I've had my MacBook for a bit over two years. Lately, it's been running very, very, slowly. I'll type something, and the pinwheel spins...and spins...and spins some more. Eventually, whatever I've typed appears on the screen, but the response is maddeningly slow. I've run Onyx occasionally, but I'm wondering if there's something- anything- else I could or should be doing. HELP!!

How much memory do you have? How much hard drive space is remaining?

What programs are running in the background?

Regards.
