I've had my MacBook Pro since June, and just recently it started doing all sorts of weird things. First, pink and green pixellated squigglies appear all over the screen (here's a screenshot) in Safari. Then, when I go into iPhoto, I can see all the photos fine from the events view, but if I go into an album and try to view just one photo, it's totally black. Finally, Photoshop has started constantly freezing up and showing the pixellated things again, only to unfreeze after a minute or so. Which is really inconvenient when I'm using the eraser!

I don't know if these are necessarily connected, but they all started happening at the same time. As a relative computer dummy the only thing I know to do is restart, but that hasn't worked. Please help, the latch on my computer is already broken and I don't need anything else to go wrong.

I did run software update recently, and before that everything was fine, so I guess so. I don't suppose there's any way to undo that update?

You might try running the Combo update from the Apple Website. Sometimes the combo update will fix random things.
