    I used to have the RSS reader/screen saver but recently i noticed it doesn't work. When the screen saver is suppose to come on the screen turns black then fades back out to the desktop then it goes black again then fades out...ect

    Well I went too my preferences and I see that all my screen saver options are missing.

    After Im in the screen saver preferences tab for more then like 5 seconds the preferences menu closes all together and I get this error...

    Everything else works and so does the desktop options tab. Not sure what is causing this... I did not delete or making any changes to my OS other then the updates.

    Do you have the latest version of the Safari Dev Preview installed? It caused some problems with Quartz files. Just uninstall it and your screensavers should work.

    Well there you go. The first one didn't cause that problem, just the latest (second) seed.

    I uninstalled safari and still have the problem even after a restart of the computer. And now when I try to reinstall the regular Safari I get a message when I choose a target disk "This update requires Mac OS X 10.5.2 or newer" and I have 10.5.5

    Did you use the uninstaller or just drag it to the trash?

    I couldn't find a uninstaller so i figured i just had too drag it too the trash... I installed safari via the Leopard DVD and it works but it still wont update it too the newest version. And still have problems with the screen saver.

    you need to reinstall safari 4 via the installer and then uninstall it with the uninstaller which is also located in the .dmg file. You can't just drag it to the trash.
