I downloaded a few songs onto my Macbook pro and everything was fine. I've had it for months and it ran so smooth and now the color wheel randomly pops up all of the sudden within the past few days it started. I don't know what i need to do to make it stop.

When does the rainbow beach ball usually pop up? Were the songs downloaded from iTunes?

What OS are you using? Leopard, Snow Leopard?

Download OnyX and give it a go.

Once you open it up, run automation.

Report back to us after you have.
