    Good day guys ,

    I am having a sort of weird problem .
    Alot of the preinstalled software that comes with Mac OS ,are not working .
    For example : Facetime , preview , photobooth ....Terminal ....
    All of the above programs are doing the exact same problem ,
    after being clicked , they appear to be about to open , (icon jumping etc )
    but nothing happens , due to the fact that preview is not working , i cannot view any photos on the macbook.

    I have tried creating new user and trying to open them but again same issue .

    Please let me know if anyone has any suggestions please .

    Perhaps something in the OS was corrupted and you may want to reinstall the OS. Be sure to back everything up first.

    Something i forgot to mention is that this is the 2nd laptop now .
    The 15 inch had this problem ,
    i restored with Time machine on the 13th inch and problem appeared on the 13inch as well .

    Perhaps there is something in your Time Machine back up that is corrupt which is being restored to the new machine/install.

    Perhaps try a new user account?? If that works, move your files over?
