Update to 10.9.5 has destroyed my Macbook Pro, please can someone help just getting the spinning disk whenever I ask it to do anything

Hi,
Updated a couple of weeks back an since my Mac has been almost unusable.
Running a 2012 MacBook Pro 4GB Ram, Intel I5 2.5Ghz with a 750GB Harddrive. This is a home PC not a work machine, typically accessing internet over WI-FI and for 2 years has run like a dream.
Seen some threads on here already about deleting the Open Directory Folder but seems to make little difference.
Sadly I haven't taken a back-up for ages as haen't had my external drive plugged-in.
Short of copying any pictures and docs elsewhere and starting a fresh I'm running out of ideas, anyone able to help?

But the Yosemite beta is not open to the general public, just people that signed up until they reached a million testers.  So it is unlikely you can get a legal beta copy.
Please post the EtreCheck output
<https://discussions.apple.com/docs/DOC-6174>
There is a chance you have software that is not playing nice on Mavericks.

    Try restarting your Mac.
    If that doesn't help, open a Finder window. Select your Home folder (it has a small house icon) in the Sidebar on the left.
    Now open the Library folder then the Prefernces folder.
    Move the com.apple.desktop.plist file to the Trash. Restart your Mac one more time.

  • My apple ID is showing someone elses email address and not mine so when i want to buy or update apps it brings this other email address up. please can someone help how do i put it back to my email address?

    my apple ID is showing someone elses email address and not mine so when i want to buy or update apps it brings this other email address up. please can someone help how do i put it back to my email address?

    First go here - https://appleid.apple.com/cgi-bin/WebObjects/MyAppleId.woa/ and login under the manage tab.  Check your information and be sure it is all correct.
    An AppleID is nothing more than an email address, so if you see another email address in the store, then someone has logged in with a different AppleID than yours.  Did you let someone else use your iPhone?

    I bought a MacBook Pro I can not sign up for the updates, because I do not have credit card. Only own debit card, but the system does not accept. What can I do?

    You do not need to "sign up" for downloading updates. Just run Software Update and let it access them directly thru the App Store.

  • Installed Safari update 6.1.1 for Lion today. Browser now running very slow and keep getting the "spinning pizza".

    I installed the Safari update 6.1.1 today for Lion. Now my browser running very slow, keeps locking up & getting the "spinning wheel". It stops spinning eventually, but recurs constantly when I try to navigate elsewhere, including within this site. Screen also jumpy/almost flickering. No other browsers installed on machine, only extension used is AdBlock. Tried to search for others with this issue, but not finding it posted and machine locking up is making it difficult. Any help much appreciated!

    Reset Safari.
    Click Safari in the menu bar.
    From the drop down select "Reset Safari".
    Just check the box beside “Remove all website data”.
    Click "Reset".
    Empty Caches
    Safari > Preference > Advanced
    Checkmark the box for "Show Develop menu in menu bar".
    Develop menu will appear in the Safari menu bar.
    Click Develop and select "Empty Caches" from the dropdown.
    Turn off Extension, and launch Safari.

  • Somehow, I do not have java anymore. i tried to update, and all of a sudden, it says it has no java anymore... can someone help?

    Hi
    i tried updating java, because a game i used to play no longer supports my version. after the update mac has provided, java had not updated in my browser, thus i downloaded it from a site. after doing this, firefox does not even find the applet. can anyone help me PLEASE!?

    For Mac OS X 10.5, Apple's Java Update 10 removed support for JavaPlugin2, preventing Firefox versions 4.0 and above and other non-Apple browsers from detecting that Java is installed.  Mozilla fixed the problem in Firefox 5.0.1 and above so this should no longer be a probem if you applied the latest Firefox update.
