    Ok, then... it was worth a shot...

    A bit more information could be in order...

    - is it just iTunes that refuse to open?
    - does the problem persist if you log into another user account?
    - how did you reinstall Mac OS X (and why)?
    - are you speaking of Panther (10.3) or Tiger (10.4)?
    - have you used Software Update to get up-to-date or did you downloaded
    the combo updater?
    - is it the Mini in your sig?
    - etc, etc.

    :)

    I know it's not easy to type the answers to a lot of questions on a PSP, but bear with people who are trying to help you. :(

    If repairing permissions didn't help....

    1) Try repairing the *disk*. Do this by booting off the OS X install DVD and choosing Utilities -> Disk Utility from the menu.

    2) Go to your accounts system prefs and make sure that your user is at least a standard user. If you already are, try making yourself an admin (if you aren't now).

    3) Try to create a new account and see if you can access apps from it.
