Restart the computer from Apple menu.
When restart dialog box appears, uncheck the box beside
"Reopen windows when logging back in".

  • I keep getting a Warning that I'm running out of disk space. Even after I deleted all of my photos and e-mail I still show 0 available. Please help!

    I keep getting a Warning that I'm running out of disk space. Even after I deleted all of my photos and e-mail I still show 0 available space. Please help!

    Correct KiltedTim the iPhone does not have a disk drive, and it does give an error message about running out of disk space. I'm here searching for how to clear it and/or what causes it. A friends 8gb iphone 3G has started giving her that message. It is not jailbroken, has no videos, 400 songs, 20 apps. The system information says there is 0 bytes free. There is 4.6 Gb of "other" data taking up the remaining free space. None of the few apps on the phone I expect would take up that much space with data. Even her emails and saved text messages shouldn't fill 4GB. New iPhone coming in the next couple of days. Easiest to just reset the old one after the upgrade and redownload the apps to make sure not to mess things up.

  • Trying to update Adobe Reader, keep getting message "must quit applications" though I have nothing open on my computer.

    How do resolve this to continue with the update?

    Thank you for your answer
    I went to the App Store app and selected "Updates" along the bottom menu. It said 11 updates were available. I then chose "Update All." Before any updates could begin, the message popped up that "This Apple ID cannot be used to make purchases from the iTunes Store." That popped up twice, then the same message with, "Please enter another Apple ID" added. I tried 3 separate times (getting all 3 pop-up messages each time). I then tried updating apps via the App store app on my iPhone 4 and it worked fine. Then I signed into the iTunes store on my computer and bought a song (thankfully one I like ) and that worked fine. I tried on my iPod one more time before finally coming here to post a question.
    A few minutes after posting my question (and the reason I came back here, not knowing I'd received an answer) I thought I'd try one more time. This time, it worked with no problem and all the apps updated. So I don't know if somehow my purchasing something in iTunes on my computer helped, or creating this community ID did, or if it was just some temporary glitch. Whatever it was, it's working now.  Hopefully it doesn't happen again.
    Thanks again!

  • I keep getting an error 2048 everytime I try to play back my Maya file that I saved as a qt movie. I just recently updated qt and this is when the errors would pop up. Before the update I had no problems. How can I fix this?

    I updated quicktime a few days ago and now I keep getting error 2048 whenever i try to play back my Maya file after saving it as a qt movie. I had no issues with this before I did the update, after the update I keep getting the error 2048 message. QT will play my earlier Maya movies and other video, it just won't play back my latest work. Help me please, I need this for school.

    The 2048 error message usually suggests the files use MPEG-2 format which is not supported natively on Windows via QuickTime without the additional MPEG-2 Playback Component ($20 from Apple).

  • Adobe Flash, keep getting "failed to initialize"

    I have done all the recommended things on the blog. I have tried to remove any Adobe Flash that was in the machine(I wonder!). The processes are very complexed so I do wonder. My system is XP 3. I choose to run FireFox. I went through My Juno to no avail also, that uses Explorer. I don't find Adobe Flash in plug-ins but Shockwave Flash is there. I do have three out of date plug-ins, Adobe 8, Java Deployment Toolkit, and Java(TM) Platform. Most sights presume that all will be well after above has been done, but Oh No! Help would be appreciated.

    You may have to delete the pluginreg.dat file in the profile folder.
    To do this follow the instructions below.
    # Go to Firefox button > Help > Troubleshooting Info > Open Profile folder
    # A File manager window should show, delete pluginreg.dat '''when firefox is closed'''
    # Start up Firefox again and try to play flash content, does it work now?

  • Why do I keep getting an error message everytime I try to burn a cd

    Please help, for days now I have not been able to burn a CD. Everytime I try to burn a disc, I keep getting the message "The attempt to burn a CD failed.The burn failed because of a medium write error". Is anyone else having the same problems if so are there any solution.Any information will be appreciated.

    Is anyone else having the same problems if so are there any solution.
    Search the forum (I use a general web search engine) and you will find hundreds and hundreds of posts about this, spanning over a decade.  You may even find one of the several posts I make about this each month.
    Try restarting your computer.
    Try a slower burn speed.
    Try a different brand of media.
    Try using an optical drive cleaning disc.
    See if you can burn successfully outside of iTunes.  There's many free burning utilities out there (check www.pure-mac.com).  If those fail then it is likely something more fundamentally wrong with the drive.  Any Macbook old enough to be running 10.5.8 may well be old enough to need a new optical drive.

  • Trying to update adobe flash player and it keeps saying "Quit Firefox" but I did.

    trying to update adobe flash player on firefox and it keeps saying "Quit Firefox" but I did.

    Hello,
    Welcome to Adobe Forums.
    Do you have a MAC or Windows ?
    For Windows, you can launch Windows Task Manager and go to Processes Tab, kill "Firefox.exe"
    For MAC, you can launch Activity Monitor and Force Quit "Firefox"
    Thanks,

    Follow Troubleshooting security software. Often, uninstalling third-party security software will resolve these errors.
    There may be third-party software that modifies your default packet size in Windows by inserting a TcpWindowSize entry into your registry. Your default packet size being set incorrectly can cause these errors. Contact the manufacturer of the software that installed the packet size modification for assistance or follow this article by Microsoft: How to reset Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).
    Verify that access to ports 80 and 443 are allowed on your network.
    Verify that communication to albert.apple.com or photos.apple.com is not blocked by a firewall, or other Internet security setting.

  • MacBook Pro (OS X 10.6.8): can't update adobe flash - now Word, Chrome, etc. all crashing on startup

    I am not computer savvy, so if you answer, please be slow and deliberate. thanks!
    Was having Adobe shockwave/flash problems while running Chrome, which is not completely unheard of. Restarted my MacBook Pro (OS X 10.6.8), which included a software update (though I'm not sure exactly what programs were updated).
    Now Chrome will not run at all. Every time I start, it crashes immediately. Have tried SEVERAL times to trash/download it, but the same version seems to keep appearing in my Applications folder. Have also tried trashing the Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome folder to no avail. Appears back in its place after dragging it to the trash. 
    In addition, Adobe flash videos for Safari and Firefox (which I just downloaded as a tester) also will not work. Each attempt to update Adobe Flash also ends in a crash. And now I've discovered the same for everything Microsoft (Word, Excel, PowerPoint). The program shuts down and the Microsoft error message appears breifly, followed by the same crash "Mircrosoft Word Error Reporting Quit Unexpectedly" box.
    Again, have tried several times to download Chrome & Adobe Flash to no avail. All system updates have been made to date. What to do next?

    Has your computer started running slowly as well?  Everything taking forever to work?
    if so, this is the same type of issues I'm having.
