    Yes, I have the same problem.
    Could not get it to work on Mac os x 10.5.5.
    Trashed it and looked for other files named tuneup.
    Now every time I try to open itunes I get a message adking "Where is tuneup?"
    I don't think this was ready for prime time.
    Just another case of greed.

Hey, I'm not mac whiz, but the best way to remove the software from the computer is to type in the name of the program in the finder search bar, and physically drag it into the trash and empty it. I called mac support about it, and now they are trying to be better with the uninstall aspect of their new programs, but there are so many more programs for tune up that could be compatible with leopard on the main website. 
Also every once in a while, you should zero out your free space (which is similar to defragment) by going to the finder menu next to the apple on the top left part of the screen, selecting the services submenu and then disk utility. It dosent matter which one you chose under disk utility. When that window opens up, you click on your mac hd icon on the left and then choose erase from the options on the menu. (THIS WILL NOT ERASE YOUR EXISTING INFO) Select the top option (Zero Out Deleted Files) and this will place zeros which will take the fragments of files left on your mac off. I hope this was helpful and good luck!

How to unlock my apple ibook g4 laptop


You're going to need a bootable disk that came with the machine (or a version of the Mac OS that you know will run on it). You should do a complete custom install, including erasing the original disk.

I think you're going to need Leopard (Mac OS X 10.5) or earlier to get started. You can look for a disk on the internet, or see if you can get one from Apple (try the support forums at apple.com). A G4 is a PowerPC-based machine and isn't supported by the recent OS X versions, which require an Intel-based processor.

Try downloading the driver from the below link. With Snow Leopard, if a printer is plugged in and Snow Leopard doesn't already have the driver, it's supposed to download it via Software Update; however, this sometimes does not work well.

Macbook air is locked and i don't know how to reset it?


font.f1 {font: 12.0px Helvetica} Thanks for asking your question with Fixya Support. I will be glad to assist you.


If you are referring to locked in regards to your user administrator account, all you have to do is take your Mac OS X installation disc and run the Password Reset utility to reset your password and gain access back into your Macbook Air once again.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Here are some steps you can try to resolve the issue:

BOOT TO TIGER/LEOPARD or SNOW LEOAPRD DISK-
• Place your installation Disk (Tiger, Leopard or Snow Leopard) into your drive and
allow it to load.
• Restart your Mac
• As soon as you hear the Apple Chime, press the "C" key on your keyboard
and hold it.
• You will see a White Screen, Grey Apple first, do not release the C key until you
see a Spinning gear.
• Once you see that Spinning gear, release your C key and allow the disc to
continue loading

- RESETTING ADMINISTRATOR PASSWORD-
(Works for both Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) and Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard))

• When the booting to the Mac OS X disc is completed, you will now be in the
Installer environment
• Enter to next page, look up on upper left corner you should see "Installer" near
the Apple menu.
• Two spaces over you should see Utilities. Click Utilities>Reset Password.

• Select your user name from the drop down list and reset your password.

• When you are done, simply exit the Reset Password and Installer and reboot.

• At the Login window, enter your new password and you should be back into your home profile.

Let me know if this helps!

Thanks!

Regards,

Macbook wont run limewire


Depending which version of Limewire you have updated to, and what Mac you have the Mac OS may no longer support the Java it needs to run.
First try updating your mac to the most current version. If that doesn't help you, take lime wire and throw it in your trash.
Look for an older version of Limewire I know 4.18.8 works very well on older Macs.

you can find it here:
http://www.oldapps.com/limewire.php?old_limewire=5?download

this from lime wire:
LimeWire 5 requires Java version 1.6 to run. Both require Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard running on an Intel 64-bit processor. To find out what processor you are using, go to the Apple menu and select "About This Mac". LimeWire 5 will run on Core 2 Duo and Xeon processors, but it will not run on Core Duo or PowerPC processors because Apple has not released an updated Java version for older systems. More information is available on the Apple website:

I can't have safari


Its simple, just download it off the apple website,
http://www.apple.com/safari/download/
since you on leopard "1.5.2" you may need to run a system update because you should have been updated to 1.5.7 by now
so if safari still does not work that is why, you need to run a system update.
Here is a little guide on how to do that http://www.switchtoamac.com/guides/mac-os-x/software-update/manually-run-software-update-on-mac-os-x-leopard.html
One thing though if your new to mac's the apple menu is the apple icon in the top right corner :D

Cannot install OS X


When installing a system on the computer, you must have the original disks for the computer or a new OS X 10.5 Leopard if you meet the minimum specs.

Your Mac won't take a system higher than the one that came with it, unless it is a new 10.5 disk.

Mac tuneup software compatible?


The software you are running may not be compatable with leopard. Some programs that are older will only recognise the OSX10 Tiger operating system. I would uninstall the program and find a similar one that is compatable with Leopard.
