My IPhoto has become unresponsive when I try to access "Preferences", and a couple of other instances. I have rebuilt the library from the "common-option" feature at start up. I have deleted the plist file, and none of this has worked. I am running 10.7.5 on a MacBook. A friend installed the Lion but I don't have the disk.
Should I buy a new copy of IPhoto and overwrite the existing one? Uninstall the existing one first?

Are there other options? I'm in Costa Rica now and trying to find help is somewhat of a challenge.

Thanks,
Dave

Try trash the com.apple.iPhoto.plist file from the HD/Users/ Your Name / library / preferences folder.
Remember you'll need to reset your User options afterwards, and if you have moved your library,
you'll have to point iPhoto to it again.
