Mac OS X 10.5.6 Update Crashing Systems

Since the release of the new update on Monday several reports have surfaced claiming installation of the update "completely kills" users systems.

Two separate articles released by PC Magazine, " Mac OS X 10.5.6 Update Crashing Users' Systems" and "More Users Report Apple's Update Kills Their Macs" outline many of the complaints. The most common of which seem to be broken Bluetooth connections, devices no longer being recognize, no sound or even worse large popping noises during boot-up and dead USB ports. In a few rare cases it looks as though the updated was to blame for completely dead machines.

Several threads have popped up on the Apple Support Forums with a growing amount of users asking for assistance. Apple tech support has been able to get a few of those users back up and running, but it would appear as though the majority of people haven't been helped.

In the short term it would appear as though it might be best to hold off on installing the update. At least until Apple has had the chance to address these reports.
