    Computer Running Slow After Software Update
    It updated Safari and other things that I can't remember but now my computer is super slow and lags big time. It also takes forever to boot up or restart. Any ideas?

    Specs:
    iMac 2010 27" QuadI7 OSX10.11, iMac 2008 OSX10.11, MBP Late2011OSX10.11 , iPad Air, iPhone 3GS
    After some updates, the first boot can be slow but that clears up after another reboot. Sounds like you having slowdowns once in OSX also. I would repair Disk Permissions in Disk Utility and reboot. See if that helps.

    If not, report back!

    I did both of those and everything is still lagging. Opening up programs, running programs, my browser, my internet connection, my videos skip. I keep pinwheeling..

    How old is the Mac and what are the specs? How much free space do you have on your hard drive and what size ?

    Evidently I'm not the only one to be experiencing problems since the Safari Security Update of 4/18/11.

    Please see post #2 in the thread: http://www.mac-forums.com/forums/os-...r-problem.html

    Thanks in advance all,
