    Update loop bug (Snow Leopard)
    I have installed Snow Leopard on my macbook and when I try to update he asks to accept the contract and then install and restart, but when I click in the install and restart button, it goes back to accept the contract (is something like eternal bug i think). How do I fix this? I have to downgrade to Leopard and forget the Snow Leopard?

    trully yours,

    Are you using the software updater to download whatever it is you are downloading ??
    Is the SL 10.6.0 > 10.6.1 update ??

    No need to forget SL is there anymore info you can supply?
    Personally i go straight to the Apple site to get any major updates.

    Cheers

    Have you tried re-booting 1st ??

    If not go to HD>applications>utilities>disk utilities and do a repair disk permissions.
    Reboot and try again.

    Try that thus far and keep us posted

    Cheers

    Edit : what system have you got. The more info we have the better chance of a fix ...

    Open Disk Utility & select the hard drive from the list (not the name of the volume indented under it).
    At the bottom of the window, you will see a line of info that tells you the Partition Map Scheme of the drive. It should be "GUID Partition Table."
    Is it?

    In Disk Utility select the volume & click the Verify Disk button.
    If it reports any problems, follow the instructions at the top of the window to restart from your installer disc & run the Repair Disk step.

    Also post your specs plz like tattooedmac asked, it will make it easier for us to give a proper response.

    Also, I'd advize you that if this does not work, check what the update is doing for your system, like in big important
    changes.
    If it doesn't have them, consider skipping this one and hold out for the next one.
    A lot of people are experiencing issues after this update

    Not good. Might be time to ring Apple and have a chat unless anyone else can jump in with a possible solution.

    EDIT :
    ^^ and someone has
