    Whenever I run this application to check for updates, it just bounces in the dock and disappears. Then I get this error box that says "The application Software Update quit unexpectedly". It then gives me 3 options to "ignore, report, and relaunch".

    Any ideas on how to fix this or a work around?

    Which Mac OS version is this?

    Try repairing permissions in disk utility

    A work around is AppFresh :)

    Sorry if I posted this in the wrong section. I just noticed the "Mac OS X" sections. Feel free to move.

    Thanks for the fast reply:

    I tried repairing the disk permissions and received the following error message:

    Error: The underlying task reported failure on exit

    Got the same error message when verifying the disk permissions. The verify disk option also failed.

    Any other ideas?

    Oh, and I'm running Leopard.
