Post Mac Boot Command
From what I have read, I did not shut down my computer property, which I disagree with, but the symptoms are all the same.

So I am reading that I should do the following:

As you have switched it on hold down the Apple cmd button + S, untill the booting screen comes up.

Once that has loaded
type:

/sbin/mount -uw /

then type:

chmod 775 /

then type:

exit


From what I am reading, this alone show reboot my computer. However, nothing is happing There are no more further instructions, and it is also un clear to me if I type all the in one line, or in their own lines as showed above? Do I need to hit enter or do anything else?

Yes, hit Return after each line.

chmod 775 does a permissions change, which shouldn't really be necessary. None of this should, really.

If you reboot holding down Shift, you go into "safe mode" with no extras loaded. It also automatically runs the FSCK tool during boot. You can run FSCK after booting single-user mode as you are above (Command-S) by typing "fsck -fy" and hitting return, but why do things the hard way?

What the heck is going on that you need to do this?

The absolute best thing you can do if the HD is not booting right..

* Find your factory DVD-ROM, put it in the computer
* Restart, hold the C key to boot from the "CD" (now DVD)
* After that finishes loading, go to the Utilites menu and launch Disk Utility
* Select your main drive and Repair Disk, then Repair Permissions
* Let me know what happens

:)

Well, I've been having problems with Safari lately. Every time I want to do shut down my computer it tells me it .can't because Safari is runnimg. This has been going on for a few weeks now. Then early this morning I got a Flash updated notification updated, and I accidentally uninstalled it.
So then I google adobe flash, went to the website and tried to reinstall it, but again it keptfailing because according to my computer Safari was still running.

So I forced a shut and fast fwd a few hours later and here I am.
Someone on FB thinks that I have the Flashback Trojan malware, and it could be, but I doubt it, especially because I went to Adobe's website g

I don't see how doing a chmod 775 on the whole drive is going to help that. At all. In fact, it's dangerous as hell. Where are you seeing those instructions?

Besides, the latest OS X updates recognize and kill Flashback.

But that has nothing to do with Safari stuck running. You went full nuclear war for a kid stealing gum. Or are you having trouble booting now?

ps- Why didn't you just force quit Safari?

I tried. The thing was that Safari wasn't really running, but my computer thought it was. I couldn't quit it because it wasn't running. I just pulled out the system disc that originally came with the computer. I'm going to try that.

Cool.

Regarding Safari: Couldn't quit, or couldn't force quit? Was the icon still "dotted" in the dock? To force quit, either right-click on the dock icon (and it may say the Application is Not Responding with an option to quit there) or hit Command-Option-ESC and select the app from the pop-up menu.
