I updated my MacBook Pro with Mountain Lion and now it is slow in starting up and loads a number of probrams. How can I fix the problem?

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    When you shutdown or restart uncheck the box to "reopen windows when logging back in".

    Thanks macjack this helped but it's still slow compared to the old system.

    Have you tried starting in Safe Mode and see if the slowness still occurs?

    Restart holding the "shift" key.

    (Expect it to take longer to start this way because it runs a directory check first.)


    If this works look in System Preferences > Users & Groups > Login items and delete any third party login items (-), you can always add them back with the (+). Also look in /Library/Startup Items. Nothing is put in that folder by default, so anything in there is yours.


    Reboot normally and test.

    Which exact version and year of MacBook do you have, and how many GB's of RAM are in it?



    Hope this helps
