[FONT="Book Antiqua"][COLOR="Navy"]My IMAC Snow Leopard had been down and out for almost a week due to spinner problem.
Everytime it has happened if/when I manage to get it loaded/running I get the message that a script is running and then a choice if I want to stop it click "here". Well when I do that all that happens is the wheel starts turning again.
This was going on for several weeks but I could eventually use computer now its past using.
I have tried the Utilities Disk Repair and Permissions Repair and after a couple of tries managed to get both of them to complete but it hasn't helped the spinner problem.
I never paid much attention to reference any particular "script" but once I think it said something about Chrome but not sure.
But now I have copied, hopefully correctly, the link it shows to the problem script (see below):
I believe I got that right, I can't read my own writing lol.
I do use frequently a photo site "Imgur" and YouTube and a couple others that have an Embed command so I'm not sure if this has any bearing on it or not.
Anybody have a clue where to go from here?
whenever I so much as touch the mouse the SPINNING WHEEL thing starts again.
Does it matter what's hanging it up and what else can I do to stop this very annoying spinner?
I try to take heart in getting the two disk repair/permissions repair to work but its not the answer obviously. I really need/want my computer back.
Thanks for any help you can offer me.
