    I recently updated both JAVA and Flash when they "Popped Up" suggesting such. The spinning pinwheel became more and more prevalent even on minor tasks. I would click on anything and literally wait 3-5 seconds for any kind of response.

    After scouring the net, and after studying what was going on (very little processing demands were visible in Activity Monitor) one thread talked about removing Flash entirely. So I did.

    WOW!

    My MBP is once again "smokin" fast. (Basic HW config attached as image. I didn't think I was having HW issues.)
