I want to kill my Macbook Pro

Yes, this is what I’ve been feeling lately with my rainbow-colored mac loading screen coming up as soon as I try to start up Google Chrome, Microsoft Word or any other usually lightning speed software.

I’m usually able to figure these problems out myself but this one has been a tough cookie. The Macbook is one year old, has been working like a charm, and I’ve had no second thoughts about switching from PC to Mac until now. But the problem with a Mac is that it doesn’t seem to give you the tools to figure things out yourself, it’s quite limited when it comes to system tools because the idea is that it should just work without defrags, restarts, troubleshooting, etc.

Well, now it doesn’t. Especially Chrome takes ages to load and I can’t think of a single thing I’ve done differently in the last few days to create this problem.

Someone knows what to do before I kill my Macbook Pro?
