When my computer timed-out, I rebooted it only to find out thyat my Safari browser completely disappeared. I recently downloaded NeoOffice but I don't know if that affected anything. I've never "lost" my Safari browser in previous time-outs. How do I get it back (Tiger,  Mac OS X Version 10.4.11)?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.1.x)

    It isn't in the Applications folder?

     

    Is it just missing from the Dock?

    You can drag it from the Applications folder to the Dock & drop it, & you can remove things from the Dock by simply dragging them off the Dock... Poof!

     

    Once in the Dock Right Click and check keep in Dock if you always want it there.

    Wow, I've never bought any Music from the iTunes store, but I was thinking since we had this reboot & problem...

     

    Could be many things, we should start with this...

     

    "Try Disk Utility

     

    1. Insert the Mac OS X Install disc, then restart the computer while holding the C key.

    2. When your computer finishes starting up from the disc, choose Disk Utility from the Installer menu at the top of the screen. (In Mac OS X 10.4 or later, you must select your language first.)

    Important: Do not click Continue in the first screen of the Installer. If you do, you must restart from the disc again to access Disk Utility.

    3. Click the First Aid tab.

    4. Select your Mac OS X volume.

    5. Click Repair. Disk Utility checks and repairs the disk."

    Then try a Safe Boot, (holding Shift key down at bootup), run Disk Utility in Applications>Utilities, then highlight your drive, click on Repair Permissions, reboot when it completes.

     

    (Safe boot may stay on the gray radian for a long time, let it go, it's trying to repair the Hard Drive.)
