Help: My System Prefs won't open
on Aug 5, 2007 at 1:57:42 am

Ok experts. Please help!

In a G4 Powermac, I can't launch my System Preferences ap.

Here's the info it tells me to report to Apple, but I can't figure out how to fix it. The only thing I think I should do is reinstall OSX Tiger.
Please tell me your opinions, and Thank You in advance.

First off there is no need to copy and past all that into the post, only Apple Software engineers will be able to make anything of it.

Have you tried repairing the disk permissions?

If that douse not work then do an archive and install.
