    So as the title points out, the only two applications I can run on my mac are firefox and iChat. All my games, iTunes, other iLife/work programs and creative softer gets the same message after being opened for roughly 7 seconds.

    The application ___________(insert application name here) quit unexpectedly.

    Mac OS X and other applications are not affected.

    Click Relaunch to launch the application again. Click Report to see more details or send a report to Apple.

    It will not let me send the report to apple either. I should mention that I downloaded the newest updates for OS X 10.5 the night before this started happening. This only began to happen after I restarted and installed the updates.

    Would anybody be so kind as to enlighten me on how to fix this problem. I would very much appreciate it.

    something is obviously funky with your system. i dont think theres much to do than a reinstall. you could try repairing permissions or running the Automation feature in Onyx.
