Screen Refreshes Every 15-30 Seconds Without Being Asked To

If I'm copying a folder from another hardrive, server or memory stix nothing copies over because it closes up the folder when it 'refreshes' before the transfer is completed. Needless to say it makes transferring files more than a bit difficult.
Software documents will remain open...i.e. Quark. Computer does not 'crash' or need a restart. 

I recently updated Quicktime, Jave & a Security Update. Have had problems ever since. 
Any ideas?

Sounds like, first off, go to Apple, download those updates from there (not thru Software Update) and reapply them -- and have no other apps running while you do, and don't do anything on computer while install is going on.
Then repair permissions after (machine will restart once or twice.) Wouldn't hurt to reset PRAM as well. 
Security Updates are notorious this way!
Good luck.

Transferring pictures from a Mac Computer to a memory stick


Hi Robin, It depends where the pictures are - but nevertheless, it's easy. If tyhe pictures are in iPhoto (which iswhere I would expect them to be). the just open iPhoto, select the pictures you want (either individually or by shift or alt-clicking to select several) and then just drag them to the icon of your memory stick on the desktop. If you have modified any picture in iPhoto then the modfied version will be copied - not the unmodifies original. If your pictyures are not in iPhoto but in a folder somewhere, then just drag them from the folder to the memory stick - simple as that.
Not really any different from windows.

How can i find ms word on my computer


Thank you for contacting Fixya Support, I will be glad to assist.

In order to find Microsoft Word on your Mac notebook, you have to first know if you purchased a copy of Microsoft Office for Mac 2004 or 2008. If you have purchased either of these versions, then you just need to click on the Finder icon at the bottom left corner of the Dock to open up a new Finder window and then select the Applications folder and look for a Microsoft Office folder.

If you see that folder then you just need to open it and click on the Word icon within that folder.

If you do not locate such a folder, then chances are you may need to either reinstall the copy you have of Microsoft Office for Mac or purchase a copy of the software if you don't recall ever having purchased a copy of the software.

Microsoft Office for Mac is a 3rd party software that does not come fully installed on Macs except for a Trial version which will only remain active for 30 days unless the full version is purchased.

You can use finder, but I would try Spotlight. Basically click the magnifying glass in the upper right part of your screen and search the name of the file. It will list all documents and programs that have that name. then open the containing folder and cut and paste to stick.

When I start my macbook a blue screen appears with a folder with a ? mark in it flashing


That message means that it can't find the start up folder and or your hard drive has crashed.

If you insert your OS disk or a copy of Disk Warrior you can boot to the cd / dvd by holding down the "C" key and then powering up the Macbook.

Let me know if you have that OS cd and then we'll go from there.
