    I did a round about way of backing up my info today on my iMac.

    Decided to zap Safari with AppZapper, and stupidly forgot to install a backup browser.

    Got on my windows comp, downloaded Safari 3 beta, brought to make on thumb drive, and this is what occurs;

    Pacifist worked perfectly.

    Thank you very much.



    Seems kind of stupid that trying to install windows in boot camp caused this many problems.
