    I'm having a few issues with my iMac running 10.7.2.

    Software update doesn't work. It says, "checking for new software" the bar loads up to like 30% and hangs up there. It never goes anywhere.

    There are also several items in System Preferences that don't work, such as iCloud and Security & Privacy. The application doesn't respond when clicking on those items and I have to force quit system preferences.

    I've tried running these items in safe boot and that didn't work. In recovery mode, I repaired the disk and permissions.

    What can be done?
