I don't know if Paragon NTFS is causing this problem, but its been happening ever since I installed Paragon NTFS under 10.6.3. I will get random freezes, and beach balls. Could this be due to Paragon NTFS? NTFS on Snow Leopard has been buggy no matter what you're using to access those drives/partitions. I'd use NTFS-3G, but the performance is quite poor, and it does a lot of random reading. NTFSMounter is alright, but can cause kernel panics upon shutdown and bunch of other problems. Paragon NTFS is awesome, but it could be what's causing my freezing/beach ball problems, as I've gone through every possible troubleshooting step to narrow down the cause of my problem. Does Paragon NTFS have any sort of problem(s) with 10.6.3?
