    I'm really starting to get pissed off with my mac! Not too long ago when I was in Google Chrome it kept freezing like crazy! It froze up my whole system to were I had to do a hard restart! So I figured it was my internet. The next day I switched to safari.. Had the same problem.. Switched to Firefox, and guess what.. Had the same problem but with Firefox it only freezes when I am on YouTube's homepage! I don't get it! Please help! :mad:

    Specs -
    Chipset Model:NVIDIA GeForce 9400

    iMac 24 inch

    Additional Details -
    I do believe this problem started after downloading K9 blue coat
    internet security.

    PS. I'm lucky I was able to upload this without my computer freezing :p

    Does it only lock up when browsers are open?

    If so, remove K9 blue coat and try browsing again.

    If the lockups go away, you've found the cause.

    I would try removing the software and see if that works. If it doesn't, you can call Apple up, or backup your files and Apps, and do a fresh install of the OS. I've done this about 3 times on my Macbook Pro within the last year because it frees up space, gets rid of problems, and it feels like you just purchased a new machine (for about an hour or two) :D

    thanks! but..

    This may sound weird but when I got blue coat I typed in a random password and deleted the password file because I was afraid I would get temped into porn as I got older lol :p Should I just call blue coat and ask for it to be deleted?
