    Activity Monitor is blank
    I don't know if this is the correct place to post this but I hope someone can help. My Mac (Quad Core Intel Xeon with 6GB) is very sluggish. I open Activity monitor and it shows that CPU usage for User is 75% and for System it is 22%. However the Activity Monitor screen is blank. I have no idea what processes are running. Any ideas what is going on? Thanks for your help.
