I have added 4gigs of ram so that I have a total of 8 gigs but still getting the spinning wheel. Computer is running slower than it used to. I do have Fusion software on my computer so that I can run Windows 7, which I previously had running in Bootcamp. I need some type of software to check my computer for any error's and can fix if possible. I have not made backups, so wiping the HD and re-installing Mountain Lion OSx is not an option. Thanks for any suggestions.
I make backups all the time now, but I was able to run a full defrag that took all night and my MBP started really running fast. Now I have the problem with having to free up memory all the time because it's running slow again. Now if I try to defrag I get an error message.
PLEASE NOTE: Because the disk cannot be unmounted, you may see spurious error messages in the output from this test. This is normal, as the operating system and other programs are using this disk, so changes during the verification process could confuse fsck into thinking that there are errors when there are none.
fsck exited with code -1
I have used the disk utility app and it shows all kinds of error's, mostly having to do with printer locations and a few others. I'm trying to fix this now.
