Currently Being ModeratedJun 5, 2010 4:18 AM (in response to Jonathan Hils)Are you certain that you downloaded the combo update for Snow Leopard & not for Snow Leopard Server ?2008 iMacs: 24"/3.06 GHz + 20"/2.66 GHz; White MacBook/2.4 GHz, Mac OS X (10.6.3), Kensington Trackball; Airport Extreme 802.11n; assorted iPods and older Macs
Also tried installing 10.6.3 non-combo update, no luck. I had run the last Java update 10.6.3 update 2 a few days ago. Is this causing the issue not being to reinstall the 10.6.3 updates? Also, when I run Disk Utility repair permissions this is what I get:

Disk verified OK. I'm finding that when I open the system profiler, it's relatively slow to respond also. Tested this against my wife's MBP and there is a big difference in performance moving through windows. I ran Macscan & Norton and only found a few rogue cookies.
If I have to try a reinstall of OSX 10.6 will the archive & install feature keep all my software licenses? I really don't want to reinstall everything I have on this machine.15" MacBook Pro, 2.66 ghz Core i7, Mac OS X (10.6.3)
Currently Being ModeratedJun 6, 2010 6:50 AM (in response to Jonathan Hils)The messages you see from the permissions repair are normal. For more about this often discussed topic, search the forum for (for instance) "Permissions differ."
There is no archive & install feature for Snow Leopard. The default install method will not change anything besides the OS, so you won't have to reinstall all your apps.2008 iMacs: 24"/3.06 GHz + 20"/2.66 GHz; White MacBook/2.4 GHz, Mac OS X (10.6.3), Kensington Trackball; Airport Extreme 802.11n; assorted iPods and older Macs
