I have noticed that my MacBook Pro has been running a little slower than normal since this last update. Also iWeb won't open at all. All I get is the spinning beach ball. This also happens on my wife's MacBook, although her computer does not appear to be running slower. Anyone else experiencing similar problems, or have a solution???

Thanks.

PS - I have repaired permissions on both computers, but really don't know what to do beyond that.

No problems here, but I followed the recommended procedure of rebooting in safe mode before running the update.
Also, I downloaded the combo update and not the delta, neither did I use Software Update, which is recommended as best practice by some Mac techies.

I cannot reproduce the Adobe CS3 bug either, but I'm not complaining.

You can try reinstalling the update, I would suggest you follow the same procedure as I did.

Hope it works.

Also remember you need to keep approx. 10% of your hard drive free. It is possible the update has taken up more HD space than expected. Also try to find a utility to empty your caches, e.g. Onyx, and run that.

I downloaded the combo update and reinstalled it. All is working well now. Thanks.
