You can talk me through the repair process. Safari broke suddenly. I have tried to replace it from a backup and was not allowed to. Probably a preference?

First, try downloading and installing High Sierra (macOS version 10.13) again

Download it via this link (which opens in App Store) --> https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201475

or go to Apple > App Store > Featured. Search High Sierra and install it from there.

If that didn't work and since the previous OS install process was interrupted, I'd recommend to reinstall the macOS. It is possible that other components are probably affected. So a reinstall will ensure all system files are OK and your Mac works ok (no need to do this step if you are able to install High Sierra)

You can reinstall your macOS by booting into macOS Utilities screen. This will not deleting anything, so it is safe to reinstall.

Restart your Mac and immediately hold down Command and R keys at the same time for 15 seconds and this will boot your Mac to the Mac OS Utilities screen. From there, click Reinstall mac OS. Then follow the instructions to reinstall your Mac OS.

If that didn't work,then restart your Mac and immediately hold down Command, Option and R keys at the same time for 15 seconds and this will boot your Mac to installation screen. Follow the onscreen instructions to reinstall.

Please let me know if that didn't work, so I will continue to help you until we fix the problem

Note : This is not my final answer. I strive to provide Excellent service or 5 star service. If you feel you've received anything less or if you are not satisfied or if my solutions didn't work, please don't rate me bad or poor or ok as it will badly affect my job here. Instead, please let me know and I will try my best to help you until you are fully satisfied or the issue is resolved.

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
