    It seems in the last few weeks (perhaps since the latest Itunes updates) that I am having some problems. Itunes won't even open, Mail quits unexpectedly, when the Mail doesn't quit - it will quit if an email contains a video, and Firefox will quit when attempting to go to some websites. I have an Emac, OS 10.3.9. I am not real computer literate... so any help in plain English would be great.
    Oh, one other thing... I did run Disk Utility repair permissions and here's the info: Repairing permissions for “eMac HD”
    Determining correct file permissions.
    We are using special permissions for the file or directory ./Library/ColorSync/Profiles/Displays. New permissions are 16893
    We are using special permissions for the file or directory ./Library/ColorSync/Profiles. New permissions are 16893
    We are using special permissions for the file or directory ./System/Library/Filesystems/cd9660.fs/cd9660.util. New permissions are 33261
    We are using a special uid for the file or directory ./private/var/at/jobs. New uid is 1
    We are using a special uid for the file or directory ./private/var/at/spool. New uid is 1
    The privileges have been verified or repaired on the selected volume

    Permissions repair complete

    Not sure what any of that means but thought that may help. Thanks.

    I saw this an was not sure what an Emac is. I went online and this is what wiki said.

    Here is my solution that I would do. I know people will tell you, do this, do that, but I say, if you want a permanent fix then go to the source. If the Specs on this Emac http://www.apple.com/support/ support the operating system then do a re-install of the operating system. This will restore it to factory and will fix all and any problems. If you want instructions on how to do this let me know.
