    How much free disk space is available ??

     

    Click the Apple menu icon top left in your screen. From the drop down menu click About this Mac > More Info > System Report then select Storage on the left under Hardware.

     

    You'll see Available and Capacity. Make sure there's at least 15% free disk space.

     

    If there's sufficient free disk space, check for login items. Open System Preferences > Users & Groups > Login Items

     

    Delete any items there then restart your Mac to test.

     

     

    some times while using safari the cursor is in not responding i mean doing some process its showing colour wheel rotating

    Try troubleshooting plugins and extensions...

     

    From your Safari menu bar click Safari > Preferences then select the Security tab.

     

    Deselect:  Allow all other plug-ins. Quit and relaunch Safari to test.

     

    If that made a difference, instructions for troubleshooting plugins here.

     

    If it's not a plug-in issue, select the Extensions tab. If there are any extensions installed, turn that OFF, quit and relaunch Safari to test.  If that made a difference, uninstall one at a time, quit and relaunch Safari to test.
