    No Applications or Hardrive icon and no finer permissions or permissions at all
    Okay, so one day i log into my mac and i get No Applications or Hardrive icon and no finder permissions or permissions at all. I keep getting permission errors of software trying to start. I've ran the account off of an external hardrive and everything shows up. I've even replaced the user folder with another and still they don't come up.

    G'day and welcome to the forums.

    Sounds like you are having internal hard drive problems.

    Boot off the install disk, or whilst running external, go into Utilities . Disk Utiulity, select the internal and run Repair Disk and see what is reported.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
