Mac Tiger OS X Network window in Systems Preferences won't close

I can't exit from the error message "Your network settings have been changed by another application" -- when I close it it re-opens. This means I can't exit Network window in System Preferences.
I don't know what application it's talking about, and I can't even shut the computer down.

Setting password on OSX tiger


I taking it that you mean you want to change your password on a mac you have already logged onto. This is quite simple go to the apple menu which is located at the top left of the white menu bar, then go to system preferences and select network. Once network preference pane has come up click on the account called my account on the left hand side then on the right hand side there is a change password button, click on this and insert your Old password and then insert the new password in the New password box and then the new password in the Verify box. Then click the change password button on the bottom right. Hope this helps.

Sounds like you can't resolve the host name of the iPrism. There is a setting in the System Preferences in Mac OS. Under Network you can see the network connections if you have rights to change the settings click on your connection and click Advanced. On the DNS tab there is "Search Domains." Enter the domain of your Active Directory realm (Windows Domain, usually something like domain.local). If you do not have this your IT department can give it to you.

In iPhoto Preferences under the Accounts tab, make sure whichever mail account you use is the first one in the list.

Mac os x 10.4 tiger system preferences won't launch ? in place of icon in dock


Try this:

• Open a new Finder window and select Library from your Home Folder
• Select the Preferences folder.
• Locate and remove to the Trash,
com.apple.preferences.plist
• Now click on the back arrow in the upper left corner of your
window- this will take you back to the Library window.
• Now locate and remove the folder entitled "Caches"

-Close all windows and then click on the blue Apple menu icon and select from the drop down menu, Logout<username>.

• this will take you to the main login window. Simply log back in and before you attempt to launch System Preferences, run Disk Utility first:

font.f1 {font: 13.0px Myriad Pro} -RUN DISK UTILITY FIRST-

Go to Finder Menu bar
• Click Go > Utilities > Disk Utility and open up Disk Utility app.
• Click on Macintosh HD volume (or on the name you have changed
this volume to.)
• Select "Repair Disk Permissions"
**Let Disk Utilities run this repair permissions until completion
(This is not often a necessary step, but in the many of the hands-on software and Mac OS X troubleshooting I have done on Macs, I almost always run it just because it does repair alot of the permissions on files which can sometimes affect how certain applications, files and folders work. It also improves your Mac's performance a bit too:)

Once Disk Utility is complete and there are no errors in red in the completion summary (if there are errors listed in red, re-run DU to see if those error will clear- if they don't reply back to this post right away and let me know what the exact error message is), quit Disk Utility.

• Relaunch System Preferences.

Let me know if this helps resolve the issue.
