Super slow after last update...
« on: November 13, 2020, 04:41:55 PM »
Hey guys, all three of our iMacs here got an update to Catalina in the last day or so. Ever since, our computers are incredibly slow to open any programs or files for the first several (15-30 minutes) of running, then will operate as normal, then run incredibly slow again for no apparent reason. Nothing shows up in Activity Monitor, but it can seriously take several minutes to open acrobat, or XMF or anything. The little dock icon will bounce forever.

Any idea what could have happened? Restarts/full shutdowns don't seem to get rid of it.

you may want to do a FSCK at a minimum


restart and hold down the command + S keys, then type in what it says on the screen.

maybe try Onyx

Apple has had server issues. Their main server that tracks your every mouse click has been having issues.
