You might try disk permission fix using Disk Utility.

I looked on Apple's Support Community and this was occurring to numerous people back in November 2012.
http://discussions.apple.com/thread/...art=0&tstart=0

One poster discovered that booting into Safe Mode corrected things, this was confirmed by several others.

I'd give this a shot. Good luck, if it works, please let us know.
