    Hey i have a ibook g4 purchased in oct. of 05'. and have never had a problem with it until last night. it started off with safari not responding so i powered down, ( did this a few times) but to no avail. i just tried to turn it on agian this morning,(the computer not safari) and i get to the login screen, but after i eneter the password i just get the background with the spotlight icon in the top right corner i move the cursour over itand get the spinning beach ball and thats as far as i get. ANY ideas as to what it could be? I did install cs4 prior to these complication,( i had to move the clock back to june of 08' in order for cs to work) but it worked for a few hrs after, also i downloaded a few dozen fonts. any help is appreacaited.
    thanks.
