I see you registered today to complain. I hope you will consider starting over again. All of us here are other Mac users, who are given the opportunity by Apple to help other users. And rants are not allowed here.
So, if you would like help, we would be happy to help you through this. All you need to do is rephrase your "Up Yours, Apple" rant to a question asking for technical support.
Your situation is usually not difficult to solve. So, would you like to ask a question?
Really, I only wanted to comment on the update. Which really wasnt helpful
When I wrote this I was close to tears as I tried everything.
Soon after it somehow worked again. Now it seems to be solved.
I truely apologize and I will not complain on this forum again.
Thanks for putting me straight!
