    Create a new User go to System Preferences > Accounts > "+" (make it an admin acct) and test the apps in this new account, if they work the problem is isolated to your User and not systemwide.


    Also, are you sure the Desktop is chosen as the location to save to. Do a Save As and see.

    You can change the location, I just wanted to be sure....


    Since the issue is systemwide, I'd suggest dowloading and installing the 10.6.8 Combo.

    This is a fuller install, as opposed to an incremental "delta" update so it should overwrite any files that are damaged or missing. It does not matter if you have applied it before.

    Remember to Verify Disk before update and repair permissions after update from /Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility.
