As an entrepreneur, you know that having an IT system or network for your business is effective and helps you grow your business efficiency and communication lines. Having computers in your business makes everything easier and makes it possible for your staff to carry out their duties with ease and they become very productive. Ideally, there are two types of computers; the windows based architecture, which is produced by many brands of manufacturers and the Macintosh, which is developed by Apple Inc.

 The Macintosh computer is not as popular as the windows architecture but is slowly catching up because of the refined and beautiful architecture that it has. They are designed not only to look better but to perform as well as the windows or in some cases better.

 However, there are a few issue that have plagued many people and the following are tips to solve this issue yourself. Consider this a “teaching you how to fish” article such that you are empowered with the skills to solve the Mac problems you might experience.

Major problems and solutions with the Mac

Slow applications

hen it comes to Mac computers, this is a rare occurrence and it is mainly caused by applications that are not used by your business. These applications can then lead to a lot of incompatibility issues which then slow down the applications that you are using. When this starts to happen you will need to go through your app list, especially apps you have down loaded from the Mac App Store, which might be affecting what you want to use.

 Remove these apps (because you can download them anyway, in case the problem does not abate) to free up space in your hard disks meaning that your Random Access Memory is free from the pressure. This will mean that your Mac will go back to working as it is meant to be.

Freezing and hanging

Every businessperson knows that time is money and you cannot afford to waste customer or client time because your Macs are freezing and cannot perform the tasks they are meant to. Though this seldom happens to these machines, if it does it might be very costly to your business in terms of productivity and client reaction.

This is a condition caused by different or conflicting disk permissions, which are what allow the user to access different files and folders. Incase these permissions are conflicted or changes when you install a program that requires you to use your administrator password which change the original setting and it messes up your whole file protection system leading to a frozen screen. To change these settings, you need to go to the Disk utility and select the startup disk options and click repair permissions and you are good to go.

It won’t work

You have probably heard an employee say this when they turned their computer on. There are many causes of this freeze but normally the operating system needs a restart and this “awakes” the computer again. This reduces crashing or slowing down when you have not made any other changes won the Mac software. Simply restart your Mac and you are good to go!
