    Hi guys!
    My disk utility app is corrupted. It show the error:
    Dyld Error Message:Library not loaded: /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/GraphKit.framework/Versions/A/GraphKit

    I googled it, but I only got the advise to re-install, or use Pacifist to get just Disk Utility from the disk.

    Problem is: my brother left the install disk inside a laptop he then got repaired, so the disk is gone..

    Is there any other way I can get this app back?

    Thanks a lot in advance!

    What Mac OS X version do you have exactly, maybe I could upload the correct one for you (I have Mac OS X 10.6.5)?

    YOu may need to do a restore and clean up alot of potentially corrupted files.

    A cleaner app like Onyx may do some of the behind the scenes tidying that disk utility does for you in the short term. But something is not happy with your install.

    Try creating a second user and see if the app works with that user or not.

    I'm not quite sure I understand. I have another account on my computer that has been there as long as my account, and it doesn't work on there either.
    If I installed an app like Onyx, how would I know which files to restore or delete? Would the app tell me? The main reason I need Disk Utility is to reformat a USB-drive that I have encrypted and now want to be open again, and because I want to create another partition on my HDD, to use for Boot Camp.
