Today, I upgraded to OS X 10.8.3.  After that, each time I double click Preview or TextEdit, the following dialog box comes up:




Mac OS X needs to repair your Library to run applications.  Type your password to allow this.



[Cancel]  [Repair]




I enter the info and then click [Repair].  After that, the Preview or TextEdit app icon bounces for 1-2 seconds in the bottom icon bar, and then quits.


I have tried repairing permission, but still no luck.


Can anyone please help?


Many thanks in advance.



iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3)
