Hey guys, im fairly new to mac and still learning, but it seems everytime i update software from apple a brand new problem appears. whenever i am in safari pretty much everytime i open a page i get a "safari (flash player) plugin had to wuit unexpectedly" error, and then i have got alot of the "safari encountered an error and needs to close". I have tried running safari in 32 bit mode, repaired permissions, uninstalled flash and safari, updated all software that i can, and it is still happening. i am also getting constant errors of the same nature from Mac word and cannot use the program. my mac us only 4 months old, so im not entirely sure how to proceed. should i just make a new used account? because ive heard some mac word programs dont work in Admin accounts?? Also, on hardware issues, i got a kernel panic and booted from startup disc/ OSX disc to see if i could run the diagnostic test (or whatever it is, im not entirely sure of its specific name), and the program freezes, and i cannot run it at all. the only way i can exit that is to do a force restart. does this mean there is a major hardware issue? it is still under warranty, but my hard-drive has already been replaced because it was 'fried' after three days of use. i just want a smooth running computer, and i thought thats what a mac was. thanks guys.
