    I was trying to play a free downloadable game from sites like games.yahoo.com and miniclip.com but when I go to open it it brings up a warning asking if I want to open it as it was downloaded from the internet and I say ok and then it brings up a window with a bunch of symbols/letters. Can someone help me. I tried to copy/past in the text that came up but it kept freezing safari on me.

    Thanks,
    Malinda

    Try Firefox as your browser if Safari gives you pain.

    I wonder if something is wrong w/my macbook then as I just got it 10 days ago (orderd off apple.com) and it won't install aperture either. I tried to and it says it was installed properly but when try to open it it keeps looping me to enter in my reg code then it says that it failed to open and do I want to resubmit and I click yes only for it to tell me that it can't open. And so the cycle starts all over.

    it's very frusterating but thanks for the help

    check if the game you dowloaded is for mac. usually it is in the dmg or disk image format. some are in .pkg format. if you downloaded .exe files, those are for windows.
