    Desktop screen freezes in Mountain Lion

    This is happening quite frequently now in my Mac which runs with the latest Mountain Lion. Whenever I am in the desktop screen it just freezes and doesnít work at all. All I can do is to restart my Mac. Anyone came across this problem before? What should I do now to fix this problem?

    Do the force restart your device or force shut down.
    After that take back up of all your data and also reboot the system.

    Delete temporary files and unwanted data-- These are the two that makes your device slow and creates problems like freezing.

    To avoid these type of issues, please make a note of the following:

    Scan once in a day.
    Delete unwanted files.
    Remove temp files once in a week.
    Take Backup in intervals.

    I am very happy to provide this info to you and thanks for posting your query.

    Hi,

    See,though it is considered that Mac OS is the most secured OS in the current scenario.
    But nothing is 100% true.
    I think there might be some virus that might be causing the system to freeze after a fixed amount of time.
    See,the viruses are nothing but software programs that are executed in the background.
    They can hamper and affect the functioning of the system.
    So I will recommend you to scan your system.
    But if the problem still persists,then you need to reinstall the OS on your machine.
    Maybe some of the files might have been corrupted and as a result,the system is hanging again and again at the same point.


    Bye!

    Hi................,


    This is because ---->
    * Your mac do not have a antivirus.
    * Until you have a antivirus your mac is not secured.

    -- Now restart the mac.
    -- After you restart the mac you can Press C option during boot time.
    -- Then press option on repair disk.
    -- After repair is done restart the mac.

    Problem is solved....

    Thanks

    Hi,


    Yeah! I have got your problem and i have solution for it.

    1.May be the problem of the virus.

    2.Though mac has high security some times it may also be affected by virus.

    3.So you better to install the best antivirus software and scan your Mac.

    4.If that is not the problem then your OS version may not be compatible with your Mac.

    5.Or some of your mac OS files may be got deleted accidentally.

    6.So you try to restore using Time Machine.

    Have a nice day....

    Re: Desktop screen freezes in Mountain Lion

    hi,

    dear i think you have this problem in your device due to installation of the large size application
    and when you will install the large size application then for their installation they will take the ram
    memory of the device and due to it low space is available for the proper working of the device
    and when you will perform any action then your device get hanged.
    if you want to solve this problem then you have to reset your
    device because it will uninstall these apps.
    thanks.
