    Can anyone help with another amateur having problems with severe slowdown in LR 5.7?


      I've noticed severe slowdown in performance exclusively within LR and especially in the library module.  I've spent considerable time in other forums and tried many things suggested to others with very similar problems, but still cannot fix this.  Most recently LR quit working altogether with the "Lightroom has encountered a problem and needs to close",  Upon restarting, the following error message appeared:  The catalog named "Lightroom 5 Catalog" was left in an inconsistent state.  Lightroom must restore the catalog before proceeding".  It has been trying to "restore the catalog" for about 75 hours now.
