    Ok, my sister just called me with a slight panic. She said that she was doing Software Update, and during the Update, her computer froze, so she was forced to just power it off. When she turned it back on, the programs that were running at the time, Safari, Limewire and the Software Update won't open. She said that they icons bounce on the dock a couple of times, then just stop. I gave her some suggestions like zapping the PRAM, Repairing Permissions, and we were going to try to Rebuild the Desktop too, but it wouldn't do anything. Also, her iPod won't show up on the Desktop or in iTunes now for some reason. It will charge, but it won't mount.

    Any Suggestions?!

    Maybe try uninstalling then reinstalling Safari and Limewire, don't know what to say about Software Update.

    that is why when I run software update, nothing else is running in the background.

    in that position, I would do a full backup + clean install.

    who knows how many lower level processes may have been altered by the crash.
