Help!  My Macbook is running slow and glitchy lately

My macbook has been burning through my battery when I am running only one or two programs and even when the lid is closed and it is supposed to be on stand by.  My programs have been glitchy lately also.  Sometimes they run okay and at other times they are extremely slow and resource heavy though I don't know why.  I know that my macbook is older but thus far it has been a great computer and I would really like to squeeze a couple more years out of it.  Can you please give me some advice to help my computer run better with Yosemite?  I have included my computer stats and a EtreCheck for those who know what to look for on my computer.  Thanks for the help in advance.

    Please help, my iMac is running slow and plenty of memory available? I tried reading some of these forums to see what to do, I have already deleted all of my downloads that were stored in the downloads file.

    So I looked up the info on OWC as suggested and found the correct memory to upgrade but not sure how much to get and which option? I wanted to know how much space I have available to upgrade so I don't buy something that's more than what can be used. I'm not sure if I need 4GB or 8GB of ram? Also there are two options with every memory choice for instance:
    8.0GB PC3-10600 1333MHZ SO Kit (4GB + 4GB) w/Lifetime Limited Warranty
    Same Day
    $78.79
    8.0GB PC3-10600 SO-DIMM 204 Pin w/Lifetime Limited Warranty
    Same Day
    $82.79
    Not sure what the difference is in the two and which I would need to purchase? Thank you for all your help!

    Are any other web browsers installed, and are they the same? What about other Internet applications, such as iTunes and the App Store?
    If other browsers and Internet applications are also affected, follow these instructions and test. Any change?
    If only Safari is affected, launch the Activity Monitor application and enter "web" (without the quotes) in the search box. If a process named "Safari Web Content" is shown in red or is using more than about 5% of a CPU, select it and force it to quit by clicking the X or Quit Process button in the toolbar of the window. There may be more than one such process. Any improvement?
    Again, if only Safari is involved, open the iCloud preference pane and uncheck the box marked Safari, if it's checked. Any change?
    Are there any other devices on the same network that can browse the Web, and are they affected?
    If you can test Safari on another network, is it the same there?
    If you connect to your router with Wi-Fi and you can also connect with Ethernet, do that and turn off Wi-Fi. Any difference?

  • MacBook air running slow and fan really loud how to fix?

    MacBook Air running slow and fan is really loud and using lots of battery.  How to fix?

    Runaway applications can shorten battery runtime, affect performance, and increase heat and fan activity

  • My MacBook is running slow and freezes

    My MacBook is running slow and freezes.

    If this started happening without your having made any changes and without a warning of low disk space, then it's likely that the startup drive, or some other hardware component, is failing. Back up all data immediately, then make a "Genius" appointment at an Apple Store to have the machine tested.
    There are ways to back up a computer that isn't fully functional. Ask if you need guidance.

  • My macbook is running slow and i wanted to know which SSD is compatible for a 2009 model macbook pro??

    my macbook is running slow and i wanted to know which SSD is compatible for a 2009 model macbook pro??

    GitongaKuria,
    several people here use Crucial, OWC and Samsung SSDs. I have a Samsung 840 PRO SATA III SSD in my Mid 2010 MacBook Pro, and your 2009 model and my 2010 model both have SATA II interfaces — these brands of SATA III SSDs (at minimum) work well in MacBook Pros with SATA II interfaces. In the case of the Samsung 840 EVO SSD, make sure that you visit the Samsung SSD firmware page to download and install its latest firmware.

  • MacBook Pro running slow and freezing--Installed OnyX

    I am having problems with my MacBook Pro. For a while I was using Safari and getting the beachball A LOT. So, I switched to Chrome. For the past two days it has been running slow and freezing...when typing it would freeze and a few seconds later it would resume and the letters I typed would appear. After reading forums, I did the repair disk permissions. Nothing changed. I downloaded OnyX. After executing two tasks under cleaning..I believe System and User, it is already running better and hasn't froze once. My question is...which tasks should I perform on OnyX? I read somewhere that not all of them should be done. Like I said, I only did 2 and then stopped. I'm kind of over my head and don't want to screw anything up or do anything that doesn't need to be done. Any help would be appreciated.

  • MacBook Pro running slow and lagging during app switches/start

    I mean, it's really getting bad. I have to force quit repeatedly and then by some miracle - something takes and the program opens. Most of the time this happens with Photoshop and Firefox (which is what I use most often). PS does not have a bunch of add-ons running or installed. It's pretty much CS3 factory.
    I ran Disk Utility yesterday - during the verify disc, it told me to boot from the install disc to fix the 2 errors it found. I backed everything up and I did. Ran all the verifies and repairs from the start disc.
    Still running slow and by this I mean when I open an application it takes a ridiculously long time to open the double-clicked document or just the program itself to get to a new doc. I noticed it again this morning with Excel (which is something I don't usually leave open and running).
    What else I have done, which helped but just a smidgen ... was to remove all the extra fonts (and I did have thousands) in Font Book. I also removed Font Book entirely because it was another program that was locking up and needing force quit all the time ... and I just plain don't like it. So I installed Suitcase Fusion and only have the bare minimum needed in there (which kind of bothers me since I am used to have thousands on hand that just need to be turned on or off - yes I know, I keep them all off unless they are absolutely needed). But I only have one set in the Suitcase (42 font family).
    I got my laptop in Feb ... so this painfully slow and lagging stuff shouldn't be happening. It used to work great. I could have all the apps open, flipping between them, really getting things done.
    Here's my comp info:
    Version 10.6.4
    Processor: 3.06 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    Memory: 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3
    HD: 500gb but I have 345gb free
    Any obvious things I am overlooking? Any suggestions on how to get this fairly new thing back up to speed?
    Thanks!

    HI,
    I also removed Font Book entirely because it was another program that was locking up and needing force quit all the time.

  • HT2353 Macbook Pro running slow and freezing

    So it just started yesterday running slow and freezing. I'm starting to get very frustrated. I research to see what could be the problem. I saw people suggesting that it could be the storage. My storage is 464.75 free out of 499.25. I just brought this computer last year on christmas. I thought it could be adblock but it never cause me problems but I paused the app and it still doesn't work. What is wrong? Should I restart the computer? If I do how can I backup my things? Also i'm really not a computer person so if you can describe to me the problem in layman terms that'll be great!

    OH! and it's not just safari that's going slow but itunes,word,etc

    Hello,
    See if the Disk is issuing any S.M.A.R.T errors in Disk Utility...
    http://support.apple.com/kb/PH7029
    Open Activity Monitor in Applications>Utilities, select All Processes & sort on CPU%, any indications there?
    How much RAM & free Disk space do you have also, click on the Memory & Disk Usage Tabs.
    Open Console in Utilities & see if there are any clues or repeating messages when this happens.
    In the Memory tab of Activity Monitor, are there a lot of Pageouts?

  • Macbook Pro running slow and freezing...please help?

    Hi there everyone. I have a Macbook Pro that's a few years old and it started to experience some slowdown and freezing recently, which was even worse after installing Yosemite. It's mostly running slow on Safari but it seems that programs are freezing and taking way longer to open and close too. I'm not all that familiar with diagnosing these sorts of issues on Macs and was hopeful that someone could take a look at this for me? This is the EtreCheck report, and any help would be much appreciated! Thanks guys.

    Hi,
    Maybe you should take a look at your Firefox add-ons and get rid of the ones you don't really need. Also, you have two torrent items mentioned in your report. Downloading torrents runs the risk of bringing in malware.
    Another thing to do as maintenance is to start into Recovery -- holding down Command and R keys together while booting up -- and using Disk Utility (bottom of the box that appears) to Verify your disk and Repair disk permissions.
    Regards.

  • Macbook Pro running slow and getting hot very quick

    So I own a macbook pro, and i bought it last november. Lately its been running really slow, and it gets hot really quickly.
    when i go to look at my storage, it says i have 435.14 GB free out of 499.25 GB so i dont think space is an issue.
    What can i do to fix this? I can't get on my macbook for longer than 10 minutues without it getting hot, and it takes me forever to load pages, etc.
    It's still fairly new so i dont see why i would be having problems already. I only really use it for school and some misc web surfing. can someone help me out please!

    You are still under warranty.  Call Apple tech support.  Let them deal w/it.
