Ever since I upgraded to OS 10.4.6 I find programs are crashing in the middle of use! Safari just crashed a minute ago. Accordance crashed two nights ago when updating a user tool. Something else crashed three days ago (I downloaded the update Monday). Has anyone else experienced similar problems with 10.4.6? I have never had ANYTHING (except a trial version of MS Word) crash on my iBook before this update...

Just to increase the size of your statistical pool, I can echo Helen here. I had some funky stuff going on in 10.4.4-5, especially in Safari, but things have stabilized quite nicely since then. (I'm running on a MacBook Pro.)

Have you repaired permissions and done all of the usual "good housekeeping" stuff?

I'd also check any third party preference panes and/or hardware drivers.

I apologize for my ignorance, but how do I reset permissions and do other "good housekeeping" stuff? I can fix problems like this in Windows because, frankly, if you can't fix these kinds of things there, you might as well trash your computer. But I've never had to do any maintenance on my Mac before...iBook G4 1.33 GHz if that helps any... Thanks!

I, too, have had no OS related problems with Accordance (crashes or other). But to more properly help Robb (and others, too):

Open the program "Disk Utility" to repair permissions. It's located in your "Utilities" folder within the "Applications" folder of your computer's main hard drive (probably named "Macintosh HD" and located on your desktop).

Once "Disk Utility" is opened and running you can choose your "Macintosh HD" from the left panel and then click the button to "Repair Disk Permissions" in the main panel.

If you need further help you can email me personally and I'll walk you through any further steps.

The May issue of MacWorld has an extensive article on maintance/repair strategies for Macs. I don't know if it's out on newstands yet; as a subscriber, I get it earlier than the newstands do. If you can get your hands on a copy, it should provide you with some help. (And it looks to be a good thing to keep close by for other potential problems).

I ran the disk utility and the disk permissions were a mess! I'm still new to the Mac, so I wasn't aware of the need to do that after an upgrade, but thank you for the tip. Things seem to be moving a little more quickly now than before (I restarted after I repaired the permissions), and so far no more crashes. Hopefully this will fix the problem. Thanks again!

A few links that may be worth reading:

A January 2005 Rob Griffiths column at Macworld. He edits the very useful if sometimes overly technical site http://www.macosxhints.com/.

A March 2006 Dan Frakes column for Macworld, which reviews a bunch of "tweaking" utilities and offers some capsule recommendations.
