Applications :: Finder Running Very Slowly - How To Repair Permissions

Mar 14, 2009

I am using an Intel based imac 2.8GHz, has 4GB memory, OS 10.5.6. It has 16GB Hard disk free.

After finder has been up for 20 seconds or so the response time between clicks gets really slow (1 or 2 minutes). The problem repeats every time Finder is restarted. When I look at the Activity monitor the Finder shows that it is taking up 840MB of RAM and most of the CPU.

PowerPC :: G4 Running Really Slowly - How To Repair

Mar 21, 2006

Okay, basically, I've had my PowerBook for a little over 2 years. Over the last few months, it's been incredibly slow. For example, I can only load one or two tabs at a time in Safari before the 'rainbow spinning wheel of death' appears, and takes a couple of minutes to leave, and load the page. This type of thing happens across the board, on pretty much all applications.

Jun 4, 2014

I just got a new Imac last week.  When I try to go into Command + R the repair mode it looks like it changed to a reinstallation mode which is what I don't want.  Is there another way to run disk permissions or disk repair in Mavericks?

My Mac Mini is running very slowly, everything I do is running slowly from google chrome to destop functions. My internet lags and I can hear the processor working chirping away all thwe time.

OS X :: Repair Permissions Isn't Repairing Permissions

Mar 29, 2009

Using OS X 10.5.6

When running Repair Permissions in Disk Utility, it reports that there are errors and that it's fixed them but if I run it again, the same errors keep appearing.

I've noticed that the current permissions on the errors are lrw-rw-rw- which I assume means that they are symbolic links and not the actual files which Disk Utility is expecting. Any idea what's going on?

MacBook Pro :: Running Extremely Slowly And Fan Continuously Running Loudly?

Jun 4, 2014

My Macbook Pro (from mid-2010) has recently started running EXTREMELY slowly, and the fan continuously runs loudly. From other posts, I have checked my activity monitor to see if any process is taking up a lot of the CPU % and have found that nothing seems high, except the kernel_task which, from what I understand, is supposed to be high. I have also attempted to reset the SMC which didn't fix the problem either. I have taken my computer to the genius bar 3 times now, and they keep telling me nothing is wrong (because it works perfectly there), but when I get it home the fan comes back on, and everything runs slowly.

Software :: Permissions Don't Repair?

Feb 16, 2010

For 2 days my permissions won't repair completely. I run the repair - it takes 20 minutes, examines every file on the computer and ends. When I run it agin it does the same.

CS3/4 suite, Max/MSP, all crash. MS word will not open. Apple software OK.

17" MacBook Pro 3.06, 250 G solid state. 8GB RAM. Running OS 10.6.2

Had Apples since the MacPlus. Never seen anything like this before. Rebuilt hard drive with DiskWarrior, zapped PRAM.

Problems seemed to begin on the weekend with a Flash plugin showing up as needing a new version. I replaced it with 10.0.43 and it didn't fix the problem. This may not be related of course.

MacBook :: Its Running So Slowly

Feb 12, 2012

My macbook is only a year old, and out of nowhere has started to run really slowly and the rainbow wheel of death is appearing more and more. I have 62gb available (when I opened finder this was at the bottom of the folder), and 2GB of memory when I checked 'about this mac'. I dont understand why this is happening, I have Sophos Anti Virus and Iantivirus they say their are no threats, I update my software regularly. Am I missing something? Currently I have openoffice running with one document open and I am using google chrome.

So my teacher's iMac is behaving weirdly. She turns it on and she is asked to type in the password to log in. It's not set as automatic login. But it says the password is incorrect. She is positive the password is typed in correctly. She reboots it and types in the same password. This time, it lets her in. I tried repairing permissions but to no avail.

OS X :: Repair Permissions After Software Update?

Apr 4, 2010

A couple of days ago I did a software update for the airport I believe. Everything went fine during the update and after. Every once in a while I do a permissions repair to do some maintenece. I just did it and it repaired prob like 20 entries. All the entries said airport in it. It did repair all of them though. I re ran it and none of them showed up again. So it seems fine. But just curious why it would do this, kinda odd?

OS X :: Zap PRAM - Repair Permissions & Run FSCK?

Sep 20, 2004

The idea for this quick GUIDE was thought up in this thread by kingjr3. Like the networking thread the idea of this is to have a quick point of reference for those common questions. How to Zap PRAM Zapping PRAM is simple, just reboot your Mac and hold down "Command(the Apple key)+Option(the Alt key)+P+R" while it is booting, when you hear the startup sound for the seond time the operation is complete, and you can release the key combination. Now just let your Mac boot as normal. How to Repair Permissions

- Navigte to "Applications > Utilities", and open up "Disk Utility".
- Select the volume where your OS resides, and hit the "Repair Disk Permissions" button.

If you are comfortable with using the Terminal (Applications > Utilities >, you can also enter this command to run repair permissions - "sudo diskutil repairpermissions /" (without the quotes), just enter your password when prompted. How to run FSCK

- Restart your Mac holding down "Command(the Apple key)+S" key to enter 'Single user mode'.
- Type "fsck -f", and hit return.
- Once complete type "reboot" and hit return to reboot you Mac back in to OS X as normal.

If there is anything that you think is wrong here, or you think I have missed any vital steps out, please post and let me know so that I can ammend this.

OS X :: Unable To Repair Disk Permissions?

When I open Disk Utility and select one of the 2 volumes in the left pane, the buttons "Verify disk permissions" and "Repair disk permissions" remain greyed out. Only the "Repair disk" and "Verify disk" buttons are enabled. This is not the startup Volume. For this volume all 4 buttons are enabled.

How can I repair the disk permissions on the volume?

Mac :: Mac Pro 1,1 Running Very Slowly After Crashing The System?

Aug 19, 2010

a few days ago i unplugged a USB cable from the back of my MacPro 1,1 and the screen turned all blue (like an overlay) and the machine crashed. Since then the computer has been running extremely slow? it takes 15-20 minutes to start up (if not more) and once booted, every action is delayed as the computer is "thinking". I can type about three letters into a search box per minute as an example.The machine has moments of clarity where I can open a window or start launching a program, then to begins to pause again.The machine as of now is unusable. I have been able to get the process manager open and did not see anything unusual.
