I'm currently connected to shared internet which does not require me to enter a password.

OS X :: Stop ITunes From Adding Songs Automatically?

Nov 6, 2010

I've been trying to figure out how to sort this for ages now, and I just can't get to the bottom of it to save my life. This is the situation. I've just downloaded an album, and it ended up in my Downloads folder, so I moved it to the desktop, then played one of the songs in the album. s soon as I played the song, it opened up in iTunes and then automatically added the song to the music library. I don't want it to do that, I've spent the last couple of hours sorting out my library, adding album artwork, name changes etc and the last thing I need is things getting automatically added to the music library and cluttering and messing things up.

Safari :: Stop From Opening 99 Tabs Automatically

Apr 21, 2012

When I first start up Safari - it automatically opens a huge number of tabs (the drop down menu on a tab right click shows an option to bookmark 99 tabs - and there are more tabs opened than I care to count). They appear to all be existing bookmarks; but could also be history.

At one point it would not let me close it at all & because it wouldn't close the OS would not allow a shutdown. So I had to do a hardware power off instead.

I played around with the setting and finnally - after severl hard reboots and a lot of try this & try that - I got it to allow itself to be closed. 

But the 99+/- auto opens continue to be a problem.  I've tried to completely clear my history, and several other property adjustments - but overall the behaviour remains very very flakely. 

I want to make it my default browser on all my Apple things (Macbook / iTouch / iPad) but the very bad behaviour keeps pushing me back to Firefox - sigh. It feels like a very bad user design that cannot be trusted. 

Are there some obvious know gotcha's with this browser? Or some standard settings that should never be touched? Or are these common bugs that just don't work right?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Cannot Get Imac To Stop Automatically Searching For Updates

Mar 15, 2012

I cannot get my imac to stop automatically searching for updates. I set preferences to monthly, or turn it off - it doesn't matter I cannot change it from checking for updates constantly. Furthermore, once it's checked for updates I cannot dismiss the ones I do not need or want. It constantly asks me to install the updates even though I would have no use for them.

Apple wants cash to solve the problem. Since it began occurring  after my last paid OS update, that's BS.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Can't Stop Applications Automatically Starting In User Account

Jun 1, 2012

Parental control is active, but no restrictions on which applications they can use; just website restrictions and time limits.Allowed them to modify the dock.Each time they log in various applications automatically start and removing them from the startup list does not seem to solve the problem, and one is not even on the list.The "re-open windows" check box is NOT selected when they log out and I watched them quit the applications before logging out.

Example: for one account iTunes Helper always shows up on the startup list... I try to remove it in their account and it just pops back up... this appears to cause iTunes to autostart each time the log in... annoying.

Example: same account, the System Preferences always start up... fortunately it is locked so the kid can modify anything. But again, annoying.

MacBook Pro :: Stop Automatic Graphics Switching Setting Automatically Reverting

Jun 25, 2012

Macbook Pro 15" Mid 2010

OS X 10.7.4 

I have a recurring problem where my screen (built in or external monitor/projector) will just go blank at random times. It is an unrecoverable situation and I have to do a hard power reset to get working again.

After testing several theories without success I struck upon one that showed promise. The blanking tended to occur when I was in Lion Fullscreen mode, or using a gesture to start expose - so I figured maybe it was a graphics switching issue.

So I went into System Preferences and disabled 'Automatic graphics switching'. I then ran trouble free for several days (I was typically crashing 1-2 times a day)

Then several days later it happened again and I thought I was back to square one. However, a colleague suggested I check the graphic switching setting to see if something had changed it back, and sure enough it was re-enabled.

Now I find myself in a constant battle with the system to keep disabling the 'Automatic graphics switrhing' in System Preferences.

I have tried setting it and locking it, but sooner or later it reverts. I need to know if it is possible to force it to stay disabled.

IMac :: Stop Downloading Files/copying To Clipboard And Saving Files To Desktop?

Nov 29, 2009

Why does my mac stop downloading files, copying to clipboard, saving files to desktop, etc?

iMac g5 1.9 ghz 17" running 10.5.8. Had a hard drive crash and bought a new one. Loaded new OS leapord. Everything works fine at first, but after the computer has been on for a while, it will stop downlading files, disk verify doesn't work. I can't copy and paste stuff. It seems as if the hard drive is full, but I have only used 32GB of 300GB.

When I restart, it works again, then slowly not. Is it an overheating issue? How do I know if my fan is running? Is it a bad hard drive I put in it? Bought it new with three year waranty.

Software :: System Resets Automatically?

Dec 11, 2010

I have a MacBook, OS X 10.4.11, 2 GHz Intel Core Duo.

Today, all of a sudden my laptop seems to reset. My desktop flickers and then all files are out of place, the colors have changed etc. When I open an application, all my settings are GONE. This concerns mail, firefox (no more bookmarks), all of my pictures in iPhoto are gone, files that I was downloading with Vuze have disappeared... Everything is as if I've just bought a new computer. iTunes seems to be OK though, all of my music is still there. And all data (word documents etc) are still on my hard drive.

Can anyone help me to retrieve my former settings?

Another problem I want to ask about : I have all my pictures copied in a file on my hard drive. But all in a small size. Does anyone know how I stop this from happening automatically?

I should mention that I don't have many computer skills, and don't speak much jargon, so it would be nice to answer in dummy language. :-)

OS X :: Automatically Copy Certain Files?

Nov 25, 2008

I want to copy certain files (to an external hard drive, but that doesn't matter) to another folder. But i want it to do it automatically with one click (or two, but you get the point). I want it to only copy files that are also in the destination folder from the source folder to the destination folder. (sorry that doesn't make much sense). But my goal is to back up my music into a folder, but not all of, only the folders that are already there. So basically, replacing old with new, but adding no new folders at all.
