    Hi, well lately my iTunes has just not been working, everytime I start it up and try to play a song I get a spinning ball and I have to force quit. I don't know why this keeps happening I'm on a iMac G5 which is old but not that old.

    Also, when I go on safari my connection drops out and I'm on ethernet! It just stops so I'm forced to use Firefox.

    I dunno if anyone can help but any would be much appreciated.

    How long is it since you last did OS maintenance? From what you post, there appears to be a Permissions problem and/or some serious cluttering of the browser caches. I recommend OnyX as the best OS maintenance application around. It's free, and available from Titanium Software.

    It's been a good couple months since I have done any maintenance so I'm gonna use OnyX tonight and hopefully it will help. Thanks by the way.
