I just got my new ibook and have had some problems. My iphoto went bazurk...which I fixed by creating a new iphoto library and ditching the old one(was able to keep my pics thank god) but now some more stuff is bugging me.
Mostly with AIM....and sometimes with Safari...the program completley just crashes and i get an error message like the application has quit unexpectently and i have the option of reopening it or w/e. It's been happening very often at some points and its driving me nuts. Any help?

what are you doing when this occurs and what are your mac specs.

Just use iChat. You can still use your AIM account and unlike AIM, iChat is not a complete pile of crap..hehe :black:
As far as programs quitting unexpectedly, your first thing to do would be to repair permissions.
Go to Applications>Utillities>Disk Utility
When you have Disk Utility open, select your HD and click on the "Repair Permissions" button.
This will usually clear up any "weirdness" you may happen to notice.
For more indepth help, please post all of your system's specs and we can try to help you a little better.__________________________________________________

It sounds like bad memory to me.. that's usually the type of behavior when you have bad RAM installed.. you might want to go to an Apple store and have them check it out.---> Join the Mac-Forums Folding team: use 37954 as your team number.

make sure all ur software is up to date, and use adium as ur AIM client. Adium is more or less like a trillian but for the mac. Ive been using ever since i got my pbook and love it.
and check out the adium xtras, you can customize it out the butt.
