I have a MacBook Pro. My applications are not responding. When I open photo booth it stops responding. When I try to make a video call on skype it stops responding. I'm tired of seeing that beachball. I'm tired of force quitting. I have already tired repairing disk permissions. I have already tried using another account. Both failed. I noticed using safe boot made the applications work. But I can't use my wacom tablet in safe boot. Going into safe boot, and restarting into normal mode made apps work. This method does not work anymore. Another thing I noticed was when I boot my mac, the progress bar below the apple logo does not load completely. It loads a little under half way then it takes me to my Yosemite. Please help me. I need my applications to work. If there is a solution, please tell me. Thanks in advance!

HELLO. This is the 2nd thread you started on this problem!

In your first thread I asked you for the specs on your computer & what OS it is running. Since this info hasn't been listed in your Mac-Forums profile...and because this is a completely new thread...you need to provide this info again (folks aren't going to remember the specs from other thread).

Also regarding the "Beachballs". I also (in the other thread) asked you to read the "Beachballs" link in my signature. There's alot of good info there about the "Beachballs"!:)

How much disk space do you have left? What applications are you normally running? Open up Activity Monitor and take a screen shot (CMD+Shift+4+space) of each tab in the that window and then paste it here.

What applications are running in the top menu bar? Check you Login Items in Accounts to determine that..
