    I have a Late '09 Mac Mini running OS 10.6.8. When I go to 'Software Update' and attempt an install it doesn't work.

    I do the install and restart the computer and it just freezes.

    I installed the Mac OS X 10.6.8 Update Combo v1.1 from Apples site and it didn't solve this issue.

    Any help or advice will be appreciated.

    How much free space is left on your HDD.
    Also you might want to try this…

    Click the Finder icon in the Dock.

    From the Go menu choose “Go to Folder”.

    Type: /Library/Updates

    Click Go. The /Library/Updates folder opens.

    Select all contents of this folder and move them to the Trash.

    Once the above steps are complete, use Software Update again to re-download and install the update.
