Friday night I updated my iMac. 

The update has pretty much nuked my computer. It's slow as molasses now. Loading a picture in the previous post took 6 minutes. I looked up fixes and noted a lot of inquiries along similar lines. The "fix" given involved waiting 24 - 48 hours for the computer to reset all systems. Now, 4 days later,  I can use the internet watch videos OK now but anything dealing with accessing files takes forever, and Preview wont even show thumbnails. It takes over 15 minutes to boot up the computer. I think I might just return the computer to factory settings and be done with this.

I'm not a terribly computer savvy person (Obviously...I use a Mac) so I don't check my blog for tech tips. If I had, I would have spent much less than 13 hours trying to deal with this issue. Thank you J. Greely for putting the workaround links in the comments. Apple REALLY wants you to solve this problem by installing Catalina. The links you provided allowed me to re-install Mojave (which Apple seems to be hiding in the app store)and saved me from that fate. 

Thank you.

1 The suckage is widespread enough that Apple should have a fix out soon. Or the first attempt at one, anyway; if they had decent QA, this wouldn't have happened in the first place...
