    Something’s wrong, yes. You’ll probably need to re-install your OS (from the original DVDs, the Snow Leopard disc, or Lion install). Not a clean install, just a normal re-install that leaves everything else there fine, just gives you a fresh copy of the OS. If you haven’t done that before, then maybe a visit to the Apple Store Genius Bar would help.

    So when i re-install my OS they give me an option whether to normal reinstall or a clean reinstall?

    thanks!!

      Normal install. Do NOT do a clean install. And you have your Time Machine backup up-to-date, right?

    i only started one yesterday, but i have all my files backed up on around 2 hard drives anyway so that shouldn’t be a problem :)
