I'd probably start by downloading the 10.6.3 combo update and running that again.

You can grab it here.

Thanks for your quick reply

Do you think i should maybe re-install my os x disk and try software update after this? or is there a less extreme solution i could try first

8.3% free space
Some say that's not enough.

Even if it wasn't enough, surely the update would still show up in software update

I would be one of those. With that amount of free space, it's entirely possible there is not enough free contiguous space for the combo update to be installed.
If you're not already experiencing slow downs, spinning beach balls and other things, they are on their way.

I'd also open up About This Mac and verify you are already running 10.6.3.

That's a drag you had to go that far. I will recommend though - keep at least 15% free space, 20 if you can. As cheap as drives are and with only a 60GB drive, you might want to consider an upgrade in there also.

Yeah the crazy thing is that all my music, videos, application installers, samples, loops ect are all stored on my external 1tb drive. my internal hard drive is nearly full with just applications. i really should think about upgrading the internal drive, thanks for the advise
