Snow Leopard very disappointing

by noahchumleigh / August 28, 2009 3:56 AM PDT

In Snow Leopard Quickeys hangs at intervals and Spell Catcher only works on and off. My AES decryption software which was in services is no longer there and I can see no way of putting it back. This is a very disappointing. I have gone back to Leopard

Snow Leopard gets thumbs up! Way up!

Sorry to see that you're having an issue. We just upgraded to 10.6 and couldn't be happier about its performance. Everything went extremely smooth, took around 40 minutes from beginning to reboot for the entire process. Apple has done an incredible job, but I suppose there will always be someone who is unhappy about 'something' or another. Just like people can't make everyone happy, neither can companies, but it's apparent to me that Apple really has tried and for me and many others that I've heard about, they've succeeded. I read yesterday that one of the new features in 10.6 is that if it sees anything wrong with a program when it (OS X) is installing, it will place that program in a separate file until the company who makes the program fixes the compatibility problem with it. That might be what happened in your case with the decryption program. You might also want to run permissions to see if it fixes any issues. I was happy to see that permissions runs much faster now. What used to take us 10 or 15 minutes now only takes 1 or 2.

I hope you get everything sorted. 64 bit truly is incredible.

Incompatible folder

Just learned that there is a "Incompatible folder" for the old programs that weren't upgraded to 10.6 compatibility yet. I would check there for your missing program Happy

Hardly Apple's fault that Quick Keys does not function under Leopard, the developers versions have been around for some time now, although Apple did spring the release date forward by a month.

The Quick Keys web site, has a page explaining why it does not work

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
