Having a real problem with rendering, render queue, locks/freezes up and suddenly est. remain: 240 hrs

So I'm running a fairly brand new iMac with the i5 2.7 ghz intel core and 16 gb 1600 Mhz DDR3 memory, as well as a (small) SSD inside the box.

I'm running an updated CS6 version of After Effects.

This is the first time I run AE on this computer, although I have been using premiere without much problems.

At first I was just going to make a simple animation with some lights and 3d text flying all over the place. Left it to render overnight, came back and the est. remain had gone up to 240 hrs. (the clip was 20 second long).

So I did a bunch of tests, reduced everything down to the simplest animations, tried a couple of different formats, even the TIFF image exporting solution someone mentioned, as well as reinstalling, cleaning the computer etc. Nothing works, the render still "starts" with some hiccups, then freezes with a ridiculous est. remain time and nothing happens.
Trying to use the Adobe media encoder doesn't work either.

Suggestions?

Give more details about your computer, including the GPU.

You're not trying to use the ray-traced 3D renderer, are you?
