    I have seem to run into a problem i can't figure out. iMovie, Excel, Powerpoint, and a few other apps would not launch. It keeps getting the "unexpectedly quits" message. However, launching it from the terminal and it's fine. I've rebooted, repaired permissions, fsck'd, reinstalled... several times. I don't have Diskwarrior, techtool, or drive 10 (although i plan to get some sort of utility soon). Any other suggestions besides wiping the drive and reinstalling the OS? Thanks.

    btw, I'm on a Ti 800mhz, 768MB Ram

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you can do a disk repair from the install disk that is (I think) more intensive. I could be wrong on this one though. It could be the exact same thing as doing it from the startup disk.

    i also think that there is a utility that can be used to find and repair certain problems. it might help you, but if that doesn't work, then i don't know anything else besides backing up files, wiping the disk, and reinstalling everything.:(
