Ask iBAM: Help! My Mac is Locked Up & Freaking Out

I got a question from one of our readers tonight and I thought it would be a good subject for you guys to weigh in on as I don’t think I’m fully capable of answering his questions and solving the issue(s). So that said, here’s Robert’s question:

“All of the sudden, my Mac is freaking out. First, I noticed that it was slowing down an awful lot. Now, I can’t even restart or shut it down normally. Disk Utility isn’t working and I can’t even eject my CD. Any ideas how I can troubleshoot this issue and get my Mac back?”

Thanks in advance!
