    It was updating and it stopped progressing. I tried stopping it, but that didn't work. Then I tried quitting, that didn't work either. What should I do, restart?

    Not cool. :(

    Were you running other apps at the same time? I guess I'd try a restart and see how things go. Half finished updates are terribly uncool. :eek:

    Yeah, I'm guessing it was the iTunes and iPhoto updates too. I'm not so worried about them because they're easily fixed but hopefully this unfinished security update won't be a problem. Do you know how far along it got?

    Maybe try a manual security update reinstall.

    Intel version
    PPC version

    :)

    Hey thanks guys. I think I know what caused the problem. iTunes update was right after, and I guess the little message that usually says "you need to quit iTunes before updating" didn't show up. So when I went to restart, I quit iTunes, and then the update started again. :rolleyes: Phew... I thought somethin was wrong.
