Hi there,

I posted a question yesterday regarding my mac. Thought it was fixed so I closed the question, it appears it is not fixed.

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Apple/Operating_Systems/Q_22990085.html

I am running MAC OS X version 10.3.9.

All of the applications seem to be running OK apart from Apple Mail and Safari. When I try and go to utilities and then Try running a repair permissions in the Disk Utility it also crashes and I can't perform the repair.

Anyone know what the problem could be?

I would download the manual 10.3.9 update pkg and reinstall that now. Eiono was right to suggest that which he did first. If your Mac shipped with a hardware test disk, it would not hurt to run that now either. Next, you need to get a more robust system utility than Disk utility. i would suggest that you buy Disk Warrior with Drive Genius as a second pick. Either will ship with a  cd that you can boot to and run repairs from. Finally, every Mac owner should have their own backup drive that contains either a minimal OS X installation or a full cloned image of your ideal OS. Drives are so cheap now that everyone can take advantage of one of Mac's major advantage over Windows namely that there are more external and easy boot options  for Macs. It is very much easier to fix an installation correctly when you can boot form a healthy partition and work on an ailing one.
