Safari is completely broken. Every time I click it an error window pops up and sends a report to apple. Not sure what to do. I've updated everything but nothing works.

    Have you tried deleting Safari Preferences?


    Have you tried resetting Safari?


    If you are running Lion, have you tried starting Safari up while holding the shift key?

    You've got the Flashback Trojan.

    (Note the period before the file name.)


    Read this and follow the directions.



    Check your Software Update for a new JAVA update. This will remove the trojan.

    You may be able to clear the infection by running the removal tool developed by a third party:


    Flashback Removal Tool - F-Secure


    Back up all data before you take this step. If it works, change every Internet password you have, starting with banking passwords, and check all financial accounts for unauthorized transactions.
