What is a recommended decompression software for a non-Lion compatible MacBook Pro 1,1 2 GHz Intel Core Duo running OS X Version 10.6.8?

What is a recommended decompression software for a non-Lion compatible MacBook Pro 1,1 2 GHz Intel Core Duo running OS X Version 10.6.8?

My thanks to you and all other respondents.  In backing up "theVault" App I thought that my ancient version of Stuffit was inadequate to unzip the backup file.  I attempted to download the latest Zipit version which only works with Lion.  After upgrading to Stuffit 9 I realized that theVault backup file was encrypted so as to not open on the backup Mac.  One must restore to the iPhone where is does open.
My apologies for the imprecise post.  I am finding limitations with not being able to install Lion on my early MacBook Pro.  I can recommend theVault to those looking for a password App with secure backup.

  • Hello, I have a Macbook Pro 17'' 2.4 GHz Intel Core i7 (2011). I dont know what happened but the pixels on black or dark areas on my monitor are displayed in a flickering red color, and on white areas are light blue. Any idea??

    Hello,
    I have a Macbook Pro 17'', 2.4 GHz Intel Core i7 (late 2011). I dont know what happened but the screen shows red flickering pixels everywhere where it should be black, and light blue pixels where it should be gray, I had this problem twice, the first time it just disappeared by itself. Now it's been like this for days, I have really no clue.
    Anyone with the same problem or solution?
    This is how it looks like:
    Thanx

    Is that a camera picture or a screen-shot? Is there any difference? i.e., can you capture the problems in a screen shot, or not?

    It's beta open source software so I'm not surprised. It does't look to be too active a project, so I don't know if it will help or not but you might be maybe better off posting a bug report on their Sourceforge page here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/kompozer/

  • What is the latest version of Firefox compatible with a MacBook Pro with 2.33 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo running OSX 10.5.8?

    I keep getting told my browser needs updating and it doesn't work right on some websites. I have had unhappy experiences in the past trying to update Apple OS and Firefox due to compatibility issues. I suppose I could switch to Safari but I have been using Firefox for many years and would prefer to stick with what I know.

    Firefox 16.0.2 was the last to work on the old Mac OSX 10.5.x as Firefox 17.0 to current has required OSX 10.6+

    what is the recommended virus software for my MacBook?

    None, actually, is needed as there are no known viruse affecting OS X.

    An excellent link to read is Tom Reed's Mac Malware Guide.
    Also, visit The XLab FAQs and read Detecting and avoiding malware and spyware.
    If you require anti-virus protection I recommend using ClamXav.

  • What is the recommended security software for a Mac?

    what is the recommended security software for a Mac

    My standard spiel on malware:
    At this time there have been no confirmed Mac OS X viruses (subject to the semantic debate about whether the old iChat exploit, now long since blocked, was properly classified as a virus or a trojan horse, and not counting the Word macro virus that can affect Office v.X or non-updated copies of Office 2004), very few trojans and no adware or spyware. I therefore do not feel that antivirus or antispyware software is necessary at this time as long as users are careful about what they download from the Internet or accept as attachments via email.
    The most common exploit is a recent outbreak of "scareware" that people are encountering while web surfing. This "scareware" pops up and claims that your system is infected with viruses, prompts you to download their "scanner", then tells you that you need to purchase their paid software to remove them. These fake applications, appearing by many names including Mac Defender, Apple Security Center, Apple Web Security, and many others, do nothing at all other than turn off the fake warnings once they have your money. DO NOT fall for these.
    Security precautions for Mac OS X mostly are common sense: don't download and run files from sites you don't know, don't fall for any "you have viruses" messages, don't double-click on attachments in emails you aren't expecting and/or from people you don't know, and make sure you password your system with a non-trivial password and keep that password secure. In addition, don't leave your system available in a public place and unattended where someone unauthorized could use it and potentially install malware (such a policy is also a precaution against theft).
    It is possible for a Mac user to inadvertently forward a Windows virus to a PC user though you'd have to do it manually so the above precautions would probably prevent such virus-spreading, and said Windows virus cannot infect the Mac.
    If you do decide you wish to run antivirus software, I think that the donationware clamXav should be more than enough. iAntivirus has also been recommended by others, though I have no personal experience with it.
    If you are running Windows on your system, either via BootCamp, Parallels Workstation or another solution, then that copy of Windows is subject to all the myriad exploits common to the Windows world, so you need to take full precautions, including running both antivirus and antispyware software.
    Regards.

    What is the recommended security software for MacPro? I am getting popups, including offer to sell Mac Sheild. Is this legit?

    No, it is not legit, it's a scam. Avoid such popups and DO NOT under any circumstances fall for any claims that your system has been infected by viruses and download any of this "scareware". See:
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4650
    For additional information, see also:

    http://www.reedcorner.net/guides/macvirus/  
    If you do a forum search on Mac Defender, Mac Protector or Apple Security Center (this fake has a lot of different names) you will also find a lot of threads about this.
    The most recommended "security software" is "none", beyond common sense and normal caution. If you do, however, decide you wish to run antivirus software, I think that the donationware clamXav should be more than enough provided you remember to scan your system from time to time. iAntivirus has also been recommended by others, though I have no personal experience with it.
    If you are running Windows on your system, either via BootCamp, Parallels Workstation or another solution, then that copy of Windows is subject to all the myriad exploits common to the Windows world, so you need to take full precautions, including running both antivirus and antispyware software.

  • What is the direct connect method for transfering photos from my macbook pro to my iphone without using iTunes syncronization? (iow: a simple photo copy from mac to iphone?)

    I feel like I should know the answer to this. I can't believe it is a hard question.
    What is the direct connect method for transfering photos from my macbook pro to my iphone without using iTunes syncronization? (iow: a simple photo copy from mac to iphone?)
    Easy? Right?
    Just plug my iphone in to a mac and copy a photo from the mac to my iphone.
    I don't have internet access - I can't email it, or mobileme it, or dropbox it.

    iTunes. Other than that there is no direct method. However, do try the iPhone forums.

  • I am running 10.6.8 but can't upgrade to Lion. 1.83 GHz Intel Core Duo processor 1.83 GB memory. What should I do?

    My MacBook software is 10.6.8 but I can't upgrade to Lion. 1.83 GHz Intel Core Duo with 2GB memory. What to do?

    Lion/101.7 System requirements
        •    x86-64 processor (Macs with an Intel Core 2 Duo, Intel Core i3, Intel Core i5, Intel Core i7, or Xeon processor.)
        •    At least 2GB of memory, (I say 4GB)
        •    Latest version of Mac OS X Snow Leopard (10.6.8), with the Mac App Store installed
        •    At least 4GB of disk space for downloading, (I say 40GB at least)
    Like Snow Leopard, Lion does not support PowerPC-based Macs (e.g., Power Macs, PowerBooks, iBooks, iMacs (G3-G5), eMacs).
    Lion also does not support 32-bit Intel Core Duo or Core Solo based Macs. Rosetta is no longer available in Lion, which means Lion no longer supports PowerPC applications.

  • I have a macbook pro with a 2.16 GHz Intel core Duo processor. Can I install the iOS 5 software

    I have a macbook pro with a 2.16 Ghz Intel core Duo processor. Can I install the iOS 5 software?

    iOS 5 is for iDevices, not OS X. Your iDevice would only require 10.5.8 or later. If you have a Mac with a Core Duo processor then you cannot install Lion but you can install Snow Leopard provided you have at least 1 GB of RAM installed.

  • My MacBook Pro, 1.83 GHz Intel Core Duo gives me an error message during Lion install. My Intel Duo Core is not an Intel Duo Core and cannot install Lion.  I already have Snow Leopard what is the problem with Lion?

    My MacBook Pro, 1.83 GHz Intel Core Duo gives me an error message during Lion install. My Intel Duo Core is not an Intel Duo Core and cannot install Lion.  I already have Snow Leopard what is the problem with Lion?

    You need a "Core 2 Duo" for lion, and I'm guessing you only have a "Core Duo"  My wife's macbook is also a "Core Duo" and has Snow Leapord, but cannot install Lion.....

  • I'm investigating whether I can take on 'Lion' when it's released. The information states that your mac needs Intel Core 2 Duo. Is this the same as '2 GHz Intel Core Duo' which is what it actually states my mac has?

    I'm investigating whether I can take on 'Lion' when it's released. The information states that your mac needs 'Intel Core 2 Duo'. Is this the same as '2 GHz Intel Core Duo' which is what it actually states my mac has when I click 'About This Mac'?

    I could not agree more! My MBP 2007 Intel Core Duo has had its logic board replaced not to long ago (DVI port died). The original hard drive is running great and I am running Snow Leopard wonderfully.
    I was amped during the keynote and am really looking forward to Lion. I know the community is working hard to uncover a workaround because at present time, the solution (by new!) is not a worthy one. Especially when there is literally, nothing wrong with my existing machine.
    Apple, please ensure Lion will be available for Intel Core Duo machines, we are not that old! The closed architecture approach produces quality hardware. 4 years is a toddler perhaps teenager when it comes to apple hardware and technology. I predict I have at least 3-4 more years left in my current MBP 2007 machine.
    Much Love, Apple!

  • What is the most effective way to get my imac 2 ghz intel core duo 2 10.4.11 to be able to run 10.5 and sync with my iphone 4s?

    What is the most effective way to get my imac 2 ghz intel core duo 2 10.4.11 to be able to run 10.5 and sync with my iphone 4s?

    As your Mac should run Snow Leopard provided it has at least 1GB memory, that would be a good deal easier and very much cheaper than trying to find a 10.5 install disc.
    Snow Leopard costs $30 approx from the online Apple store (£26 if you're in UK)
    You'll need to update Tiger to 10.4.11 with the combo installer first (unless you're just erasing the disc and starting fresh) You can then update SL from 10.6.3 to 10.6.8 with its combo installer.
    For comparison, 10.5 Leopard is currently running about $130 from Apple (if still available) and more on Amazon etc.

    Leopard is no longer available at the Apple Store but may be available by calling Apple Phone Sales @ 1-800-MY-APPLE (1-800-692-7753).
    If you can't obtain a retail install DVD from Apple, look on eBay or Google the installer part numbers to possibly find at an on-line store. Here's what to look for:
    MB427Z/A  Leopard 10.5.1 install DVD
    MB576Z/A  Leopard 10.5.4 install DVD
    MB021Z/A  Leopard 10.5.6 install DVD (single user)

  • How can I create a start up disk for a old intel core duo running 10.5.8.. Computer works fine, but can't find install disk.

    How can I create a start up disk for a old intel core duo running 10.5.8.. Computer works fine, but can't find install disk. Want to use internal disk drive or USD flash drive.

    Try calling 1-800-676-2775.  Give the serial number and thy *may* still burn you new install disks designed just for the hrdware in your system (for a fee, something like $160 per disk).  *May* is only because they may not burn disks for Leopard anymore.
    If they do not burn them for you, you can buy Leopard disks off Amazon or eBay for about $200.
    Have you considered Snow Leopard?.  Those disks only cost $19 (single user) or $29 (5-user license) through Apple by calling 1-800-MY-APPLE.
