    Close System Preferences, then look for a file called "com.apple.preferencepanes.cache"...it's in <your user directory>/Library/Caches. Drag it to your Desktop and then try opening System Preferences again. If all looks well, you can go ahead and trash the file you dragged to your Desktop.

    *ridiculous elvis impression* thank you, thank you very much. It worked like a charm.


    Any ideas why it became corrupted?

    Nope...no clue. Seems to be happening pretty frequently on Intel Macs...haven't heard of it happening much (if at all) on PPCs.
