    Question Apple Software Update
    Every time I try to load my Apple Software update, the progress bar reaches about 3/4 of the way and the program has to be force quitted. This hasn't happened once or twice, but happens every time I try to update.
    Is there some kind of fix I can do to make it work?
    Thanks in advance.

    What's the processor speed of your computer..and what sort of internet connection do your have (dial-up, cable, DSL, satellite)?

    If your computer is within spec per pigoo3 comments then try downloading the Combo updater from here and running that. It is a big file so u need a reasonable connection.
