After upgrading to Lion, I boot up and most of my icons don't appear on the right side of the top menu bar and when I hover over spotlight, I get the spinning pinwheel and there's no network access. The preferences open up fine but when I click on network, it hangs.
The only way I can get around it is to reboot while holding down the shift key.
I read about a fix (that didn't work for me) that clears the font caches by executing:
atsutil databases -removeUser atsutil server -shutdown atsutil server -ping
And another fix suggestion that said to use FontNuke & check the "Reset Spotlight" and "Repair Permissions" boxes before clicking "Nuke Font Caches". However, FontNuke isn't available yet for Lion.
Has anyone else had this problem and found a way to fix it?
Update: The new version of FontNuke is out yet it didn't fix my problem. Still SOL.
Anyone see this and have any ideas?
