"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

We cannot provided assistance on you running Mac OS X, because it's against Apple EULA, to run on non-Apple hardware.

Just to let you know if this is a Mac OS X related question.

Hi Andrew - No issues at all, I wasn't aware I have upgraded to 11 and see no issues what so ever :) I tried the links and removed the KB update which didn't work so going to stick with 11.
