Close System Preferences, then look for a file called "com.apple.preferencepanes.cache"...I think it's in in <your user directory>/Library/Caches. Drag it to your Desktop and then try opening System Preferences again. If all looks well, you can go ahead and trash the file you dragged to your Desktop.

It seems you have to answer that question so often you have it permently copied to your clipboard. ;) :p

I almost answered the question myself but it didn't seem quite right, so I made sure to give you the credit. ...After all, it's your official job here at MacRumors. :D

It's just a glitch with image caches...seems to be very common on the Intel-based machines for some reason.

This question seems to be popping up a lot lately, and its almost always intel Macs. I wonder if we should sticky the solution?
