I gave you a pretty clear valid reason to as to why I can't backup and re-install, which in itself is extreme anyway. But whatever, no need to throw a hissy.
I'm not throwing a hissy fit, but you are ignoring advice that you CAN and should do… i.e. test your drive, partition your drive and try a clean install on that, etc. You don't HAVE to take any advice, but we certainly don't HAVE to offer any either.


Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu). Also advise us if you have any antivirus or "cleaning" software installed on your Mac. If you are using MacKeeper, you are hereby advised to uninstall it.
