It also won't help me copy and paste or take screen shot to show you guys.

please help me!!!!
Your hard drive is full? As in COMPLETELY full with no free space? Ah…. yeah! That will cause problems because you have zero space for the cache. You need to free up some space. Try booting in Safe Mode to hopefully get a more usable system while you move some files to an external drive, or delete them. General rule of thumb is to have no less that 15% of free drive space available.


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.
