Thread: User Problem?
05-12-2005, 09:24 AM #1chrisregentbGuestUser Problem?
Hi, this is the second time this happened to me. I am using OS 10.3 What happens is a user gets screwed up, You click to open the hard drive or try to open anything and it just spins on you, until you force quit. Although when I rebooted in OS 9 I don't have that problem, or when I create a new user in OS X I don't have that problem as well. I repaired permissions, repaired hd, dumped preferences, with the same results. In the past I copied the user documents, desktop, etc. to a new user in order to fix that problem. Does anyone know what causes that, and maybe a better way to fix it other than creating a new user? Thanks

Try starting in "safe boot" mode. Log the user out, then as you are logging the userback in hold down on the shift key. If you are then able to access the HD then there is something that is installed that is corrupt. Probably a third party application. You would then neeed to do some detective work to find the bad boy (or girl).I don't know what tomorrow holds, but I know who holds tomorrow.
