    seems you have Spectorsoft monitoring/blocking software on your mac, some versions conflict badly with Safari 5.

    Either update, uninstall, or if you can't do either of those, try renaming or removing the problem item
    /usr/local/esps/eia then restarting.

    paste /usr/local/esps/ into a Finder -Go - Go to Folder dialogue... or even into a Safari address bar, if it stays open long enough. That will take you right there.
