    Whenever I try to open Activity Monitor is just blinks and closes. Very similar to a program crash.

    I don't see any info, any window or really anything.

    What's the fix?

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    Trashed the prefs yet?

    (~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.ActivityMonitor.plist)

    Happens to me once and a while with Activity Monitor. Opening Disk Utility and repairing permissions always fixes it. Try that. :)

    Not yet on either

    Going to trash the prefs first. I'll report back on the result.

    OK. There is NO prefs file for the activity monitor. I did a search for activity and for monitor and it didn't show up.

    Going now to see if repairing permissions works. BRB.

    PERFECT!!! Repairing permissions took forever, but it works like a dream now.

    Thanks,

    Jeff
