    Hi All,

    Whenever i try to attache any files in mail, it quits and i have to reopen it. Also if i try to attach a file in chrome or safari the window won't pop up to allow me to browse for any files to attach, this is on multiple sites from sendspace to gmail. On sendspace just freezes and i have to force quit chrome/safari with soundcloud it says the following plug in has crashed: shockwave flash (i've tried reinstalling flash). It seems there is a problem with any time i need to browse for files to attach etc. I'm also having the same problem with Time Machine where it won't allow me to select files to exclude since no window pops up when i click the + button. The finder by itself works ok as far as i can tell.

    I've tried repairing disk permissions and disc repair rebooting off my install disc and it says that the disc is repaired. I've also done memtest and got an all clear. Any ideas? Tried googling and can't find anyone with the same problem.

    Might be a coincidence but don't remember this issue before upgrading to 10.7.2 from 10.7.1 a few days ago.


    MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.2), 2.2Ghz Intel Core i7 - 8 GB 1333MHz

    here's part (i can post the full one if that helps) of the report that's being sent to Apple from the mail crash if anyone can make any sense of it:

    Re-downloaded and installed Lion over the top and sorted the problem out. Seems that my 10.7.2 update was corrupt. Hope this helps someone else who has this problem.
