I have a G4 Yikes! with MacOS 9.0.4 with all the latest updates. I have a problem with modal dialog boxes. Every time a modal dialog box pops up it hangs the computer. Sometimes command+option+escape will allow me to quit the app, and when I go back in, the Mac works fine with modals, but oftentimes the whole Mac hangs and I have to hit the reset switch.
Other modal boxes that just pop up a message, like the "encoding attachment" when you attach something in Outlook Express will also hang the computer. I am at a point now, where I feel I may need to reinstall the OS, but I would rather avoid doing that. Virex says there are no viruses.
Anyone have any ideas?
