    Specs:
    20" Intel iMac 2.4 Ghz/3G Ram/320HD, Snow Leopard. PBook G4, 1.5Ghz/1.5 Ram/250 HD, Leopard 10.5.6.
    Run maintenance. Use disk utility from your install disc and verify permissions and the HD.
    Also, reset Safari from the file menu, it gives you lots of options.
    That could well solve a lot of your issues.

    I suggest calling your local Apple store and make a genius appointment.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    That's certainly very unusual for a new computer. I second letting a Genius look at it to try to discover the problem. There's only so much troubleshooting advice you can get online for a problem that's so inexplicable.

    Agreed.

    And with as much trouble as you've had with that machine, I'm starting to wonder if you should pick a new username?
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    But what is this set to?

    Click for full size

    And for item 2 - if it happening in both browsers then i would be checking out Network settings in case there is a conflict there.

    That's sweet. Also, if you hate the idea of new windows (i know I do), I used a terminal command to make all links open in a new tab instead of new windows.
    defaults write com.apple.Safari TargetedClicksCreateTabs -bool true

    Well, if you're trying to hide your porn or whatever, the best way, IMO, is to open disk utility and say "create new image" - make a new image of whatever size you think you'll need, and encrypt it with a password. It won't be invisible, but it will be unsearchable unless it is mounted. You can always name it something fun too, like, "grass.dmg" or something, put it in an obscure location, and if someone stumbles upon it and is like, "what's that?" be like, "i have no idea," try to open it, type in the wrong password, and be like, "huh. weird."
