New Security Update (11-04) quits during install

in macOS edited January 2014
Is anyone else having this problem. Both from SU panel and from a downloaded package, and after a reboot the current Security update will not complete and quits while 'Looking for software'.

Also, my system now often does NOT run items in the /Library/StartupItems folder. Sometimes it does run the items, but most times it does not. I have a mini firewall (just runs /sbin/ipfw /etc/ipfw.conf) and MySQL startup. These worked fine under Jaguar. I have run 'Fix Permissions' and have checked that the files in startupitems have the right permissions.

Any help appreciated.

    Clean install is best, lol. Time to start from scratch. There are to many hacks and other things that can mess up a computer. Less is more*sarcastic*.

    Thank You.
