    I just got done reformatting my laptop and am in the leeeeeeeeengthy process of installing all the updates (I have Tiger)....

    Well Software Update is claiming there are no more updates available to me. But this is not true. Thats not true I have Safari 3.04!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    How do I make this thing realize there is updates to give me!

    Go directly to Safari's page in Apple.com and download it directly. Also, I think Safari 4 requires Mac OS X Leopard or Snow Leopard (I can be wrong with this one)

    I know sometimes that if Apple applications are removed from /Applications, the updates may not be registered/identified correctly. Safari.app is in /Applications, right? It also hasn't been renamed in Finder? As jav6454 recommended, try downloading the update manually @ www.apple.com/safari/download. You do need to have 10.4.11 and Security Update 2009-003 or later installed. Security Update 2009-005 was released just yesterday.

    Thanks for the tip. No I've not changed the name of safari or anything.....


    My concern is Safari is something I can tell it hasn't downloaded. Nor has it downloaded the new ITunes, and porbably several security updates. I am wanting to know if their is a way to "reboot" software update

    It seems to not realize it hasn't provided me everything

    Safari 4 is compatible with Tiger.
