    Hi there
    Welcome to the mac world.
    I have ask for clarification but I think I know the problem.

    Apple do a pretty good job in setting the performance of their machines. If you have enough ram and a nice big hard drive you don't really need these types of software. You'd be better of upgrading your system (ram or hard drive)

    Your new mac is more than likely running on an intel processor. The first thing is the software you are trying to install compatible with that.

    What processes on the mac do you want to improve? There more than likely is a better built in way to achieve this.

I can not update my mac to 10.9


Hard to say without knowing exactly what Mac you have and what specs, but most likely reason would be your system doesn't meet the requirements (From Apple support site) - To install Mavericks, you need one of these Macs:
  • iMac (Mid-2007 or later)
  • MacBook (13-inch Aluminum, Late 2008), (13-inch, Early 2009 or later)
  • MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid-2009 or later),
  • MacBook Pro (15-inch or 17-inch, Mid/Late 2007 or later)
  • MacBook Air (Late 2008 or later)
  • Mac mini (Early 2009 or later)
  • Mac Pro (Early 2008 or later)
  • Xserve (Early 2009)
Your Mac also needs:
  • OS X Mountain Lion, Lion, or Snow Leopard v10.6.8 already installed
  • 2 GB or more of memory
  • 8 GB or more of available space

I am running OS X 10.4.11 and would like to upgrade my operating system?


Please provide more information.
To what would you like to upgrade it?

Since OSX Mavericks was just announced, I'm going to assume that's what you're wanting to upgrade to.

Not all Macs can run Mavericks.

Mavericks Capable Macs

Mavericks, like its predecessor Mountain Lion, requires one of the following Macs with at least 2 GB of RAM and 8 GB of available hard drive space:
  • iMac (Mid 2007 or newer)
  • MacBook (Late 2008 Aluminum, or Early 2009 or newer)
  • MacBook Air (Late 2008 or newer)
  • MacBook Pro (Mid/Late 2007 or newer)
  • Mac mini (Early 2009 or newer)
  • Mac Pro (Early 2008 or newer)
  • Xserve (Early 2009)

If your Mac isn't one of the ones listed above, you won't be able to upgrade.

If you have an iMac, MacBook, MacBook Pro, or Mac mini model that was originally released in Early/Mid 2006, the latest version of Mac OS X your system supports is Snow Leopard.

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.

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

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.

Software mac tuneup


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!
