Question about Apple iMac Desktop
I have a refurbished all in one iMac. The last six months or so, it is so slow. I have a fast dsl connection; I've wiped out cookies and history, all to no avail. Mostly I watch the circle go round and round while it loads far too slowly. Any other suggestions for how to lick this problem?
Well, there are a variety of reasons that can consequently drag down the performance of your Mac. Meanwhile, there are certain ways through which you can considerably speed up your Mac machine. For example, you can reset the browser settings to regularly clear useless caches and history, get rid of all unwanted widgets from the dashboard through the Dashboard control panel, remove unnecessary applications, find out & delete those duplicated files, or if your Mac is running out of memory, try upgrading the system RAM to boost its performance etc. However, if you prefer a more efficient way to speed up your Mac, try the following all-in-one Mac speedup tool as it can help resolve all issues in just a few clicks.

The spinning wheel can indicate insufficient memory for your OS (I would recommend at least 1GB for 10.4 on a G3). It can also indicate insufficient free space on the hard drive (you should have at least 6 GB free for swap space). It can also indicate you have a bad spot on your hard drive, and it is spending lots of time on re-reads and re-writes.
For slow systems when nothing else works, I often recommend the use of a shareware tool called "Snow Leopard Cache Cleaner" (it's just a name—it's backwards compatible with all past versions of the OS). However, the type of slowdowns this fixes don't tend to be accompanied by the spinning beach ball. Still, if used properly, it can't hurt.
