    Problem Opening "Applications"...
    This is an odd problem I've had for a long time, and I'm finally trying to rid of it. I have a MacBook, and for some reason, when I click to open the Applications, it loads all the apps in about a couple minutes, and then gives me an error about some "open" thing needing to be relaunched, and next thing you know, I can't do a thing and have to shut down. I've tried to load AppZapper and see if I can't eliminate questionable Applications, but I can't even get them to load in there. My guess is that I have an app that just doesn't want to get deleted...

    Is there any way I can rid of this issue without reformatting or anything? It seems like one of these S.O.L. situations... Thanks in advance.

    How many apps are you trying to open at once?

    I'm not trying to open any applications- I'm simply trying to view my folder of Applications. Sorry if that wasn't mentioned properly.

    Ahh... Ok.
    First thing to try is to create a new user account and see if the problem remains. (it'll help isolate if it's just your account or system wide)

    I would also use Disk Utility from the Utilities folder and Repair Permissions and Verify Disk.
