    not really a big problem but... i'm curious as to what could be causing this.

    i'm running 10.4.11 and even... reinstalled and all that happened is the screwed up icon switched. how would i repair this.

    Close system preferences and delete the following files from ~/Library/Cache

    com.apple.preferencepanes.cache
    com.apple.preferencepanes.searchindexcache

    Should fix it.

    And if that doesn't work you could remove this:

    com.apple.systempreferences.plist

    Just an FYI: We do have a guide that addresses this issue.

    This question used to pop up all the time here, but I haven't seen it in a while...interesting to see that it still pops up in 10.4.11.
