Question about Apple Mac OS 9.2.1

1 Answer

Registry problem? I had a notice that one of my files is corrupt. My MacBook using Safari shuts me off of the web, just keeps losing access. Someone told me to get a registry clean up. I am a 72 yr. old lady who doesn't know anything about what registry's are but I can follow directions. Any help would be appreciated.When I bought this computer I was so confused with all the requests for passwords for everthing that I just gave up and am able to get on line without them. However, since I have corrupted files, decided I best try and get passwords straightened out. I went to utilities and set up a master password that is encrypted and secured by file vault. The next thing to happen was Safari asked for a password.....I gave it the new master password and was told it was wrong.....!! What!! I am ready to toss this computer in the trash. I hate all these damn password requests as I am the only person using it, I really need some help. I make the best double chocolate brownies anywhere and will happily send some to whom ever can help me. Grammy, Gayle Grammy Gayle

Someone is use to using Windows, not a Mac. As far as I know, Windows is the only operating system that does use a registry so no, you do not have a problem with your registry.

As for Safari, you can try this
Safari keeps asking for keychain password

To fix the file corruption, do this

Brownies sound great but you are probably too far away.

Unfortunately the firemware is burned onto the logicboard. You will have to return it and hope your applecare warranty is still active.

SOURCE: I forgot my Administrator Password

Basically you need to insert the first restore disc and restart your computer, when you hear the sound of it booting up press the C key and hold it down till you see the apple symbol, it may take awhile for it to start up don't worry. When the first window pops up, select english. Then the next window will pop up and then don't do anything with that window, but at the top of the finder click utilities tab and then password reset. Select the account that you want to change and enter the blanks then click the save button. After doing so the blanks should be blank again, now at the top of the finder click the password tab and click quit. Once you have done that at the top tabs again you should see an installer one, click that and select quit. Then restart. Thanks!

SOURCE: is there an equivalent program on apple like regedit?

Apple has files that contain the same type of info as the windows registry .

They are referred to as .plist files.

Example:

/Users/YourUserName/Library/Preferences

There is not a typical registry.

Help, I have MacBook Air and it won't install new require Flash version....it keeps telling me I need to quite safari but I don't have safari open...hours and hours of wasted time.


Camille,

Although you might not have Safari open where you can see it it might still be running as a process. Open Activity Monitor and select Memory, scroll down the list of items using memory and see if you see anything related to Safari still active in memory. If you find something, double click on it and another window comes up with information about the process. Select at the bottom quit. There are two options to quit first is quit second is force quit. If quit alone does not remove the process then you will have to force quit the process. A word of warning although this is an easy way to quit processes that are not responding, or not closing be careful some processes are system processes and if shut down forcibly can cause the system to lock or crash. I have not heard of any damaging effects from this besides data lose in apps that were open but always be careful.

My safari crashes on my laptop after about 10 seconds. I've tried several times. I've also tried to download again. I have a Macbook Pro, OS version 10.5.8, Processor 2.4 GHz, Intel Core 2 Duo,...


The first thing you should try is resetting the PRAM, this can be done by following this guide.

Then use the Finder to view your User/Library/Cookies/ folder, and drag the Cookies.plist file to the trash. now try Safari again.

If that cures the problem, then we know the cookies file was the reason.

Unfortunately you may lose various website settings and passwords, that were stored in the cookies.

If the problem still persists after this I would try calling apple support.

Unable to obtain web sites on first attempt. Servers are not found on initial attempt. Slow in accessing web sites - using Safari


Please provide more details since the problem is not clear. It's possible the wireless connection you're connecting to is not very strong.

I can open internet explorer, but my weather and skype programs are working normal, I know I have a god connection, also when I try to access the internet options to change my browser it just blinks then...


As of December 31, 2005, Microsoft no longer provided support for Internet Explorer for Mac.

As a result, Microsoft recommended all users of IE for Mac, use either Safari, or any other 3rd party, Mac compatible browser. Here are 3 of the more popular made for Mac browsers, widely used with Macs as well as Safari 4.0:
  • Firefox for Mac v3.6
  • Camino for Mac v2.0.1
  • Opera for Mac v10.10
All of these browsers are free downloads and are easy to via Google or any other web search engine you like to use.

Because you should have Safari built in, I would recommend you access that web browser, by going into Finder > Applications> Safari and launching that web browser.

This should enable you to continue surfing online, despite the IE setback.

Let me know if this data is helpful to you.

Thanks!
