I have been using my Mac for for many months without any problem. But recently all of a sudden the Mac became insanely slow.
I opened Activity Manager to see what was happening. For three processes SystemUIServer, UserEventAgent and loginwindow, the memory gradually increases and reaches upto 2 GB for each process. This completely hangs up my Mac.
I tried the following:
- Restart Mac
- Restart Mac in safe mode
- Manually kill the processes
- Remove Date and Time from Menu bar (this was supposed to be the problem for the SysteUIServer process's memory according to many users)
- Removed the externally connected keyboard and mouse(some had suggested this for UserEventAgent's memory)
No luck with any of those. The moment I log in, the memory spikes up.
Any idea what the hell is happening? Please help.
