    It's a bit of a bug in the cache. Find a file named com.apple.preferencepanes.cache in the Cache folder in your Home folder's Library and delete it. Do this while System Preferences is closed though. :)

    I had that exact same thing happen to me on my MacBook as well. But recently it somehow fixed itself :confused:

    The periodicals will clear out the cache which is why it should fix itself eventually, anyway. :)

    My periodicals don't clear out the cache, they were removed by my doctor which is probably why...what is a periodical?
