    My Mac is driving me crazy. It seems ever since I updated to 10.5.7 things have gotten worse. They seemed fine for a bit but now a few things are driving me crazy my system over all seem to not work like it once did.

    -When I use to change my desktop background it would change on both the 9600 and the 9400, now I have two separate backgrounds. What’s the deal with this?

    -My ichat logs on and off about 15 times in 5 seconds, when I open up my laptop then says I’ve tired to log in too many times and I can’t get on for an hour.

    -I get this message all the time now


    never use to get it before and it drives me insane, sometimes it does it 10 times in a row so I’m knocked offline for about 10 minutes.

    -If I ever delete any pictures on my desktop id click on them and hit command + delete to send them to the trash. However now if I click on them finder will not be selected, no matter what I do, even if I close all other programs! The ONLY way I can select finder is by clicking on it on my dock.

    A restart using fixes my finder issue, but any ideas on the other things??

    Have you tried an Archive and Install? Probably not.
    It'll fix your problems, though. :)
    Unless it's a hardware issue, in which case, you'll have to take it to a Genius Bar.

    I did have the same issue before with ichat... i dont remember what i did to solve it but i think i had to sign in with a different AIM name, then sign back in with my normal name, i believe this fixed it..
