    Mactheripper and Popcorn wont open along with others...
    Im trying to back up some of the DVD's I own. Mactheripper opened and worked once along with Popcorn so I backed up one DVD. Now mactheripper and Popcorn wont open. when I try the dock barley moves over and thats it. I
    have a demo version of Dreamweaver and Fireworks and they do the same thing. I moved them to trash and reinstall them and still the same thing.

    I tried to repair permissions and delete the preferences but that didnt help.

    Is there anything else I can try before reinstalling OS X?

    There are several things you can try first. Reinstalling is almost never needed. Take a look at this thread first:

    The Mac-Forums Basic OS X Troubleshooting Thread

    Try ALL of the steps before you resort to reinstalling.
