    1. WTF is the deal with safari? it seems like every other thread i click on I get the pinwheel of death, and it has crashed a fair share of times too

    2. I dl'd limewire for p2p. Was this stupid? is there still a spyware risk for macs?


    btw im on a pb, running tiger

    1. make sure you have all needed updates for safari, and running a permissions fix should help as well

    2. no, there are no spyware risks at all

    you should try aquisition also, that program is far greater than limewire by leeps and bounds in my opinion

    How would you go about fixing permissions?

    when in finder, use the go menu at the top, and click utilities. Find Disk Utility, run it.

    or... use spotlight to find disk utility.

    Click the drive you wish to repair premisions on, and click repair permissions.
