You need to work on making more complete description of the problem. This is the best description of the problem so far. The information in the title should be in the post too.
from an earlier message:

You should not be getting this message.
there is a message which comes onto the screen initialy saying LIBRARY/STARTUPITEMS/.DS-STORE
You should be able to move the panel.
Let's try safe boot.
Shutdown your machine. Hold down the shift key. Poweron. Wait awhile Wait awhile while you harddrive
is being checked.
let's use disk utility to verify the disk & repair permissions.
Verify a disk
As an alternative, you can verify that the filesystem on the disk is correct. You will not be able to repair the file system.
I suggest that you use disk utility to verify that your startup disk is OK.
Macintosh-HD -> Applications -> Utilities -> Disk Utility
Start up disk utility. On the left pane view, you will see a list of all your disks.
Click on your startup disk.
Click on the First Aid Tab.
Click on verify.
Hopefully your disk will verify. If not, you have to boot from your installation DVD and run Disk Utility from there to attempt to repair your file-system.
Now use disk utility to fix up the permissions.
At some time you should reboot.
