    I was using my Mac normally. I tried to open iTunes and got an error. I decided to restart the computer. Restarting was going normally, but at the stage of entering username and password, Mac tells me that my startup disk is full. I proceed, Mac recognises password and it gets me to the regular screen and mouse arrow appears. Nothing happens then. No icons, prgrams, nothing. I can't delete anything as I have no icons. What should I do? I tried rebooting few times but get the same thing.

    try repairing permissions, first off you will need your install discs, restart the computer, as soon as you hear the bong press the C key which will boot to CD.

    From here go up to utilities-disk utilities and click on your harddrive and repair permissions, if that doesn't work clean install the OS.
