    My Imac runs well,even though its old (2007 10.6.3 os x) recently it will only start up in safe mode - so this means I have no sound or video. Also If I restart it with out going into safe mode the only things that appear on my desktop is spotify, torrents and DVX player - very strange.

    Please help is possible, I am not very tech savvy but it appears this could be a simple fix.

    Thanks in advance

    You'd have to manually disable extensions until you found the one causing the problem.

    What exactly happens when you start normally?
    Does this include login into a user account or just to the login screen?
