    When attempting to download software from a web site, my screen goes black immediately I hit the 'download' button.

    It has been suggested that it's a download manager problem, but that's rather too vague for me.

    Using Snow Leopard on an Intel iMac; Safari 4.0.3

    Anxiously awaiting wise counsel......nhobart@tampabay.rr.com

    Software as diverse as Time Machine Buddy and Firefox won't download; any and all websites; cable (RoadRunner) connexion; and it began with the installation of Snow Leopard around two weeks ago.

    Problem solved. The source of the misery was a couple of Netscape plugins left over from years ago and lurking in the internet plugin file.

    Thank you everyone for your help.
