    After installing MC3.0, Macbook Pro keeps crashing. Help!

    I installed MC 3.0 on my macbook pro 2.33GHz/ 2GB RAM/ 120GB HD.

    I am running Leopard 10.5.4.

    After installing it asked to restart the machine and I did but my macbook pro keeps crashing.

    It'll try to start but freeze up.

    Can someone tell me what's going on, how I can fix this problem.

    Thanks in advance,

    Zia

     It is very important, before you install MC, that you create a clean install of your OS by doing an archive and install from your OS install disks. Did you do that?

    So you're telling me that I need to do complete clean reinstall of Leopard?

    I think it's on page one of the Read Me.

    Yes, you need to have a clean install. Not for any really voodoo reason other than, if you don't rid your system of absolutely everything from the old install, this kind of hang up happens.
