Fix spinning rainbow wheel


(Either drop your computer off to us in New Milton

or we can work on it remotely over the Internet)


Oh, that dreaded spinning rainbow wheel! Sometimes known as the Spinning Beach Ball

of Death (SBBOD), this annoying phenomenon is the Mac’s way of telling you it’s working so hard

that one (or more) processes simply can’t deal with anything else right now. So if you see the

wheel, and try to type something into your word processing programme, no text will appear.


The wheel, when appearing for only a few seconds, is fine. The Mac does have to work hard

sometimes and giving it a few seconds to catch up is no problem. It’s when the wheel remains

for 10+ seconds .. or even minutes at a time.


If the wheel appears too often, something is wrong. Something is making the Mac work much harder than it is supposed to be working.


This can be caused by a number of things including a computer virus, software corruption, incompatible software, etc.


TekWizard can analyse your system to work out what is causing the problem and put a fix in place.


This service costs only £80 and should take around two hours.  If it takes longer, I charge nothing more.
