    this last update when checking last Wed. for 10.5.8 was only 165 mgs. I checked on the Apple update page and it showed two hundred and something mgs. Well, tonight I downloaded a video from and along with it it downloaded MacOs update 10.5.8. O.K. no problem. So I tried closing safari and it asked do you really want to quit the download. Huh? I thought if it was a true update download it wouldn't matter if safari was running or not. Is something going on here??:confused:

    Are you downloading the delta/combo through Safari or Software Update? If the latter, then you're correct - Safari isn't needed.

    If Safari said that there was something downloading, there was something downloading, not related to 10.5.8. Check the Downloads window under "Window" in the Safari menu.

    If you are sure nothing was downloading, I recommend reinstalling Safari and making sure it and all plug-ins are up to date.

    Not sure what the delta/combo is.

    this is what the file I canceled it thinking it was malicious. Malicious because I just updated last week. Was the 10.5.8 165mg download last week a fake? My update says I'm all up to date.
