    If this doesn't provide a fix... then post back with a little more details such as the version of OS X you are running, whether you've tried logging in to a different user account and seeing of the problem persists, and what if any other troubleshooting you have tried.

    Go to application>utilities>disk utility and select Macintosh HD (under the name of your HD), and click repair permissions tab.
    Best to do this by booting from your install disk or using OnyxOnyX

    I get more words in than most people most of the time when I'm typing, otherwise, I go with the less is more approach!
