I have tried disabling different extensions such as Echo sound card and various shareware control panel stuff. I never noticed this problem before. I have a mac 7500 with a powerforce g3/350 upgrade card. I have 64 mb of ram and I am running 8.6. When I launch the macworld tour it freezes and I have to restart. The macaddict cdrom starts up but cannot install software...such as ie5..
I guess the next step is a clean install of the system.
what have you tried as a fix? and which MacOS are you using and which Mac are we talking about?
