When Safari first opened the configuration was already correct so I clicked "Reset" and then shutdown the computer. Upon start up, I tried the "Option" key and then the COMMAND + R + OPT after the chime and after the all white screen continued for about 30 seconds with the dial showing in the middle of the screen my wallpaper just came up. I could never get to "Recovery HD".
Still no luck. As soon as I hear the chime (screen is still black), I have again tried both Command + R and Command + R + Option and then the screen goes white, the Apple logo come up, then the spinning dial below the logo comes on, about 45 seconds pass, then the screen goes all white, then seems to change again to another all white screen, then the colored spinning dial comes on at the upper left hand corner of the all white screen, another 30 seconds or so passes and then my wallpaper comes on.
I have Snow Leopard 10.6.3 that was installed with a disc.
John, I ran the file checker system and everything came back "OK" but my problem continues. Is there anything I can do to try and "clean up" the laptop?
What does it lost for? Not sure what you're saying on what I should do.

It seems better but issue still there so may just have to live with it.
Also, how do I close a web page but not the entire browser. Normally there is an "x" if multiple pages are open but if only one is open I don't see an "x" and have to close the entire browser rather than just the page to get back to my wallpaper page with all my icons.
