Mouse, Gear Head USB hub, external HDD, iogear media card reader, Dell Printer 1600n, Neat Recipt scanner, Brother label maker, ext DVD burner, 3 monitors. 


    I haven't run safe mode yet, but I did clear the PRAM.

    Any or all of the following third-party system modifications may be contributing to your problem:






    I suggest you uninstall all of them according to the developers' instructions, reboot, and see whether there's any improvement. If there is, you can experiment with putting them back, one at a time, to identify which one is at fault. You should never reinstall the worthless "VirusBarrier" product.

  • icethepenguin Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Is VirusBarrier really that bad?  I haven't had any problems with it and it finds stuff.


    I'll try your suggestions.

    OS X versions 10.6.7 and later have built-in detection of known Mac malware in downloaded files. The recognition database is automatically updated once a day; however, you shouldn't rely on it, because the attackers are always at least a day ahead of the defenders. In most cases, there’s no benefit from any other automated protection against malware.


    The most effective defense against malware is your own intelligence. All known malware on the Internet that affects a fully-updated installation of OS X 10.6 or later takes the form of trojans, which can only work if the victim is duped into running them. If you're smarter than the malware attacker thinks you are, you won't be duped. That means, primarily, that you never install software from an untrustworthy source. How do you know a source is untrustworthy?


    1. Any website that prompts you to install a “codec,” “plug-in,” or “certificate” that comes from that same site, or an unknown site, merely in order to use the site, is untrustworthy.
    2. A web operator who tells you that you have a “virus,” or that anything else is wrong with your computer, or that you have won a prize in a contest you never entered, is trying to commit a crime with you as the victim.
    3. “Cracked” copies of commercial software downloaded from a bittorrent are likely to be infected.
    4. Software with a corporate brand, such as Adobe Flash Player, must be downloaded directly from the developer’s website. No intermediary is acceptable.


    Disable Java (not JavaScript) in your web browser(s). Few websites have Java content nowadays, so you won’t be missing much. This setting is mandatory in OS X 10.5.8 or earlier, because Java in those versions has bugs that make it unsafe to use on the Internet. Those bugs will probably never be fixed, because those older operating systems are no longer being maintained by Apple. Upgrade to a newer version of OS X as soon as you can.


    Follow these guidelines, and you’ll be as safe from malware as you can reasonably be.


    Never install any commercial "anti-virus" products for the Mac, as they all do more harm than good. If you need to be able to detect Windows malware in your files, use the free software ClamXav — nothing else.

    I got rid of it. I wanted to support the company 'just in case' but it was a drag on system and never felt it did anything and for me never "caught anything" but my $$ and upgrades.


    There are worse probably.


    Try running a system with less, less is more, too many cooks, and too much salt. Keep background processes to zilch or minimum. If you must then setup a "maintenance system" you use weekly maybe, not production. Not even SMART widgets.

    If those software removals don't do the trick...

    Looks a lot like a hardware problem to me. Either graphics card or usb bus. Run your hardware test and see if that tells you anything.
