    Safari locks up and takes the whole system with it.

    Photochop™ displays spinning beachballs and progress bars.

    System sounds play through built-in speaker and the rest of the lot through the Soundsticks.

    Repaired permissions, ran all periodic scripts, optimized volume, ran hardware disc (no problems). Still the same issues.

    Any ideas before I take on the day-long task of rebuilding my system?

    Have you tried restarting? :eek:
    Just kidding!

    You zapped the pram, etc?

    Yeah, I'd probably start over... couldn't hurt, just is a pain.
    Less so if you have a firewire drive to copy off to though.

    Good luck.

    Is it across all accounts? If not, could you just transfer all your settings to another account? Although, a complete reinstall would probably be just as easy/hard. :eek:
