Try using Disk Utility to do a Disk Repair, as shown in this link, while booted up on your install disk. You could have some directory corruption. Let us know what errors Disk Repair reports and if DU was able to repair them. This could just be a start in repairs and you may need a better utility to finish the job.
Then Repair Permissions.
No need to report any Permissions errors........we all get them.

Thank you for the advice, I'm kind of busy with school right now and don't have my install disc currently, but I'll be getting it back within the next couple of days and then I'll try to Disk Utility. I just have a few questions before I end up doing it, would you suggest that I back everything up on an external HD before going through with the Disk Utility?

I would back up your files in case something goes haywire, but keep in mind some of those files may be damaged. But it's probably better then not backing up. Then run your Disk Repair.

Hey man, sorry I read this and completely forgot about it cause I've been swamped with school. It turned out that my HD crashed, but after replacing the HD I was still getting the issue of applications not opening so I took it back into Apple a third time and they did an iLife restore or something like that and my Macbook has been working fine ever since. Once again, sorry for the extremely late response.
