Ok, a while ago I reported here that the program BeachBall had 'failed to install' and left me with some rather strange GUI nusances. Now the problem has escalated. I recently had my cursor just STOP, the time was ticking, but my whole keyboard simply cease to function (the light on my optical mouse even went out), and soon the clock and menu-bar items were gone, but the computer was still going. I believe the problem exists with the CoreGraphics file that was 'replaced' by BeachBall. Anyhow, the new symptoms are: -More crashing than I have EVER had before on OS X, which still isn't that much (OS 9 is a different story ), but I am afraid to do anything of importance -The screen that comes up when you start up that say 'Welcome to Macintosh' is now gone, replaced with the simple blue background, but the computer still starts up This: I am wondering what to do, I was thinking I could install Jaguar onto another one of my drives, then simple replace the folder on this drive with the folder that contains CoreGraphics on that, being that I am 95% sure that my CoreGraphics file is corrupted. But just in case, I have ALOT of programs on my computer, Im wondering, would I simply be able to my Applications folder onto another drive? Or change my start up disk so I am running off another drive, but utilizing the applications on another? My idea is that I want to do as little of a 'clean' install as possible. Thanks for all the help!
