System UI Server - not responding
I have just upgraded to 10.4.8 & the new 1.1 firmware. I have a MacBook 13" laptop. Since upgrading, my laptop is running very slowly, the spotlight doesn't work. In addition, the System UI Server app is not responding. I have tried manually opening this app but nothing. Furthermore, I can't view any settings in menu bar, ie - bluetooth, network, battery, time/date.
I have recently tried Filevault & master password but have switched these both off & deleted filevault keychain.
Any pointers please.

1) You should uninstall any 3rd party software that puts items in the menu bar.
2) Launch the "Console" application (under /Applications/Utilities) and look for relevant error messages. Note that messages are labeled with the date & time so you can use that to locate the part of the log to look at. Copy & paste the relevant messages back here so we can see them.
Be sure to look at system.log as well as console.log (Use the "Logs" button (top-left) to see the various logs available - note that you will probably need to be an "admin" user to see the system.log)
3) Otherwise, try the standard troubleshooting suggestions:

In particular, be sure to try logging in as a different user to see if the problem exists there. (Create a new user via the Accounts preference panel if you only have the one user account so far.)
