    Recently when I'm trying to unstuff files stuffit expander just loads and then quits, it dosen't unstuff the file. Any one got any ideas on how to fix this?

    this is a constant problem? did you install any software before this started happening? OS9 or OSX? no error messages, it just quits?

    Its a constant problem, the only thing I've installed in the last little while are some quicktime codecs, I'm on OS 9 and there is no error message, it just quits.

    heh, oh yeah. the stuffit chicken and the egg scenario. :nya:

    erm. if i put the application folder in my public directory on my iDisk you should be able to copy it over right? i've never done this before. when i get home from work tonight i'll try that and let you know. my iDisk is jakeman.

    oh hey, try deleting your stuffit preference file. and if all else fails try the standard "zap the pram, rebuild the desktop, delete the finder prefs file." :D
