Hi, i have a G5 power mac running version 10.4 i need to update it but i am having major problems with it.

When i click the apple logo top left and then click SOFTWARE UPDATE the itunes update works and so does the quicktime but when i try and install the mac osx 10.4.11 combo the message "the application installer quit unexpectedly. Mac osx and other applications are not affected......"

I would try rebooting and then run the update again. If that doesn't work, you should be able to download an updater directly from the Apple web site. Hopefully that will help...

Look up and do: Repair Permissions

Go to www.apple.com/downloads/
and download it manually:
