Since today, my mid 2011 15 in Macbook pro freezes after login on the admin account. The status bar doesn't even appear, nor the desktop icons. Nothing responds and I need to force shutdown to be able to reboot. Those are the things I already tried : - rebooting in safe mode : desktop icons will appear, but everything freezes after a couple of seconds. I believe since safe mode doesn't work the problem is related with the Finder, DS_Store issue, icon issue, or an iCloud issue. So I went to the next step. - running the disk utility First aid tool in the OSX recovery tools (reboot+Cmd+R) : It says the disk is OK. - running /sbin/fsck -FY in single user mode : the disk seems to be OK. I don't know what to try next. Since I really need my computer for the next days, I might go to an Apple store later this week. I would of course be really happy to avoid the costs of that option.
Does any of you have an idea of what I should try next?
As Allan suggested, the problem was my drive beginning to fail. I changed it to a ssd and everything went back to normal.
