I could use some help with this. Ever since installing Panther (easy install) on my G4 800 iMac some months back, my system has been slow and I noted I was always working on the same errors in repair permissions. Got a new FW HD and used CCC to clone my HD. Planned on doing an archive and install, but archive process would repeatedly hang up at 13% and shut down. So, did erase and install, and things went smoothly, including software update downloading and installing multiple updates including 10.3.4. Now, when I start Mail or Safari they start to load and "suddenly quit". All the other apps seem to work fine. I'm on a home wireless network and can use IE on the net without problems, and my other macs (one with 10.3.3 and one 10.2.8) on the same network still work fine. Only other weird thing is when I startup Virex gives me an error msg: "Virex cannot connect to the internet....it requires an internet connection...." But it I click on eUpdate it downloads updates or notes they're uptodate. I've repaired permissions, added a second admin acct., removed font folder and even preferences folder to the desktop, but none of these have worked. Anyone got some good suggestions? Thanks.
