    There is your answer billwill inadequate hard drive space. Larger hard drive or start erasing unwanted programs and files.

    CleanMyMac 2 offered again today as a 'special' from MacForums alas.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    It's less than 20% utilized.

    billwill, what kind of specs are we talking about here? What kinds of applications are you running?

    Specs:
    8 GB 13" MacBook Pro, 64GB WiFi/4G iPad, 32GB iPhone 5
    Spinning beachball
    I have 424GB of space on my 500GB hard drive. I use FireFox 98% of the time and Safari for 2%. My usual apps are Mail, Word, Calendar and playing videos sent to me by friends and business associates. I read a lot of news websites but then I just open the site, click on the articles I want to read, read them and then exit the site.

    Onyx seemed to slow my system down. I can "stop" the spinning beachball by running both sections of Disk Utility but it doesn't last long before the beachball pops up again.

    I will greatly appreciate any assistance you may offer me. Do I need to run a specific diagnostic program? Thanks very much.

    If that was the other way around with Safari being used 98% then i would say, quit Safari when the beachballs happen, because at the moment for me, after 24hrs, Safari is leaking Memory to the likes of 6gb and i cant do a thing, but because thats not the case here, im not sure what to suggest

    CleanmyMac2 is excellent
    Contrary to what others think I find this program to be very good. I have used it regularly and never had any problems with it.

    And you would have to be one of the lucky ones, Honestly !!!!

    I could go through these forums, other forums, google, Bing, Yahoo and i could keep going, and show you more than there should be on the internet about one product and how bad it is, even been called a Hoax and so on.

    At the end of the day, it works for you, great, but there is years of knowledge here, and we have seen it all, and that is why we steer people clear, because we would rather them be safe than sorry, and to be totally honest, there are at least 2/3/4/5 better Apps out there that do a job 100% better than this and that . . .

    Well, thank you to all of the vets/mods for your help!

    So, I'm about to download ONYX, I don't see a 'payment' filed yet, but I have not downloaded it yet. I assume this is NOT free? Any suggestions before I download this onto my iMac? Any little annoying things like, Oh, I forgot to tell you about doing this before you download......?

    Again, thanks to everyone, hopefully I'll have good new to report once I download this.

    Specs:
    15" MBP '06 2.33 C2D 4GB 10.7; 13" MBA '11 1.8 i7 4GB 10.10; 21" iMac '13 2.9 i5 8GB 10.10; 5s & 5c
    Make sure you download the version matching the version of OS X you are running.

    In this particular case, you would assume wrong. Onyx is free.

    There is a lot of stuff in it.
    Until you spend the time to go through and look at all the tabs to see what it can do, recommend using the Automation tab, checking everything in the Cleaning and Maintenance sections. I only use it when I begin noticing a little slow down - not as regular "before anything happens" maintenance like in that other OS - you'll likely need it no more often than once every 2-4 months.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    No, there are no surprises. I have been using it for several months and run it once a week.

    Whaaaaaaat????? How is that even possible? They can't get your email address from here! Was this a direct email, or a notification of a message you received privately here in the forum? I'd love to get an admin's take on this. Are the site owners involved in this somehow?

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).
