Thanks for the help thus far!! It's much appreciated.
It is very possible that in your tinkering you might have caused some damage. First thing would be to do a Permissions Repair
Go to Applications>Utilities>Disk Utility
Then just select your HD from the left and choose Repair Permissions.

The worst case scenario might be an Archive and Install, but that would only be due to the fact that you altered your home folder too much.
A reinstall or Archive and Install should always be your LAST step to fix something.
