    Quick question. I am unable to open "Console". Each time I try I get the spinning beach ball and when I go to force quit it shows: Console (not responding).

    My question.
    Can I reinstall just the console program? If yes, How? I tried in the Leopard disk but couldn't find anything.

    Any other suggestions will be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Steve

    Same problem

    I cannot access Console either, using 10.5.6 on an intel core 2 duo imac. Beach ball pervades. I wanted to check the detail from ClamXav but can only see what pops up initially, no major error messages listed. Has anyone else come across this?

    Launch terminal and tail your /var/log/system.log right after you try to run Console and see if it says why its not running/crashing...

    thank you

    Interesting, as I pulled up terminal and followed your suggestion, console unfroze and I got the following where LCC is the logitech control center I have installed for my keyboard and mouse. I just uninstalled and reinstalled it yesterday too as the USB device was somehow the culprit behind my computer not being able to awake from sleep and firewire devices were no longer being recognized. Its being rather problematic. I would leave it uninstalled if it weren't for the button functionality I would lose on my mouse.
