Slow Boot Up With Lion Looking for utility software to help out
Posted 22 January 2012 - 09:23 PM
Since i've upgraded my iMac from Snow Leopard to Lion, the computer takes a lot longer to boot up. Once i log in, no issue, everything works as good as or better (faster) then before. However, it is very slow to boot up, displaying the white screen with apple logo and little circular time for a few minutes. I am guessing that there is some sort of conflict with perhaps incompatible software, but how do i find out what is causing the problem? I have downloaded "Mac Cleanse" from AppStore and it discovered that i had a "broken" version of Total Finder, which it removed from the system. This has only marginally improved the boot up time, though i haven't sat here with a stop watch. Is there another software/utility that can analyse the system better and find out/fix the issue? Or did i make a mistake altogether upgrading to Lion? My system is Intel Core 2 Duo 3.06 GHz, 4 GB RAM, 1 TB HDD.

as i said it could be way off but it does sound very similar to the issue you're experiencing with your load time.
