My friend bought a Mac OS X in January 2004. Two years ago, she upgraded to Leopard. Her Mac performed OK, although it froze now and then.
Then today, she did a Software Update. She clicked upgrade, it launched, and restarted her computer. Then at around 38% done, it froze. After waiting a few minutes, she force quit and since then, her computer crashes every 20 minutes or so.
Whenever she clicks to check for software updates, she sees this error:
"The application Software Update quite unexpectedly. Max OS X and other applications are not affected. Click Relaunch to launch the application again. Click Report to see more details or send a report to Appple."
Here are her technical specs:
Mac OS X Version 10.5.7 Processor 1.8 GHZ Power PC G5 Memory: 512 MB DDR SDRAM
Model Name: iMac G5 Model Identifier: PowerMac8,1 Processor Name: PowerPC G5 (3.0) Processor Speed: 1.8 GHz Number Of CPUs: 1 L2 Cache (per CPU): 512 KB Memory: 512 MB Bus Speed: 600 MHz Boot ROM Version: 5.2.2f4
Anyone know how to reverse a failed Software Update for OS X?
