Tough question to answer without any information about your iMac. First place to check though is your start up items, look in system preferences and users and groups select the user then select start up items.



That is the first place to check, if that is not it then please let us know and we can have you do an EtreCheck report. We will provide directions on how to do the report if it’s needed.

Please first get a complete and current backup (if you don’t already have one), as slow system performance can be a symptom of a failing hard disk drive.



Then as mentioned above, do download and run EtreCheck, and share the report to the clipboard. Open a new reply here and then press the button that looks like a printed page (text attachment) to get a text input box big enough to paste the hardware and software configuration report here.
