    I Can't Drag and Drop on desktop and anyother files!
    Well yesterday my MacBook wouldn't start up so I had to perform a Repair Disk Permissions and my MacBook was running again. But when I got on my MacBook again it wouldn't let me drag and drop anything! I've restarted and everything but nothing happens. HELP!

    PapaDoink,

    Try this: http://www.santasw.com/ Mainmenu will run maintenance and permissions scripts. If you go to the Mainmenu preferences, you can set it up to run an Automated batch for all the tasks and it will keep your whole Macbook in good shape. Run Batch tasks every day or two...

    Can't install that because to install I have to drag to my applications folder.

    Is that true for either a mouse or the trackpad?
