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?
If you have a recent backup try a clean instal. I dont know what OS you were running before but the general opinion seems to be a clean instal with Mavericks is best.
Let us know if that works.
