My question is how to diagnose an IMac or what is bogging down my Imac all of a sudden?
The little wheel is spinning and it will stop recording in the middle of recording?
I only use this for music and have no other software on it except Presonus Studio One.
Any advice or links would be appreciated.

My first thought was the hard drive might be failing, or the case and its components could be overheating due to clogged vents. Remove all dust from air holes and the heatsink fins on the CPU (unplug power first).
Thanks Wiz, I have tried a number of things including taking it to to a shop, using Malwarebytes and a friend that is an Apple guy and seem to get nowhere. I updated to High Sierra and that basically wiped my iMac clean... I figured okay as I only use this for music and have the material backed up on an external drive. The High Sierra made it even worse as in slower yet.
Now that I am in Converse maybe I will look for another Computer repair shop.
There is virtually nothing on this IMac except Presonus Studio One. Hard drive is empty.
