    Good deal - that's a relief. Now, I think my next step would be to start looking at third party software you've added over the years, some of which, you might have forgotten about but are still nested on your machine.

    Best bet to do this would be to give your machine a scan with a tool like AppFresh:

    AppFresh for Mac

    This is a pay-for product, but I believe you can use it in trial mode just to see what's out there and what updates there may be. This may clue you into things that are out of date or otherwise incompatible with 10.8 that might be the culprit. If you can't update, I would recommend uninstalling.

    So, in 32 minutes, you scanned for and updated (or uninstalled) all of your outdated apps?

    OK, next step - let's run Onyx and have it perform all of the maintenance tasks.

    Go to the "Automation" tab and let it run all of the default selected tasks.

    You'll need to turn off Gatekeeper (temporarily, I would recommend re-enabling it at medium settings later, down the road).

    System Preferences => Security & Privacy => General tab => Allow applications downloaded from "anywhere".

    Hrmmm... while not a big deal, that is somewhat disconcerting. Go ahead and skip the SMART verification.

    OK - I think it's time to shift focus over to doing a clean install.

    Make sure you get a good full backup onto an external. I recommend using SuperDuper! or CarbonCopyCloner as opposed to Time Machine for this process. Once you have that, if you need further guidance on formatting the disk and starting clean and later re-importing your apps/data/docs, let me know .

    You can use Time Machine if you like. The reason I like SD! or CCC is that they create a bootable backup drive. So, if you need to revert back for whatever reason, you can do so instantly.

    Yes, you'd need to use a different external (or you could potentially repartition the external if you had the space to do so).
