Summary: my computer half broke.

Apparently, your computer "being unable to expand" a security patch and primary browser update is bad. Not only does the browser not work, but all of the nice convenient shortcuts don't either: no dock, no dashboard, etc. It won't even soft restart/shut down. And the software now says that it's up to date. I got the whole patch separately, but I don't know what the hell I'm supposed to do with it once it's on my desktop.

I'm trying to decide whether I should take it in for a diagnostic and see if an expert can set me straight. This is fucking annoying.

You should be able to install the patch or run it as a program somehow. I doubt this is a difficult fix--it shouldn't take long for an expert to handle.

Do you have your OSX disks? If so, you should be able to run an archive install, which should fix things up quite nicely. It's all the experts would do.
