Help! I have an early 2008 MacBook and am running Lion. I downloaded the 10.7.5 security update (which took over an hour), and my iPhoto 11 suddenly stated it could not run on OSX 10.7.4!  I checked Software Updates and it still displayed 10.7.5 as being required, so I reinstalled it -  and now Safari keeps crashing before it opens - I can't even check Safari's version number.  I have gone via Finder and right-clicked for Info and it displays version 5.1.7, which does not sound right (is that referring to the version of Info?).  I've looked in the Safari report, and it shows multiple Thread errors.  Sorry I'm not very computer literate, and bought a Mac years ago so I wouldn't have these issues.  So, what do I now?

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.7.5), Safari won't open

    5.1.7 is the Safari version.


    Post the Safari crash report by copying and pasting in your Reply. The entire report including the, "binary images" section.

    I'm not sure what you may have done but from what I have read, the downloading of 10.7.5 should lead to Software update making the 6.1 version of Safari available to you.   It is not included in the 10.7.5 update; as far as I can see, you need to get it from Software update afterwards

    Install the OS X Lion Update 10.7.5 (Client Combo)


    Then restart your Mac. It's ok to do this even though v10.7.5 is already installed on your Mac. Combo updates replace missing files that may help with Safari.
