    Almost nothing seems to be working! Youtube videos only show up as black boxes, games like on MiniClip and ArmorGames don't show up, picture editing sites such as Picnik don't work and almost all my programs "quit unexpectedly"! HELP!! Some of the applications that don't work are: iTunes, Pages, Skype, Microsoft Messenger, aMSN and iPhoto. It's a real pain... what can I do?! I tried clearing my caches already, and reloading sites doesn't work. I need help ASAP!

    Yipes!

    What type of iMac
    What version of MacOS?
    What memory configuration?
    Did you add any third party memory?
    Have you tried reinstalling flash (fix for black boxes)?
    Have you tried repairing permissions (run disk utility in utilities, select drive, repair permissions)?

    Extra Info

    Type: Mac Osx, Snow Leopard
    Version: 10.6.8
    Capacity: 249.72 GB

    We have had a hard drive called Lacie for quite a while now (it can hold up to 1TG of extra memory), so I highly doubt that's the reason. But recently we updated Adobe Flash Player. Might that be the problem?

    And also, we have had this Mac since October 2, 2008.

    Sounds like bad RAM to me. If it's under warranty, take it in.
