    So uh I have an iMac running OS X 10.4.11 w/ 1.83GHZ Intel Core Duo and 1.5GB RAM

    i bought it back in Feb2006...as of the last year or so, I cant really use iTunes except to load my ipod. If i play a song i immediately get the spinning beachball and after about 45 seconds then the application "unfreezes" thus allowing me to either manually change songs, scroll playlist, or wait for new song to load on its own and then it freezes again.

    sometimes the auto updates will resolve the issue for about a day then its back to a useless program

    any help :hsugh:
    despite owning my mac for a little over 2 years, i havent really had the time to play around with it. I spent quite a bit of time deployed to iraq so it just sat at my house collecting dust

    try repairing permissions
    Utilities > Disk Utility

    click on the drive, choose "verify permissions" then when that's done, "repair permissions"

    or if you're lazy download this, select everything, then let it do it's thing
