As you can see from the pic that should be below, all of my cocoa metal apps have no close, minimize, or grow(zoom) buttons. I cannot archive and re-install as i do not have enough disk space. I have tried replacing the cocoa.framework file i have tried re-installing the apps i have tried trashing my prefs, system wide from a >console login i am out of ideas. anyone? please ... i cannot afford to loose all of my information just for this. i know there must be an answer out there. ps. this only occured once i installed the 10.2.4 update. My dad and bro have instaled with no problems, what went wrong.
