Hi all,

I have a 20" intel iMac. Everything was super fast and nice since I bought it last February.

I recently "software updated" to 10.4.8 and since then it seems slower, groggy, and Safari crashes regularly.

Is this a known issue or is it just me? Is there anyway to uninstall 10.4.8? Or, can anyone recommend a utility to help diagnose the problem?

Thanks -- how do I "repair permissions"?

4. Reset Safari
5. Tell us if any of those do the trick.

I repaired permissions, it did tonnes of stuff -- mostly related to the flash plugin by the look of the output. :-?

I'll try it for a couple days and see if things are back to normal before trying anything further.

By the way, what do you mean "reset safari"?

I backed up all my data and reformatted the drive so I could reinstall OS X and update everything except the 10.4.8. I am currently using 10.4.4, stable as hell.
