    I completed some updates about 4 weeks ago for my macbook pro but instead of restarting the computer, I turned it off. Now I can't access my network settings. The message I get is "Your network settings have been changed by another application". I have to Force-Quit just to close System Preferences once that message appears. This has affected my iTunes, Chat and internet connection. Can anyone help????

    Did you install a 3G card? thats what happend to me , but in Tiger Only!

    way to go around this is simple:


    System settings: Security and then choose something like "always ask for password when changing system settings" , i have leopard right now so its different!

    Than you just go into network settings open the lock on the bottom left and type in your password! :cool:
