Hi there,

I have a Power Mac G5 running MAC OS X version 10.3.9 and I can't launch any of my applications. When I try and launch an application the timer keeps turning and the computer freezes. It was working fine yesterday. Is there anyway of restoring it to it's state yesterday?

Many Thanks

Nope .. there's no system restore in OSX ..
Try running a repair permissions in the Disk Utility .. if you can open it.

Next option is the boot from the Apple OSX system restore DVD and run Disk Utility from there.

Third option is to boot in Single User mode and run fsck from there ... do a little search here in E-E for instructions on how to run a fsck - file system check on OSX
