Sorry for not getting hold of your problem at the right end but maybe one or both of these would be a starting point

You'll find them
under your HD Library folder don't trash them at first just move them to the Desktop
Have you tried a re-boot that helps now and again.. If not then maybe some one else can help you

hi

yes it was naughty and rude, but he just wasn't any help until i grabbed his attention. anyway it would fit you better if you concentrated on helping problem solve rather than comment on others manners just for the sake of it ( now that's rude ) ()

kind regards
