Hi for some reason all of the sudden my Safari doesn't work, it will close right after opening in most cases. Sometimes if you stay on your homepage it will stay on, but mostly will close. I have Snow Leopard, and am up to date with updates, I am using Version 5.1.7 (6534.57.2) of Safari. I didn't change anything of my settings or anything. I have Sophos anti virus and it can't find anything on my computer, so I'm at a loss.

Mac Book Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8), 17"

    Post a copy of the most recent crash report.


    Go to your Applications Folder and open your Utilities Folder. Open the application Console.


    In the left-hand column, click on Crash Reporter.


    Click on the small triangle under Crash Reporter in the l/h column and they will all be listed.


    Scroll down to the latest Safari report and click on it.


    Now click on the r/h column (which now only shows THAT crash report and then Command-a to copy it all.


    Come back here and Command-v it to post it here!

    I'd start by disabling AVAST, then testing for stability. Sophos and ClamXav are about the only two Mac AV packages that don't cause too many issues.
