    Every time I try to open Fetch I get the notice "The application Fetch has unexpectedly quit. The system and other applications have not been affected."

    G4 Mac, OS 10.2.8

    I even bought & downloaded a new copy. Still no luck. Any ideas?

    Try removing the "Fetch Prefs", "Fetch Cache" and "Fetch Shortcuts" files from your Preferences folder (it's in the Library folder in your home folder). Does that help?

    Thanks,

    I tried this with no effect. Problem remains.

    One other file you might want to remove is com.fetchsoftworks.Fetch.plist, also in the Preferences folder.

    If the problem persists, could you run the Console application (it's in the Utilities folder of the Applications folder) and turn on "Enable crash reporting" and "Automatically show crash logs" in the "Crash" section of Console's Preferences? Then you could post the crash log that appears, and it may contain clues.

    Thanks,

    It looks like your Internet Config settings are corrupt; you might try removing com.apple.internetconfig.plist from your Preferences folder.
