    The Apple update downloaded on December 21, 2007 has resulted in my iBook G4 not being able to load Safari. Is anyone else having this problem? Is there a solution? Please help.

    If you create a new user account in System Preferences, can you load Safari from there?

    New Account Can't Access Safari Either

    Tried that. Still "no go." Tried deleting all plug-ins. that didn't work either. Should I try to re-install OS X?

    What operating system are you running? You may just need to reinstall the latest combo update.

    PYR0M310N, I re-installed last night. Took about one hour & fifteen minutes but now everything works correctly. Too bad you can't just re-install components (Safari).

    I'm glad you got it working. In future, remember that you can reinstall components of the OS using your restore disc and Pacifist. :)
