    I have a Macbook using Mac OS X 10.4.8

    Sometimes when programs freeze i force quit and the window of the program leaves the screen but the program itself doesn't quit. When i try to open it, no windows show up and it doesn't appear on the top menu bar. When i try to force quit it again, it shows up there but when i force quit the program still won't quit !!

    This has happened to Finder, Safari, Microsoft Office, and iChat.
    Can someone help me please ?

    I suppose you have repaired permission, updated prebindings and ran maintenance scripts?

    Would he know how to do that? I don't! How do you go about doing this, and is it something that should be regularly done to prevent future issues?

    Try restarting the machine. Run Disk Utility which is in the Applications folder > Utilities folder. If Verify Disk finds a problem you will have to start your computer from the disk that came with your machine (insert that disk, and restart while holding down the C key). Rerun Disk Utility using the Repair Disk option. I hope this helps.
