Is Safari and iTunes still on your computer?

Go to the Finder and open the Applications folder. Are Safari and iTunes still there?

Reply to RoeIncarnate's Post: Yes they are.
In fact when I log on Itunes appears in my Dock bounces a few times then explodes like a cloud.
Safari will bounce in my dock and nothing happens.
Quicktimes is fine.Iphoto is fine.

I hope you can help me
Mac Support Specialist: RoeIncarnate, Mac Software Engineer replied 9 years ago
First thing to try is "Repair Permissions".

Open "Disk Utility" (/Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility).

Click on your hard drive on the left and then click the "Repair Disk Permissions" button.

When you try to start iTunes, is there anything added to the console.

Open the Console application (/Applications/Utilities/Console).

Then use the File menu to open both the Console log and System log. Then clear both with the menu "View -> Clear Display".

Then try to start iTunes. Any messages added to the logs?

Looks like maybe LimeWire deleted or changed one of the System libraries (it should not do that, but...)


I would try running System Update from the Apple menu to see if that downloads a new iTunes that will fix it.

Software update crashes as well can't open it.

Umm you are very helpful even though my system is not working should I start a new thread so you can get paid? And then continue trying to fix it?
Mac Support Specialist: RoeIncarnate, Mac Software Engineer replied 9 years ago
No don't worry about the payment yet.


Which version of OS X are you running? 10.3, 10.4, 10.5?

I'm going to have try running the combo update again. It will often fix these kinds of problems.
Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 9 years ago
10.4.11

Combo update?
Mac Support Specialist: RoeIncarnate, Mac Software Engineer replied 9 years ago

Looks like you are in a bit of a catch 22. Can't fix it cause you can't run the fixer without it.

Did you have any plans to upgrade to 10.5? If so, now might be a good time.

All I can suggest now is to reinstall or upgrade to 10.5 (you have to buy it). Or maybe contact Apple.

Sorry I can't be more help.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
