    Commonly when I am online the screen goes grey over the page stating that I must hold down power button to force quit. It is most irritating! The computer is an iBook G3 500 power pc running tiger 10.4.8. Any thoughts?

    Have you tried repairing permissions? It's in the Utility folder, under Disk utility..

    another option is to create another account and see if it works in the new account..

    Good Luck!

    I just did. We'll see how it helps. Honestly, that wasn't even on my radar. But thanks to you, I now know a little bit more about my computer. It corrected a long list of stuff though. A part of me gets intimidated doing stuff to my computer that I'm unfamilliar with. ie downloads, utilities etc. People say that I probably can't do anything to my computer that can't be corrected. I believe that's true, but there was a time when I accidentally changed my wireless preferences and it took me six hours to figure out what I did. Well anyway, THANKS!!!
