I have a hackintosh that has been VERY stable, however it recently it has started to run in a strange manner. First note that the only recent change that I can remember is that I installed USB 3.0 drivers from a tool which is provided that I cannot mention here (latest version), however that was 2 weeks before this started happening.


I first noticed it with Chrome, the page would load, and just load half-way... the scrollbar wouldn't work and neither would links. When I closed chrome, I had to force-quit it otherwise it stayed open. I then began to notice it happening with everything (except apparently Safari). I tried rebooting, and the reboot froze half-way through, so I went ahead and rebooted using the button.


Since then, this has happened pretty much daily. Would anybody have any idea as to what could be happening?

Use console.app to look for clues in system.log.

Memory leak issue perhaps?
