    im on Mbp Late 2011

    osx 10.11.4

    16gb ram

    i wont go into all the problems I've been having so I'll keep it short -

    EVerytime I click safari, it opens for a few seconds then quits. After doing it about 4 times I get the spinning wheel and the system starts to freeze up.

    HOw am I meant to get around this?

    iI've managed to get it open long enough to turn off automatic safari suggestions but still the same.

    ive reset the pram and smc (when I did this I couldn't get my OS back so had to fresh reinstall El Capitan - still the same problem.

    I Can't even get safari open long enough to put google chrome on (although I've seen people say google chrome still crashes)

    any ideas anyone?

    Try the following:

    1. In Finder, press shift-command-G, enter "~/Library/Safari", and then press return.
    2. Select all of the items except for the file Bookmarks.plist.
    3. Press command-delete.
