Mac OS X Zip Expanding Utility

Firefox (and possibly other applications) may ask you what you want to do with .zip archives that you download from the Internet. If you want to expand them with Mac OS X (rather than StuffIt Expander), you may be unsure of which application actually does the job. You're looking for Archive Utility (in Leopard and later) or BOMArchiveHelper (in Tiger). In either case, the application is stored in Hard Drive/System/Library/Core Services/. Don't move it from there, though, or you'll confuse matters.

Security Update 2006-002 v1.1 Fixes Safari Glitch -- Apparently, some people who moved Safari out of their Applications folders ran into a problem after updating to the recent Security Update 2006-002 where Safari would have a blank icon and not launch. If you were bitten by this glitch, Apple has released Security Update 2006-002 v1.1, available for PowerPC Macs (13.9 MB) and Intel Macs (15.4 MB). So far, the update appears only as a downloadable file, not via Software Update. [JLC]
