    mac pro won't restart after imovie crash
    I am running a Mac Pro with 2x2.66ghz dual core intel xeon.
    It crashed using imove and since then will not do a normal restart. It will startup in safe boot and everything is there. I have run the usual HD utility and and mac keeper etc.- all safe everything is ok. I have reinstalled Snow Leopard and also reinstall the whole disk from time machine. No luck. still starts in safe boot but not normal startup. ... I use this mac for work, any thoughts what it could be? ....Gavo.

    I would uninstall MacKeeper for a start, or do a clean install but whatever you do do not re-install MacKeeper, it causes more problems than it solves

    Try an SMC restart by powering down, unplugging from mains for a few minutes and see if that makes a difference. Also reinforce louishen's suggestion about MacKeeper. It ios crapware of the worst type.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    mac fixed
    Thanks guys, after doing all the hard work and just about to erase the HD and do a clean install, I deleted mackeeper & switched off the power for 5 mins. On restart .... all good, it works. Thanks for your assistance. Sometime the simplest solution are the best. The 'IT Crowed' would be proud!!
