    Whenever I use the APPLE+TAB option to switch between open apps it looks exactly like this! :( Does anyone know why?

    Also, lately, my computer freezes up totally almost daily for no reason, i will just be doing my normal thing, open a jpg and at first you get the spinning pinwheel, and no apps, not even force quit respond, then the mouse freezes up totally so you can't click a thing, and I have to cut the power in order to get my lappy to turn off.

    Does anyone know why this looks the way it does? :confused:

    Thanks guys! (and gals)

    1) Have you performed a full hardware test recently with the CD that came your Mac?

    2) Have you repaired file permissions lately?

    3) Did you check your logs from anything prior to the crash?

    4) Have you installed/upgraded/modified anything recently that may have started this problem?

    You should probably give a few more technical details and what you have already done. It will greatly help people give you ideas to try...

    What computer are you running this on? And have you messed with the system fonts at all?

    nothing major.. .but it could be some smaller tweak or small update that is causing it.

    I also notice tons of folders on your desktop...I don't know about OSx but this often caused major problems with OS9 and before. At my school we always had more problems with macs that had tons of things saved to the desktop. Just an idea. any software (apple) updates recently?

    Just some security update from ages ago that i didn't bother downloading until very recently, but that probably wouldn't effect anything.

    Has anyone else had this happen to them, with the APPLE+TAB and constant crashing? I would hate to have to do full OS restore and lose everything!
