I have an Apple Snow Leopard computer that a month ago or so quit being functional as I just get the spinning wheel.

I have tried about everything except a few things I couldn't get to work somehow.

The latest is: today I did the disk repair and permissions repair for the 3rd time

The first time the disk repair reported it was successful

The second time it reported unsuccessful.

24 hours later the 3rd disk repair and permissions repair (which took over 12 hours together) reported A-OK

Yet still when i get on it is the same spinning wheel.

The problem is that it is always tied up and gives the message about You were not logged out because of Firefox something

And also it says there is a script running do I want to stop it? I would of course select yes but I can't do that because of the spinning wheel.

Is there some other way in terminal I can figure out what the script is and stop it or something?

I really really need stuff off this computer asap and after a month I just have gotten nowhere.

THANKS for reading !:whistle: If you can gimmee a clue to fix this I'd be forever indebted!

Also - based on what I've described what's the prognosis for the disk - When the Disk Repair Failed it said back up your stuff and start over basically but then I ran it again and it came up good? :dance:
