Since installing Lion OS on my Macbook, email sometimes does not open and I have to quit email and then click on it before I can get emails. I have the same problem with Finder. I have tried to reset the desktop options, but it seems like the problems go away for a while and then return. If I never shut down the computer or due a restart then every thing works okay.

The only thing I can suggest is to reinstall Lion but this time do a clean install instead of an upgrade over Snow Leopard. That usually eliminates many of the small annoying problems that can occur. Be sure to make a complete backup of your hard drive before doing so. Use Time Machine.

I downloaded lion from the aps store. Do I need to get a hard copy before I do a clean reinstall? I keep my Macbook backed up with time machine on a passport portable hard drive.
