Hi PhoenixG27,

The first thing you should try is rebuilding the desktop. The best way to do that is by using Micromat's (http://www.micromat.com/) free "TechTool Lite" utility.

Hi goatman,

My experience is the same as that of Chris. That is, I have DSL and never get knocked off line when I use the Software Update control panel. My DSL software (EnterNet 300) is used to...

Hi Kingcake,

Hi again zebee

Most (probably all) of the icons you're looking for are in the resource fork of the "System Resources" file (found in the System Folder). They're in the "icns" resource. Here are a...

Hi Zeebe,

Although I realize that there was indeed an "Appearance" extension in OS 8, I too find your post a little confusing. :confused:

Hi sorenK,

In your Memory control panel, try using the "Custom" setting (maybe 8000K to 10000K) instead of the Default setting for the Disk Cache. The Default setting is an "estimate" and could...

Hi geek77,

You might try replacing the Finder itself. If you have the OS 9.1 CD, you can make a copy of the one in the System Folder on that CD. When you replace your Finder, it probably would be...
