OS9 Crash - sRGB "rescued item"

Using the browser iCab 2.97, I have occasional cursor freezes in 9.2.2, requiring a hard restart. Most often when this happens, I find sRGB in the Rescued items in the Trash. I haven't really tracked this, but I think I usually have Graphic Converter open in the background when it happens. I've been through GC's Prefs but see no reference to it. There are no visible or invisible files on my drive containing the string srgb. I just found a setting in Photoshop 7 where the color profile was set to sRGB and turned it off, but I don't see how that can help as I'm never running Photoshop.

I'd chock it up to the cost of using a beta grade browser, and 9.2.2. iCab was once a good browser but it definitely has its issues. So does 9.2.2.

sRGB is a monitor color profile and it may be selected in your ColorSync preferences.

OK, now I've tried using Netscape 7.01, Mozilla 1.3, and IE 5.17, all with similar cursor freezes, so it isn't an iCab problem. And, my Colorsync wasn't/isn't set to sRGB.

More clues: it never happens when I'm not using an internet app; it happened today with Eudora, so it's not always a browser; and it doesn't always result in sRGB, for instance with IE it'll be "IE Cache.lck" Rescued; the sRGB is rescued only when I have Graphic Converter open.

Sounds like your OS just has issues. Something is screwy somewhere in the inner workings. It may be totally unrelated to internet apps. May have something to do with the TCP stack. Have you run any maintenance software lately? When was the last time you had an OS reinstall?

I just removed 2 suspect RAM modules and turned off VM. Still get freezes. I've run DFA and Disk Warrior today, with only very minor repairs.

At the very beginning of startup, some screen flashes by so fast I can't see what it contains, but I've seen so many Mac starts that I know it's anomalous. I've now gotten out my old vidcam and will try to capture it.

When all else fails, reinstall.
