I may be kicked out of here for saying so, but I am a very creative, scattered, silly girl who only gave in to the computer world a few months ago! I need a lot of help! I have an imac version 10.3.
First of all, something was taking too long one day to come up and the rainbow spinny thing was going on and on. So I tried to force quit, but instead it said relaunch, so I stupidly pressed it. Now I cannot get the finder to do anything. Or itunes. All my stuff I fear is gone. When the internet(which still works) is all shut down there are no words at the top of the screen except for the time! I can't shut it down either. The dumbest thing of all was that I was trying to download the old AppleIIe Oregon Trail!!
Is this the problem or was it relaunching the finder. In the about my computer, applications everything is there.
I can hear you all laughing at me!!!, but please help out a damsel in distress!! -my name is Sara.
