Hi everyone.


Out of nowhere yesterday, my MacBook began running incredibly slow.  Logging in, opening applications, clicking on anything at all and I get the spinning  rainbow wheel of doom for a few minutes, then the computer seems to "catch up."


Here's what I've done to no avail so far:

-checked for Mac protector. I don't have it.

- reset the SMC. That seemed to make the computer run at normal speed, but only for about 10 minutes. Then back to slow.

-start up in safe mode. Didn't help


Any other ideas would be wonderful!!




MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.4)
