    Hey!
    I am trying to do a software update on my G5 Mac, but when it says 'checking for new software', the bar nearly reaches the end, but then appears to freeze! Anyone else had similar problems? How do I fix this?

    Verify your internet connection is ok, Restart the machine then try it. It Usually stalls on me when i have no internet, or a very slow wireless connection.

    If need be you can go to the APPLE DOWNLOAD PAGE and find your OS Update there as a stand alone update and run it that way.

    And if that gets nowhere, then drag a file named com.apple.SoftwareUpdate.plist to the Desktop and restart. :)
