Dear BC Community:

 

This Q is not for me. But, rather for a good friend who recently purchased a refurbished imac OSX Version 10.5.8 platform re-sold to him by Syracuse Universitry here in our area. As for me, I am IBM through and through. But, I know a lot of you peeps are Mac experts. Could you help me help my friend with his following (2) questions? He's probobly running Leopard (but I'm not sure). Like me, he is a musician but is not into professional DAW as I am in Windows for Microsoft.

 

#1.

 

When he goes to YouTube, strip banner appears prompting him to update Plug-in's that cycle 4-ever.

 

#2.

 

Installer asks for his password a/o Admin privs, etc. He says nothing works for down-load as he tries to follow instructions to these prompts. He is frustrated because he uses Google earth and also Movie Maker for iMac.

 

In closing, any thoughts?

 

All answers, suggestions and comments welcomed!

 

Thank you all so much!

You wouldn't know exactly which plugins are prompting him to update?

OS X: Changing or resetting an account password

Thanks Buddyme2:

As I indicated, he metioned download frustrations with Google Earth and Movie Maker for Mac. However, I wouldn't be surprised if the link you sent me resolves some, or all, of his dilemna. I just emailed it to him and will keep you posted.

 

Thanks again!
