    Give this a try:

    :apple: Mac OS X: What is Safe Boot, Safe Mode?

    While booted into Safe Boot Mode, give the System Preferences a try. Hopefully, they'll work. Either way, once you've tried that then you can do a Restart and it'll restart back into normal mode. Once in normal mode again you can try the System Preferences.
