You can try updating the prebindings....the only way I know how is through terminal or Bash subsystem by entering the following command
sudo update_prebinding -debug -root / -force

although Apple is working on a new up date to solve this type of problem on some macbook pro computers using os x 10.5 should be out soon I can't remember the specifics though something about the video card I think

you can also check your disk permissions and or reset them using chmod command but that can be tricky if you're not familiar with Bash protocol

Why is my Macbook Pro, late 2011, with Yosemite running very slowly?

Hard drive could be heading south. Can we assume the several 1000 emails are not important as they are not archived? Is so I suggest getting a SSD and replacing the stock HD.

When I go to compose mail, I cannot attatch a file. Where it used to say

  • The majority of the time the reason an e-mail will not open or send is because the computer is cluttered from extended use without being cleaned up (defragmanted).

  • IF you have McAfee then you can access their defragmentor. If you have one on your operating system you can access it their as well. This is part of "optimizing" your computer.

  • Open your browser and go to tools and erase all your history, cookies, CACHE, etc. This will clean thing up a bit there.

  • Also if you have a ton of music, pictures and videos on your computer you may want to put them onto a thumb drive as these things can slow your computer down as well.

  • To defrag a MAC ---
  1. 1. Open the Disc Utility program, which is located in the "Utilities" folder of your "Applications" directory. Highlight your hard drive from the list and have the program repair the permissions.
  2. 2. Look for a program to defrag your computer. There are some free utilities that can work on your Mac hard drive, but you should seriously consider purchasing a program because of the stability and support that comes with a purchased product.
  3. 3. Take steps to back up your data before you defrag a Mac hard drive. Data loss is unlikely with well-respected programs, but defragging is a long and extensive process, and you can never be too safe.
  4. 4. Plan to run your defragging program during a time when you won't need to use your computer. No matter which program you decide on, it can take up to several hours to defrag a Mac hard drive. Some companies even suggest running the program overnight.

  • Mac Janitor is pretty easy to use. You just click on the pic that says "All Tasks" and the defrag will run. When you see "done" then it is done.

  • If you have a PC and are running windows then the is usually a disk defragmenter available.
  1. 1. Click on the globe in the lower left hand corner of your screen and type in defragmentor.
  2. Then defragment the C drive.

  • Make sure to empty the trash as well.

  • When you have done all this you need to restart your computer twice. After the reset let everything boot up all the way. Then reset it again. Then go try your e-mail and you will be surprised how fast the e-mail, and the web in general works for you now.

  • Also I recommend that you run a full security sweep with your internet security program as well. Make sure that stays up to date. And make sure when all is said and done that you do two resets of your computer.

  • Hope this helps

Print too slowly

You possibly might have too many other documents open at the same time or you are printing graphics which will slow down the printer. Also the print driver might be outdated so visit this site to see if there is an updated driver.

If you are using a MAC then the issue might be not the right driver so if you are on a MAC see if it is also the latest driver.

Dlink wireless wbr1310 connection problem

Try this,

Shut down everything starting with your computer, then the router, then the modem.
Wait 30 seconds. Restart everything in this order:
Modem first (wait for all the lights to come on) then start your router (again wait till everything lights up and settles down) finally start up you computer.
Check to see if you can connect to the routers control panel which is usually

In the control panel there should be a place to enter your computers MAC address, usually under MAC Address Filtering. To find the Mac Address of your computer, go to Start/Run/ when the window opens type CMD and hit enter.
A Dos window should open, type in the following. ipconfig -all
It should then display your Mac Address which you will want to write down so that you have it ready to type into the Mac Address filter .

After entering all the info. Restart everything just as I instructed in the beginning and you should be good to go.
