iMac programs keep crashing
by hgjy - 10/7/12 2:29 AM
For the last few days my iMac (running version 10.5.8) hasn't been working properly, particularly the internet browsers. Every time I try to use Firefox, it crashes within 30 seconds or so and comes up with a crash reporter. The same happens when I try to use Safari, although Safari seems to last quite a bit longer before crashing. Other programs like Microsoft Word for Mac have also been crashing around every hour or two which is unusual.
I'm pretty clueless when it comes to computers so I'm not really sure what to do. Does anyone have any ideas of what could be wrong and what I could do? All of the software is up to date and I tried a Flashback removal program which says that I don't have any Flashback malware. I've had my computer since the start of 2009 so do you think it might just be a bit old?
Thanks in advance for any help
