Hello Collective Wisdom,

 

I have a MacBook Pro from mid-2009 and have recently experienced some problems. There's an above-average bootup time, and whenever I try to perform any functions (say, open a browser window, go into Finder, launch an app, try to type a URL, search for anything), the Spinning Ball of Death comes up for about 5-7 minutes before the function resolves.

 

I've been able to get into Disk Utility and it suggested I use Command + R at the bootup screen to do a HD Repair, which I did. But the problem is still occuring.

 

What do I Do?
