    10.7.4 Exremely Slow
    On my IMac G3 250 ram Partioned 9.2 & 10.7 a year ago
    suddenly it takes 20 minuets to open. Safari and Itunes and othe applications are not working. I can open small applications and documents.
    On my Lc 250 Drive that also I have been using for many months I installed OS 10.4.3 to be able to use Safari.
    Please Help Ray438

    And just what kind of operating system is 10.7.4? Maybe it's slow because it's operating in the future? I think you meant to write 10.4.7 instead?

    How full is the hard drive? Also, have you verified the drive with Disk Utility to see if there were any errors?

    Check too the amount and type of RAM being used. That may need changing and/or upgrading to maximum for your G3 IMac.

    You really need 512Mb minimum to use OS 10.4 Tiger.

    iMac, i7 4GHz, 32GB memory, 1TB Flash Storage, OS X.12.6.
    Suggest 1GB for Tiger to see it run anywhere near reasonable.
