Spinning Beach Balls everywhere after 10.6.6 update

Recommended Posts

I updated to 10.6.6, boots fine with hardware working, but now everything from using Safari to browsing Finder causes the spinning beach ball. Wasn't like this in 10.6.5. Tried regular and combo update. Any ideas? Thanks.

 

 

For Safari, I had to revert to an ealier version of flash player. I uninstalled and went back to 10.0.r45.

Hi guys,

 

Having same problem, 10.6.5 killed browsing (Unless i uninstall flash) and 10.6.6 is no better. Where can i download this R45 version from? Looked everywhere..Or is there a newer solution.

 

Thanks

Hmm, I'm on 10.6.6 and I haven't noticed anything like that... I have the latest version of flash so I don't know what the difference is :/

Well as an update I found R45, works so that safari no longer crashes, but when playing flash vids (eg porn from xhamster) video is extremely choppy, only playing 2-3 seconds before stopping so clearly it has not fixed the problem.

 

It does appear pretty wide spread though, although no problems on my 15" Mbp. My board is a 965P DS4 (Which for the record also has no sound from its ALC888 and i've tried a few different kexts)

Same problem :D:D:(

Boot is Ok, but i see spinning ball everywhere...programs, system preferences..., just start and beachball come and stay forever. I have try to launch activity monitor to see what happens in background, but beachball again.

Repair disk permission,verify disk, repair and still nothing...

Until this update everything works perfect.

Is it possible on mac to revert system update?

Guys,try to open up your Spotlight preferences,click on the "Privacy" tab and add ALL your hard drives/partitions to exclude from the indexing process...close and reboot the computer.Im guessing your hard drive is acting strangely too..this should fix it. :)
