Seems fine in safe mode. Regular boot takes forever and lacks icons, most programs work albeit slowly by clicking on titles. Have tried to restore permissions to no effect. Ran anti virus programs, saphos and others. and machine is supposedly clean. I first noticed that i couldn't move files on the desk top or into other files. Rebooting caused icons to start disappearing, till all I could see was the file name. also lost the dock entirely, except in safe mode. May have started after updating flash player. Now flash player plugin fails in all browsers; not only that, now QuickTime has started crashing. Tried reverting to earlier version of flash player but no help. Even when installing it doesn't end up where its supposed to go. Library/ internet plugins. Any ideas??? short of reinstalling the os as my super drive is on the fritz.
P.S. now I notice my icons are going even in safe mode
p.p.s. not seeing any return posts can someone reply just so i know i'm doing this right.
