Hi. Just installed Mavericks (10.9.2)on my wife's MacBook Pro. It all seemed to go fine, the desktop looks like it did before, but when I click an icon in the dock the background goes flat grey for a second (the icons remain) and the dock slides away then returns. But nothing launches. The only thing that responds correctly is Finder. I've tried opening apps from Finder but get a similar response with no app opening. I've been able to open Preview by clicking on a pdf and a jpg but not EVERY pdf or jpg, just a random few.

I tried re-installing and fixing permissions and repairing the disk. No luck. We've got a fairly recent backup but what a pain. Anyone got any ideas before I do a wipe'n'load?
