hi. this is my first post. i am not very computer savvy and this may seem a silly question, but it's driving me bonkers. as of late, i've been increasingly plagued by a slow computer. why do i get the "spinning beach ball", what does it mean and how can i get rid of it? is it my mac, the software, the internet service provider (you see i really am pretty clueless)? i have a mac with OS X, using explorer. any answers/suggestions would be greatly apprecieated.

This used to happen to me on my old iMac G3, It is usually just your computer working showing it is getting old. If your computer Is old you might want to check out the mac min, just 5000$ and a great buy.
