Haven't touched a Mac pretty much all summer, so I'm out of practice . . could be any number of things. Did you recently install software that uses its own installer? Some poorly-written, third-party installers have been known to change permissions on System-related folders, then neglect to set them back, causing problems after the installation. I suggest jumping on the forum board over at spymac.com. They've been a great help for me over the years.

This is hindsight, but it can't be said enough times . . back up your files frequently, 'coz it'll always bite you in the ass at the wrong time

Try repair permissions. After every software update, and about every 2 weeks: close all apps and log totally off. Log on, go in Finder, Applications. Utilities, Disk Utility. After the message -getting disk information- select volume (below the hard drive name -upper left corner). Just highlight it. Now look to the lower two things are there near the middle, verify permissions, >click repair permissions. If that doesn't help, restart in single user terminal. Restart holding Apple S. In the terminal type /sbin/fsck -fy over until the file system message stops showing
