    Safari has not been able to load up at all for 1 week now. I have officially deleted it off my HD. I have downloaded a copy of version 3.1 off the Apple website, and still no luck! I think that the files in the users/library folder are busted. Please Help! I love Safari and not Firefox.

    You can use this App. to look for corrupt preference files.
    If it finds any, you can delete them.

    I'm not sure how to delete the files. Safari loads up with the help of this application but without it, it stalls like before. Heres is what I have found:

    Another recommendation is to use The Greatest Browser on the Planet. It's better than Firefox and Sashitty, and has many more features. If you don't like it, then I'm not sure :eek: Sorry.

    You can make it really easy for yourself by just doing an Archive and Install. This will save all of your settings and programs while installing a completely new System Folder and a fresh copy of Safari will be installed.

    Whatever this is and how it relates to Safari is the problem. Did you add any 3rd party software to Safari? If so, delete it. (add-ons / extensions)
    If using the application, that I linked you to, causes it to work, then it's somehow bypassing the problem.
    Use Spotlight to search for the "SQLITE" and delete it.

    I'm quite sure what to do here. I used Mac OS X Install Disc 1 and loaded up "Install Bundled Software Only." I talks about installing Applications but it will use 443MB of Disc Space. Is Archive and Install located in the "Install Mac OS X and Bundled Software" file?

    Archive and Install is an installation option. It create a new System folder and archive the old one. However, if the problem is in your home folder, it would not solve the problem.
    Mac OS X 10.4, 10.5: About installation options

    If you need specific programs, you can use Pacifist, with your install disk.
