can't figure out what i did. i'm running osx 10.2 on a 17" powerbook. had it just over a year. the problem i'm experiencing is when i open programs in the past few days i get an error saying "the application cannot be launched because the system is incompatible". it happens with just about every program. most of the time i have to right click and find if there's an older version of the program and maybe it will open in there. i'm pretty newb to apples, but i fell in love hard with their beauty. i'm trying to learn more so please, if anyone knows what i can do or have experienced a similar problem, post with some help. thanks a lot.

Can you list the apps that produce the error? Is this a classic/OS 9 issue?

preview, is the one i remember off the top of my head. i never use os 9, so i dont think it would be that. also, the other error message that i've been getting is something along the lines of "this is the first time that the application _________ has been opened..", but i've had it over a year. does that help?
can't open text edit. my system preferences won't open from the Apple menu in the top left. i have it in the dock, but i click on it and nothing happens from the apple menu.

"this is the first time...." sounds like ParanoidAndroid. Did you install it?
If you cant run DiskUtil boot from the install cd and run it from there.
Check the disk and repair permissions.

If that still gives problems restart holding Apple S for single user terminal and type /sbin/fsck -fy until ***file system changed*** stops showing

Running fsck (file system check) will resolve his problem.Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, It's about learning to dance in the rain!
