Hi and Welcome. My Name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you today with your question.

In Finder, click on Go menu and select Computer. Open Macintosh HD. Open Library folder. You will find a folder named Updates in there. You will see several folders and files in there. Open all folders and check for a file starting with Safari

It is a package file. Open it and follow the onscreen instructions to install it. That should update Safari.

Then click on Apple menu > App Store. In App Store, click on Updates tab and do all software updates in there.

Please let me know if that didn't work, so we can continue troublehsooting.

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
