    Installing OS X security update 2010-003
    I've tried this three times now, the last two times doing a disk utility check and repair permissions. I still get the message that the installer could not check contents of package.

    I am not very technical so any help or advice is most welcome!

    Are you trying to install via the Software Update or as a separate download ?
    Secondly ... are you installing the appropriate security update for your OS ( 10.5.8 ) and not the one for Snow Leopard ( 10.6.x )

    A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.
    The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

    The install is an update that was not prompted by me but automatically came up and prompted me to install. I was prompted a second time by the bouncing globe symbol a week after the first failure.

    Would I be sent an update by Apple that was for an OS I didn't have? I don't know, as all I know is it was 2010-003.
